Sacred Valley In-A-Day 2
The Sacred Valley & Animals
This itinerary is best for people who want to see the Sacred Valley and learn about South American camelids like alpacas, llamas, guanacos & vicuñas. See Sacred Valley In-A-Day 1 for an itinerary focused on textiles, culture & archeology.
Have an early breakfast in Cusco, then leave by 8:30 to drive to Pisac. Stop at Awana Kancha to see the camelids. Try to arrive at Awana Kancha at 9am and leave there at 10am.
From there, drive to Pisac (above), then up to the archeological site. Plan to be at Pisac 11am to 1pm, then go down to the town of Pisac for lunch. You can eat at the market or at one of several great restaurants in town.
Around 3pm leave Pisac and drive an hour and a half to Ollantaytambo. You’ll have 4:30pm to 6pm in the Ollantaytambo archeological site. Then you can stay the night there if you’re going to Machu Picchu the next day or drive an hour and a half back to Cusco.
You can do this on your own with a full-day taxi or even with public transportation. Most travel agencies have a tour like this or you can request a custom tour.
