A visit to Cusco will take you high into the mountains of Peru. It is located at over 11,000 feet above sea level and close by to the breathtaking Urubamba Valley of the Andes. Long ago, Cusco was the capital of the ancient Inca Empire. Although no longer in existence, the evidence of this culture can be seen in Cusco through the people, their customs and the great array of fascinating monuments and architecture, most notably Machu Picchu. This popular touristic site rises almost 8,000 feet above sea level and is still largely intact. The city of Cusco itself is a mountain town filled with colorful markets, clothing and foods that reflect the Andean people. If there in the winter (beginning in June), don't forget to bring warm clothes as temperatures fall well below what you would expect . Accommodation in the city is amongst the most authentic in Latin America, with the absence of hotel chains Cusco guesthouses are the most popular option for visitors. Those hoping to go further off the beaten track should also try an apartment in Cusco, and live amongst the real natives of this ancient and fascinating town.
