Exploring Peru's Sacred Valley

2013-11-01-6fbleeqvppyye6bsv55wbi_uck3nhx6f1fz_r6coi10.jpg
Peru's Sacred Valley is a special place in so many ways. The site of so many Incan ruins, it holds the remains of a civilization, adding the sense that we were trespassing on something special. The valley is also a fascinating look at the more traditional lives of many native Quechuans, most of whom are more than happy to welcome visitors into their villages for an up close peek at their way of life. Finally, the breathtaking views of this region are hard to capture on film, both from the effects of the area's altitude and the soaring peaks of the surrounding mountains.
