Machu Picchu Unique Experience in One Day!
Get your unique experience in just one full day from Cusco. Travelling through high mountain valleys carved from powerful rushing rivers. A trip into high Andean grasslands and, most of all, a trip through history. Furthermore, it is, by all accounts, a region of culture. You will encounter colourful markets and remarkable people dressed in distinctive but regionally varied traditional clothing. Women carry babies, wrapped in bright blankets, on their backs. Men with broad sandal-clad feet bent under heavy loads, move with a quick shuffling gait. All amidst the majestic ruins, ancient terraces, rimmed valleys, and beside puna lakes shimmering beneath blue skies.
The combination of scenery and history is incomparable on this trip. The ruins as always, remain impressionable, mysterious, and evocative. The more so perhaps, which makes it a much more humbling and astonishing experience. Because so little is actually known of their origins, especially their breathtaking and towering location.
The ruins of Machu Picchu are indeed one of the world’s great travel destinations. But they are, in themselves, just a brief chapter in a long, and fascinating history of human occupation and livelihood in the Urubamba river valley.
This is a tour not to be missed!
