The history-rich Sacred Valley of the Incas, located between Cusco and the Machu Picchu Citadel, gives travelers a good chance to acclimate to the high altitudes of the Andes. Here, green fields line the roads and small villages of indigenous people add color to the dramatic mountain scenery. Local markets, including the popular ones held at Chincero and Pisac offer an abundance of endearing folk art and local crafts.
