It’s not hard to see why the Incas called it the Sacred Valley. The 70-mile narrow strip of land, in the Peruvian Andes, that runs roughly from the old imperial capital of Cusco to the enigmatic citadel of Machu Picchu remains a place of eerie natural beauty.
Many locals still speak Quechua — the language of the Incas. They also grow corn, raise alpacas and weave brightly colored textiles much as their ancestors did before the arrival of the Spaniards five centuries ago.
Then there are the area’s various other breathtaking Inca ruins that might be internationally renowned in their own right were they not overshadowed by Machu Picchu. For those making the once-in-a-lifetime pilgrimage to the citadel, the Sacred Valley is at the epicenter of it all.

Women in traditional Andean dress stroll along the cobblestone streets of colonial towns. Colorful village markets display soft alpaca sweaters, hats, and ponchos woven by hand.The Sacred Valley is tucked between Cusco and Machu Picchu, running along the Urubamba River from Pisac to Ollantaytambo.
