It's so beautiful that you can spend all of your day there. The time passes so fast that before you understand it, is time to go. I wish I had more time here.

This place is at the terraces. This place is the place of the sun, where you have terraces above with Urubamba Valley view beneath. Full of history and spectacular view to the valley.

We were treated here to great views of the Urubamba Valley, llamas grazing on the terraces (some of the best photos I got in Peru) and one heck of a lot of stairs. Be careful if you're going down these stairs as part of the...More
