The Source is located a scenic 75-minute drive from Cusco and its renowned archaeological sites such as the Sacsayhuaman temple and fortress. UNESCO World Heritage Site, Machu Picchu, is relatively close by. Nearby local villages offer opportunities to admire Spanish-influenced architecture and artistry, while the mountains cradling the Sacred Valley provide the perfect setting to trek among spectacular scenery and center yourself.
Just a short flight from Lima, the capital of Peru, Cusco is the largest tourist destination in the country due to the breathtaking views, ancient archaeological sites, unique heritage and of course, Machu Picchu. Cusco was the site of the historic capital of the Incan Empire and was declared a World Heritage Site, along with Machu Picchu, in 1983 by UNESCO.
After leaving Cusco en route to Machu Picchu you will pass through the Sacred Valley, the heart of the Incan Empire. Filled with archaeological sites and snow-capped peaks, it is the perfect blend of natural beauty and man-made wonders. There are many sights to see as you make your way through the valley including Pisaq’s archaeological sites and local market, the Lares hot springs, Maras salineras, the archeological sites of Moray and Ollantaytambo, and many more. And The Source is conveniently situated in the heart of it all.
Most people come to the Sacred Valley with the ultimate goal of visiting Machu Picchu, one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. Built in the 15th century upon jagged peaks at 7,970 ft above sea level, it is the most visited tourist attraction in Peru and the iconic site of the Inca civilization. Truly, no trip to Peru is complete without a visit to Machu Picchu.
