Lovely views of the valley, so much physical work has gone into this area and great to see you can still appreciate the work done here. Certainly worth the stop here to wander and take in the views.

Visited this part of Peru in May 2017. It was stunningly beautiful and one of my favourite parts of my trip to Peru. A must see before you visit Machu Picchu.

it is a nice trip with charming villages and colorful Inca people. Watch out the market days, these are very colorful and the people are not so awkward to tourists as in other places close by Mach Picchu
