A nice daytrip with base Cusco is to Pisaq. Pisaq is the name of the village at the bottom of the valley as well as the name of the Inka ruins above in the mountains. All we knew was that the Inka ruins are worth a visit, but we didn´t expect such a huge area covered by this ruins. A taxi brought us to the top parking lot of this site and it took us 3 hours to get back to the village – and in all this time we were within the ruins. It is absolutely amazing how much effort was spent to erect this. And also to live and work there must have been hard. At the end of the day Eva´s and my knee hurt because of the steep stairs. Some people say this place is more impressive than Machupicchu – we will see….
