Explore the greatest Inca city
Cusco, the Imperial capital city of the massive Inca Empire of the Incas.
Scattered through the region of Cusco this architectural treasure trove is home to the minority Aymara tribe who, call it “Qusqu” and the many Quechua speaking tribes who call their home “Qosqo”. The ancient language Quechua was the main language of the Incas and is still prevalent in many indigenous communities in the Southwestern parts of the Andes. These communities have mantained ancient forms of living, such as natural farming and the use of llamas and alpacas, with very little influence from modern life. Additionally, they are renowned for their vibrant, traditional garments that they weave.
The central Andes has a wealth of hidden gems waiting to be explored by a curious adventurer. Its mostly known for its world-famous Inca Trail hike to the 7th world wonder, the majestic Machu Picchu Citadel. Also making its presence felt is the newly discovered (only in 2015) Rainbow Mountain. This enourmous peak has striking and vibrant all natural colors that will leave you astonished.
The Inca Empire was the largest empire in pre-Columbian America. They left behind a legacy of most intricate road-networks, which connect every corner of their massive territory. Along the different trails through the Andes are many archeological sites that stand out because of their monumental architecture, innovative agriculture practices and advanced engineering practices. They are known as the most advanced civilization of their time, working with very little tools and building in the most challenging locations in the world. Each trek has its own unique features, ranging from stunning turquoise lakes in Lake Humantay on the Salkantay Trek, to secluded indigenous villages with locals still living a very authentic and ancient lifestyle on the Lares Trek. Challenge your hiking capabilities to the most underrated and hidden archeological site of Choquequirao. This archeological site is 3 times the size of Machu Picchu and more of it is still being excavated from the dense jungle that surrounds it. It has very little annual foot traffic, so there is absolutely nothing touristic about it.
Cuzco is also a breath away from the massive Amazonian Rainforest, which covers over two thirds of the entire country of Peru. This is a great way to connect with nature and experience the most comprehensive bio-diversity in the world. Even though, they are surrounded by mountains, they have a thriving agricultural sector located in the Sacred Valley. This gastronomy capital with fusion and neo-Andean food is usually made from fresh organic local ingredients with a mix of international ingredients.
Modern Cusco´s tourism sector has been the backbone of this region since the 2000´s. It brings in over a million visitors a year and, pre-covid, contributing over $1.2 billion to the national economy. The scale at which tourism is growing in the city, has made large structural changes to its inhabitants. Firstly, it is transitioning from a small city, to something that’s more metropolitan and has also seen growth to its expat community. It has a vibrant nightlife and has modern amenities, like high speed internet, modern apartments etc. A big tourist hub, known for its street markets with inexpensive fresh produce and arts and crafts. The beguiling blend of cobblestone streets, colonial period architecture and that unmistakable Peruvian street spirit, Cusco’s designation as the gateway to the beautiful Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu simply further underscores its enduring popularity.
