OVERVIEW:

 

The Inca Empire tour 10 days and 9 nights is a Perfect for those looking to experience the region’s archeological and cultural treasures in a long amount of time, the Inca Empire tour include the Lima city tour, Cusco City tour, Sacred Valley of the Incas, journey to the lost city of the Incas Machu Picchu, Puno (LAKE TITICACA) and Copacabana.

 

Cusco is located at an altitude of 3,360m above sea level. Cusco, which means ‘’navel of the world’’ in the Inca language (Quechua), has a mostly indigenous population of around 500,000 and is centered around the Plaza de Armas, which is dominated by the Cathedral and La Compañia de Jesus Church. Its cloistered arcades house many fine restaurants, bars and shops. Make the most of your free days in Cusco to explore its amazing churches, colonial buildings and picturesque streets, many of which have Inca walls, arches and doorways. On a hill overlooking the city stands the archaeological park of Sacsayhuaman, where some of the most spectacular Inca walls can be found, including a massive 128 ton stone. There are also many optional excursions and activities available such as white water rafting, horse riding, and mountain biking and canoeing on offer.

 

Cusco is often referred to as the ‘’Archaeological Capital of the Americas’’, Cusco is a beautiful city riddled with contrasts between the indigenous styles and the modern western world. It is these contrasts that have given Cusco its rare beauty.

 

When arriving in Cusco from the coast you will immediately notice the thin clear mountain air, a result of the City’s high altitude. The first day in particular should be spent quietly relaxing and taking things easy as you gently acclimatize. This is an ideal opportunity to see the highlights Cusco has to offer such as a tour of the City, the nearby Inca Ruins of Sacsayhuaman, Qenqo, Puca Pucara and Tambomachay and, of course, a day trip out to the Sacred Valley of the Incas including a visit to the traditional Indian market at Pisac, the beautiful village of Ollantaytambo and the small village of Chinchero located high up in the mountains.

 

Festivals and legends on the shores of Lake Titicaca.

  Puno is located on the Andean plain dominated by the presence of Titicaca Lake, a sacred place for the Incas, with both natural and artificial islands, as well as pre-Hispanic archaeological sites with circular constructions known as chullpas.

Also there are churches with markedly colonial architecture. The region’s people are proud of their Quechua and Aymara past and a folkloric tradition that overflows each year during the Candelaria festival.

  Puno is a legend, with multi colour festivals and natural and artificial islands.
