Town of Ollantaytambo
Ollantaytambo is a town that spreads out at the foot of the ruins of the Inca Empire. Ollantaytambo has a station where the tourist train to Machu Picchu departs, and is well known as a stopover point for touring the ruins. It is located where the Patacancha River flows into the Urubamba River, and has been inhabited since the pre-Inca period. It is a simple but beautiful town with cobblestones and masonry walls handed down from the Inca period, and it is a perfect place to stay while visiting the ruins, as there are many hotels, restaurants, and other facilities for tourists.
In the mountains of the Andes Mountains on the outskirts of Cusco lies the Urubamba Valley, also known as the "Sacred Valley". The colorful landscape surrounding the Urubamba River, the source of the Amazon, is dotted with small villages that coexist with the ruins of the Inca Empire. This is an area full of charms that you will want to take the time to explore. You can enjoy the countryside that has been around since the Inca period, see the beautiful ruins, and buy folk crafts and food in the bustling markets to experience the lives of the local people.
