(Ollantaytambo Town and Patacancha village)
Our Majestic Valley tour starts by collecting you from your Hotel. We then have 1 hour and half van ride to Ollantaytambo town which is about 68 kms. (47.2 miles) northwest of Cusco; its altitude is 2,700 mts. (8,856 ft). It was a Royal estate of the Inca Pachacuteq, which stands at a strategic spot, enclosed in hills that hide some of the most impressive ruins from Inca and Pre-Inca times.
We then visit The town which is one of the best surviving Inca settlements still inhabited in blocks called Canchas. One Cancha housed several families.
Following the Patakancha rivulet upstream are large amounts of Incan farming terraces that are always in use, many of them still maintain their aqueducts. Advancing by the trail on the left bank of the rivulet is Pumamarka (Puma's town), it is 20 minutes away from Ollantaytambo. Its altitude is 3,600 mts. (11,810 ft). That was surely an important village in Incan times.
Higher up is Patackancha over 3,700 mts. (12,000 ft). It is an Andean community with its original life-style reamaining intact in tradition, costume, and religion. A definate must for those interested in seeing native communities.
Continuing, we will talk with the communers to learn their tradition, custom and life style. Afterwards, we will return to Cusco, we ended up leaving you in your Hotel.
