The city has a charm of its own, inviting people to spend several days enjoying what Cusco has to offer.
We pass under the shadow of Salkantay, the Apu of the range, to which the Incas offered up all the fruits of their labours.
Two miles above the Apurimac Gorge stands the imposing fort and town of Choquequirao. Hiram Bingham was brought here by a treasure-hunting provincial official, and so unexpectedly began his adventures in the highlands that led to the discovery of Machu Picchu.
This is a long hike around the biggest mountain in southern Peru, the broad and majestic Ausangate (6384m), and offers glimpses of high altitude wildlife and pastoral people living with their animals, quietly apart from the turmoil of the modern world. We pass ice walls, a glacier, the cascades of a frozen river, and numerous springs of hot and medicinal underground water.
Known for the highway banditry in the area and the infuriating diplomacy of the inhabitants, Vilcabamba became the Sherwood Forest of early colonial Peru until in 1572 when it was penetrated and the Inca captured and killed.
We trace a series of important ruined forts chronicled during the extirpation of theIncas, but not located nor excavated until quite recently.
