The Sacred Valley, in Cusco city, comprises several rivers that descend through gullies forming different valleys. Here, we can find several archaeological monuments and indigenous towns like Pisac, Yucay, Urubamba, Chincheros, among others.

This valley was very appreciated by the Incas because of its climate and geographic characteristics. It was one of the main agricultural production spots, especially producing corn. With the arrival of the Spaniards, the towns’ culture began to change creating a mixture that we can still see nowadays in their architecture, traditions and art. Chincheros stands out for its weavers, Pisac for its ruins and its craft market, Ollantaytambo for its fortress and living culture, Maras for its impressive technique to extract salt and Moray for their use of advanced engineering to grow different products.

The highest point of the road is the Patapampa viewpoint at 4,900 m.a.s.l., a stop point that is a must to see the zone’s volcanos.

Chivay is the main town and the most developed one. Here, we can find most of the average and low-cost hotels. Throughout the canyon we can find several lovely small towns such as Yanque, Maca, Lari, Coporaque, among others, where we can find more sophisticated and more expensive hotels.

The Amazon River gives the Peruvian rainforest its name. It was discovered by Francisco de Orellana in 1541 and it is the largest and mightiest river in the world. Its watercourse reaches a width of 4,000 meters in some sectors making it look like a sea. All the rivers that have their origin on the eastern slope of the Andes are tributaries of the Amazon River. They form swamps, marshes and channel labyrinths. The Peruvian rainforest has an area of 8o million hectares where many flora and fauna species inhabit. It is said that its former inhabitants called the Amazon Paranaguasú that means “great river”. It is also said that the river’s name is product of the union of two indigenous words ama (to break) and zona (canoe): canoe-breaker.

Iquitos, the capital of Loreto department, is on the Amazon riverside and it is surrounded by other rivers like the Ninai and the Itaya rivers. In Iquitos, we can find native communities such as the Cocamas, the Boras, the Ticuna and the Witotos. The city was founded by the Jesuit José Bahamonde in 1747.
