Cusco South Valley in Luxury
Peru Eco Expeditons’ exclusive Cusco South Valley in Luxury excursion showcases the architectural wonders of the different time periods that developed in Cusco Valley – Pre-Incan, Incan & Spanish Colonialism. The day will begin with a visit to Andahuaylillas Church, which is referred to as the “Sistine Chapel of South America”. Guests will marvel at the interior masterpiece that was created within this church. The tour will continue on to Pikillaqta, a fascinating archaeological site that was built by the Pre-Incan culture of the Wari-Chanca. Guests will explore a small museum and then hike around the expansive site. At the conclusion of the visit, guests will be transported to the shores of Huacarpay Lake for a cheese & cracker platter overlooking the lake. This lake is renowned for its various bird species, even showcasing the Andean flamingo at certain times of the year. The tour will then continue to Tipon Archaeological Site, which is one of the most impressive Incan sites in the Cusco area. This site is renowned for its beautiful canals, fountains & master stonemasonry.
In the countryside near Tipon Archaeological Site lies Villa Tipon, a private farmhouse perched on a mountainside overlooking Cusco Valley. Guests will have exclusive access to this beautiful, authentic villa to delve into traditional Andean culture & cuisine. This unique and wonderful retreat is set in the midst of awe-inspiring mountains in the tranquil countryside. Upon arrival, guests will be ushered to a welcoming ceremony where an Andean shaman will conduct a traditional blessing to Pachamama (Mother Earth).
Step out for a walk and guests may be lucky enough to see the largest hummingbird in the world (Patagonia gigas – Giant hummingbird) as well as several other species. Guests can also enjoy a stroll through the villa’s incredible gardens full of vividly colored flowers from different areas of the world.
After exploring the grounds of the villa a delicious Peruvian lunch will be served, made fresh daily in the villa’s kitchen.
