Sacred Valley of the Incas
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.

Following breakfast on the third day, I hiked by crossing the Vilcanota River by hanging in a basket or ‘Oroya’. The river is a segment of the Urubamba River. My next stop was the hydroelectric station village. I spent some time exploring the archaeological ruins of Intihuatana. It is a ritual stone associated with the astronomic clock or calendar of the Inca. After travelling for two more hours I arrived in Aguas Calientes, which is also known as Machupicchu Pueblo. It is the closest access point to the historical site of Machu Picchu. This place is enclosed by stone cliffs, cloud forest and rivers.
