The Sacred Valley in Peru continues to grow in popularity with travellers who are looking for an authentic travel experience. Describing the land that extends between the towns of Pisac and Ollantaytambo, the Sacred Valley is the former heart of the Inca Empire, starting just 10 miles outside of Cusco. Trips here reward visitors with incomparable Inca ruins, stunning Andean mountain vistas, charming towns, a good climate, and plenty of opportunities to get out and enjoy the countryside. Rushing through the Sacred Valley is the Urubamba River. Fast flowing in parts you can enjoy white water rafting and other high velocity water sports. Trek through its hills and mountains, or hike part of the Inca Trail. The Urubamba River receives water from various streams that descend through the surrounding gorges, and the endless differing landscapes here are a photographer's delight. The most popular tourist attraction in or near the valley is Machu Picchu, which lies at the valley's north end and is a definite must-see.
