“A smile will gain you ten more years of life…” – Chinese ProverbDay 08: Monday, 23 Oct 2017
Route: Sacred Valley – Chinchero - Cuzco
Hotel: Cuzco Eco Inn Hotel, Peru
We checked out after breakfast and boarded the bus and travelled out of Sacred Valley and headed towards Cuzco.
Sacred Valley was formed by the Urubamba River. It is fed by numerous tributaries which descend through adjoining valleys and gorges, and contains numerous archaeological remains and villages. The Sacred Valley was the most important area for maize production in the heartland of the Inca Empire and access through the valley to tropical areas facilitated the import of products such as coca leaf and chili peppers to Cuzco.
