Urubamba Province : parcs et nature

Les meilleures recommandations des habitants en matière de sites naturels

Historic Site
“It is one of the most famous Inca archeological site, because it is part of the 7 new wonders of the world, which is a 15th-century Inca citadel situated on a mountain ridge 2,430 metres (7,970 ft) above sea level. It is located in the Cusco Region, above the Sacred Valley, which is 80 kilometres (50 mi) northwest of Cuzco and through which the Urubamba River flows.”

Bus Station
“Machu Picchu was the sanctuary citadel of the Inca Culture. Built so that only a few members of the royal, priestly and warrior castes of the Inca empire could worship the Sun and the Moon in the most sacred of the precincts of the Empire. Access to the sanctuary was a secret even at the time of the Inca Empire and only those chosen by the Inca (the ruler over all the rulers of the Inca empire) could enter for certain periods of time. It is a place that has no comparison anywhere in the world and the main reason why all travelers arrive from different parts to visit Cusco (I recommend you buy the entrance tickets to the sanctuary in advance of your arrival. The transport package (train plus bus) and stay (hotel) in the town of Aguas Calientes (the nearest town before entering the natural and cultural reserve of Machi Picchu) can be acquired upon arrival in the city)”

“Don't miss this often overlooked santuary off the train tracks between Hidroelectrica and Aguas Calientes. The trail goes through a botanical garden and then turns into something like a rainforest before you get to a tall waterfall. Cheap and worth it! There's a cafe and hotel outside the entrance, but it all feels very secluded.”

“The main plaza is the meeting point for the urubambinos. It's a nice place to enjoy a local ice-cream and see the people passing by. Also the local market is next to it.”

Scenic Lookout
“This hike or mountain bike is for the adventurous only. Hitch a ride on a colectivo to Pachar (or bike 30 minutes down the Ciclovia). Hike/Bike up the road about 4 km and then it's a steep switchback dirt road (1-2 hrs) until the community of Socma. Once you reach the town, keep hiking up the path for about 45 minutes until you get the waterfalls. You can ask the locals for the "Cascada" or "Cataratas" and they will point you. You can also access the falls from Ollantaytambu which is more scenic (but longer if you don't have a bike!).”

“Lots of good tourist restaurants and places to get your laundry done. I highly recommend La Esquina restaurant for lunch; the "build your own salad bowl" option is marvelous. ”
