Days 4-8: The Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu
<< Previous | Next >>

We splurged on a taxi to take us from Cuzco to Ollantaytambo, in the heart of the Sacred Valley. After climbing out of the city, we were rewarded with some gorgeous (pun not intended) views of the Valley and surrounding countryside. On the valley floor in this picture is our first view of the Urubamba River, which cuts all the way through the Sacred Valley, past Machu Picchu, and finally to the Amazon.
