Start Packet Peru-Cusco adventure, 7 days with 2 days Incatrail, Sacred Valley, rafting, mountain bike

Cusco Traditional 7 days adventure packet 

Cusco, the Inca capital. A city that is full of adventure. For people who like to visit Cusco in a different way, this is the perfect start packet

Cusco claims to be the oldest continuously inhabited city in the Americas. It was the religious and administrative capital of the Inca Empire and the equivalent of Mecca for the Inca’s subjects; every person of importance throughout the empire tried to visit Cusco once in his lifetime. Most travelers usually end up seduced with this vibrant city and stay longer than first planned. The first thing that hits the newly arrived visitor to Cusco is the Inca walls, enormous granite blocks carved to fit together perfectly without the aid of mortar beds. Many of the walls were built upon during the construction of a new Spanish city. It’s a tribute to the Incas that their anti-seismic design has survived the test of time while the Spanish colonial architecture has been rebuilt several times following a wave of earthquakes that have hit the city. Located at an altitude of 3.360m above sea level, Cusco was referred to as the ‘Navel of the World’. In these 7 days, you do some adventure like mountain bike, rafting and 2 days Incatrail
