Jour 1 : Cusco – Chinchero – Maras – Moray – Cusco
Départ de votre hôtel pour un voyage en voiture jusqu’au village andin de Chinchero connu pour sa coopérative de tisserandes qui ont su conserver l’héritage textile de leurs ancêtres et le transmettre aux nouvelles générations. Dans la plupart des régions du Pérou, la tradition textile s’est perdue et les gens utilisent des toiles synthétiques. A Chinchero, les textiles traditionnels sont faits à base de laine d’alpaga, de lama, de mouton et la laine est transformée à la main. L’art de tisser s’est conservé grâce aux efforts de la tisserande Nilda Callañaupa, une entrepreneuse qui a eu une grande influence dans sa communauté et dans toute la région de Cusco pour avoir encouragé les gens à maintenir leurs traditions ancestrales. De Chinchero, direction Moray où les Incas ont construit une série de terrasses agricoles en amphithéâtre creusées dans des petits cirques naturels (150 m de profondeur). Chaque niveau reproduit toute une série de microclimats se trouvant dans plusieurs endroits de l’ancien empire inca. Durant leur règne, ce centre de recherches agronomiques a aidé au développement de nouvelles cultures pour une meilleure résistance et un meilleur rendement. Le village de Maras est situé tout près de Moray. Les salines de Maras ont été exploitées depuis l’époque pré-inca. Cette série de bassins, où l’eau salée provenant d’un ruisseau souterrain s’évapore pour produire le sel, offre aux visiteurs une vue photogénique unique avec des superficies blanches et plates qui contrastent avec le paysage vert et vertical qui les entoure. Notre guide expliquera l’importance de ces anciennes salines pour l’économie locale. Après le déjeuner dans un restaurant local, retour à Cusco en transport privé. Arrivée à la tombée de la nuit.

Départ en train de Cusco ou de la Vallée Sacrée des Incas pour un voyage spectaculaire à travers un paysage changeant, passant par des champs fertiles, des villages andins colorés et la forêt de nuage qui entoure la célèbre cité perdue des Incas.

Depuis, la cité a été restaurée offrant un spectacle inoubliable pour les visiteurs venus du monde entier.
 

FAQs - Frequently asked questions

  • What is the best thing to do in cases of altitude sickness?

    Our guides are trained to assist travelers in the event of acute mountain sickness. They can provide an emergency oxygen bottle and first aid kit; however, travelers should carry their own personal medication, such as treatment for headaches or stomach ailments.

  • Will I be met at the airport?

    Yes, if your itinerary includes transfers or you have asked us to pick you up, our staff will be at the airport to meet you and transfer you to your hotel. We can also provide airport transfers at the end of your itinerary.

  • How can I prepare for high altitude?

    The best way to deal with high altitude is by allowing the body time to adapt. We recommend at least one day at altitude with minimal activity, to allow the organism to begin to adjust. During your first days at altitude, your metabolism will be working hard to produce more red blood cells and carry the limited oxygen available around your body more efficiently. Be sure to eat lightly during your first few days at altitude, drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol.

  • Do I need a visa to enter Peru?

    Travelers with a US, UK, Canadian, Australian or New Zealand passport do not need a visa to enter Peru for tourism or business for up to 90 days. For those traveling on another passport, information on visa requirements for Peru is available at http://www.projectvisa.com/visainformation/Peru

  • Should I travel with cash or cards?

    Cash is easy to exchange for local currency, and at popular tourism destinations US dollars are readily accepted.

  • What about payment, do I need to make a deposit?

    After we have confirmed your booking you will need to pay a deposit, the amount of which will depend on the tour you book and the size of your party.

    No vaccinations are mandatory for entering Peru. However, most international travelers choose to vaccinate themselves against hepatitis A, typhoid fever and tetanus.

    At Andean Adventures Peru, we work with experienced local guides, all of whom have graduated in tourism after a 5-year course at a Peruvian university. All our guides speak English and Spanish and are knowledgeable, patient and informative. Guides in other major languages are also available upon request.

  • What kind of weather should I expect?

    Weather in Peru varies according to the geographic region you are traveling in, and also altitude. In the Andean highlands (Cusco, Arequipa and Lake Titicaca), where UV levels are high, daytime temperatures peak at between 15 to 21 Celsius (60 and 70 Fahrenheit), while nighttime temperatures range from 1.1 to 5.5 Celsius (30 to 42 Fahrenheit). During the dry season (from April to October), the weather tends to be clear and sunny. The rainiest months are January and February. In the Amazon basin the hottest and most humid months occur during the wet season (from December to April), with the rainiest months being January and February, although of course it can rain at any time in tropical and subtropical forests. Peru’s desert coast is warm all year round, although Lima and the surrounding coastal belt are usually overcast outside the summer months (January to March). There is almost no rainfall in Lima, but humidity is high. Machu Picchu is situated at around 2400 meters (7875 feet) above sea level in an area of subtropical cloud forest. Daytime temperatures range from 26 to 29 Celsius (80 to 85 Fahrenheit). There is the chance of rain at any time of year. The driest months are May to September.
