Sacred Valley of the Incas - Urubamba

The Sacred Valley of the Incas is a valley in the Andes. It is also known as Urubamba Valley as it is formed by the Urubamba River. The valley mutely flows through numerous archaeological remains and villages. It encompasses the heartland of the Inca Empire. The Sacred Valley is commendably picturesque and mesmerizing. The beauty of this quaint part of Peru snuggled high in mountains is comparatively unvoiced.

Intihuatana - Urubamba

It is located 3,300–3,400 meters above sea level, near the town of Písac in the Urubamba Valley. The Intihuatana was so-called because the Incas are believed to have “tied” the sun to a hitching post during sunrise on the solstice to stop it from going any further away. It is said to be important in telling Inca when to harvest their crops. Archaeologists believe that it was used for making astronomical observations and calculating the passing of time.
