An exciting Inca walk that traverses the high Andean plateau of Cusco into the Sacred Valley of the Incas where you will not encounter many tourists. We pass through the Chinchero high mesa toward Lake Piuray. The communities of farmers located along the Piuray lake shore are excellent examples of true Andean traditional living.
