Day 1: Cusco – Sacred Valley Lookout – Pisac – Urubamba – Maras Salt Mines – Moray – Ollantaytambo

To start our exciting extended tour of the Sacred Valley, your Peru Spirit Adventure private guide and driver will collect you from the lobby of your hotel in Cusco at 6:30 am and set off on our day trip from Cusco to the Sacred Valley of the Incas by the route that leads to Pisac.

Leaving the imperial city of Cusco, we’ll pass by Saqsaywaman and head over the mountains, enjoying breathtaking sight of the Andes that Cusco offers and stunning welcome views as we drive to Peru’s Sacred Valley

After scenic drive from Cusco in a comfortable van before continuing to Pisac, we’ll make our first stop at Mirador Taray to marvel at the Sacred Valley’s spectacular view, the Andes’ eastern mountain range Urubamba River.

Next, we’ll keep driving to the Pisac Archaeological Site, an ancient Inca settlement located in the upper part of the town with the same name, which boast impressive agricultural terracing of the Incan empire, and see an immense Inca cemetery that houses more than 2000 tombs, as well as impressive Incan architecture built on the slopes of the mountains.

At archeological complex of Pisac, you’ll also enjoy the beautiful views across the valley and around while learning the history of the Inca Empire from your private guide. After exploring the splendid Inca ruins of Pisac located on the top of an important mountain in the Sacred Valley.

We’ll head back to Pisac town to visit its colorful market (optional), where we can browse the array of local artisan work and other souvenirs – which of course you can buy to take home with you. We’ll spend about 20 minutes here.

Onwards, our private transport takes us on a scenic drive through the famous Sacred Valley along the winding Urubamba River, which also goes by the name of the Vilcanota River or the Wilcamayu River towards Urubamba town.

We’ll then turn off the route to western side of the Sacred Valley and head on to the salt pans of Maras, which were the main source of salt for the Incas themselves. At Maras Salt Mines, we’ll find a hundred salt evaporation ponds and salt mines of different sizes and shapes decorated on the mountainside, where locals still farm the salt by hands as the Incas used to do it centuries ago

After exploring the Salt Pans of Maras with your private guide, we’ll head to the Maras town to enjoy lunch (not included). Following lunch, we’ll head to magnificent Moray Archeological Complex, an Incan farming research center.

The archeological complex of Moray or Inca agricultural laboratory boast a series of circular terraces built in the natural hole into the earth like a huge amphitheater, with a beautiful landscape, amazing views of the Urubamba mountain range and surrounded by Veronica, Chicon and Sawasiray snow-capped mountains.

Besides, the Moray terraces have varied microclimates depending on how deep into the bowl they are placed. It is believed they were used by the Incas to research the optimal conditions for their crops.

Afterwards, we’ll continue to the Inca village of Ollantaytambo, the last living Inca town, dating from the late 15th century that preserves its old Inca urban design, and has some of the oldest continuously occupied dwellings in South America.

Once we get to Ollantaytambo town, we’ll visit its impressive archaeological site or an ancient Inca fortress situated high on a ridgeline with sweeping views of the Sacred Valley, including its imposing Temple of the Sun, whose 100 tons of construction rocks were brought from 5 miles away.

Also, this iconic Incan site of Ollantaytambo served as a stronghold for Manco Inca Yupanqui, leader of the Inca resistance, where the Incans defeated the Spaniards for several times during the Manco Inca’s rebellion after 1536.

Nowadays, Ollantaytambo, located in what is called the Sacred Valley of the Incas, is an important tourist attraction on account of its Inca ruins, and its location en route to the World Wonder of Machu Picchu and the starting point of the world-famous Inca Trail.

    • The information we will to Machu Picchu Park includes your full name, passport number, nationality, gender, and age. That information cannot be modified.
      • The only exception is in the case of a changed passport number due to renewal.
        • If your passport number changes between reserving your spot and the start of your trek, you will need to bring your old as well as your new passport to the start of the Trek.
      • If any of the information on your passport does not match the information we were previously provided, you won’t be able to start the trek.
    • If you arrive in Cusco and did not advise us that you have a new passport number, and that your information has changed, Peru Spirit Adventure will not be held responsible. In this situation it will be the responsibility of the customer to pay the extra expense of returning to Cusco or Machu Picchu (transportation, food and other expenses).

    TRAVEL IN PERU: Peru Spirit Adventure operates in regions, where standards of accommodation can vary. Transportation and other services might not be like those you would normally have back home. However, we strive with all due care and skill, to provide the best service for our clients. Traveling in Peru requires flexibility, patience, broad-mindedness, good humor and an understanding that changes may be made without notice due to circumstances or occurrences beyond our control. For example: a strike, protest, landslide, bad weather, etc. (Force Majeure). By booking any of our tours & treks, you agree to allow Peru Spirit Adventure to make necessary changes without liability.


    Force Majeure is any event that PERU SPIRIT ADVENTURE cannot with all due care foresee, control or avoid. This covers events such as war or threat of war, riot, civil strike, terrorist activity, industrial dispute, disease, natural disasters, adverse weather conditions, fire or all similar events beyond our control. In this case, PERU SPIRIT ADVENTURE will not accept liability and reserves the right to change, postpone or even cancel trips. (This is a last option, of course!)


    By booking any of our adventure trips (Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, Lares, Salkantay, Ausangate, Choquequirao, Rainbow Mountain trek and more) you assume the risks associated with personal accidents, medical emergencies, air travel problems etc. For these treks, PERU SPIRIT ADVENTURE Agency accepts no responsibility.


    • You must advise Peru Spirit Adventure of any medical problems or allergies you may have. You need to be in good physical health, and if your health is questionable, then you should consult a doctor. If you are over the age of 70 years old, then you will need to present us with a current good health medical certificate.
    • You must advise your guide if you wish to leave the group or the camping area for independent walks or sightseeing. If you are experiencing any problems with the services of the guide or tour, please advise the guide in that moment, so that he can resolve any problems.
    • All balances need to be paid in either cash or PayPal (see “FINAL PAYMENTS” section above).
    • In order to receive a student discount, you must send your valid University ID to Peru Spirit Adventure at the time of booking. ID must have your name, photo and valid expiration date. Any card without an expiration date will not be accepted. You will then be required to bring your student card with you on the trek – they will not allow you to pass through the checkpoint without this original card.
    • You will be required to show the original passport (not a copy) that you booked with, at the checkpoint to enter the Inca Trail. If you originally booked with an old passport and then renewed your passport, you must also bring your expired passport along with your new, valid passport to permit entry or they will refuse your entrance to the trail.
    • Cancellations: Your deposit is 100% non-refundable. If you need to cancel for any reason, as you approach your tour start date, there may be additional cost due. There are absolutely no exceptions (we do not accept medical notes of any kind) as our out of pocket expenses are non-refundable to us (see “CANCELLATION FEES” section above).
    • PERMITS: Permits for the Inca Trail are in your name and can not be transferred to anyone else under any circumstances. Change of dates is also not possible once a permit has been purchased. Permits are non-refundable and non-transferable. The deposit will be forfeited. Please note that this is a regulation of the Peruvian government and not PERU SPIRIT ADVENTURE (or any agency).
    • All Adventure Treks include transportation to Cusco. The return train route depends on train availability.
    • If you become ill or injured on the trail and are unable to continue, a porter will be provided to accompany you back to an area with emergency assistance capabilities. Helicopter airlifts and medical assistance are at the expense of the trekker. If you are unable to complete the tour due to illness, we will assist you in meeting your group at Machu Picchu to recommence your tour at that point. There will be no refund of the original payment.
    • PERU SPIRIT ADVENTURE will take all reasonable care in providing to our clients avoidance of accident, illness, and loss of personal property, and will only employ suitably qualified staff. We accept responsibility for the actions of our own employees. Peru Spirit Adventure cannot, however, be responsible for any action of third parties. You are totally responsible for your own personal property and rented equipment.
    • PERU SPIRIT ADVENTURE does not take responsibility for unfavorable weather conditions, natural catastrophe, strikes, accidents, illness, injury, loss of personal ítems, etc. It is the client’s responsibility to carry insurance to cover these types of events. We reserve the right to modify or cancel the program due to any of the unforeseen conditions listed above.
    • In extreme cases when the “Inca Trail to Machu Picchu” is declared closed for safety reasons, Peru Spirit Adventure will replace your trek with an alternative trek.


    • We strongly suggest spending time at high altitude (above 3000 meters / 9842 feet)- in Cusco or another high altitude area for a minimum of 2- 4 days before undertaking your trip. This is in order to minimize the possible effects of altitude sickness. By drinking plenty of fluids, adding sugar to your drinks, eating food high in carbohydrates, avoiding cigarettes, alcohol, and drinking coca tea (ancient traditional leaf) will help your body acclimatize.
    • We recommend you arrive in Cusco 48 hours or more before trek departure because occasionally we need to leave earlier than scheduled in case of strikes or other events out of our control (see ‘Force Majeure’ section below)


    You accept and grant to Peru Spirit Adventure – Tour Operator the right to use your images, photos, and videos that show or describe during your participation in any tour, trekking or adventure, in any advertising of any type, without payment of any additional consideration.

    Thanks again for choosing us and we look forward to seeing you in Cusco!
