Pisac is about a one hour drive from the center of Cusco, PE. Well, possibly only 40 minutes if your driver knows the roads with his eyes closed. The roads to Pisac are windy, but the views are spectacular.

The Andes mountains are roaring and in Pisac Valley your jaw will drop at every turn.

The trek did not only feature mountainous views. We saw a variety of animals grazing, plants growing, and water rushing by as at almost every minute.

The Andes of Peru is currently in the rainy season. That being said, every tree is full and the grass is the greenest I’ve ever seen.

Due to the big rains, landslides happen. This used to be part of a bridge and is now clearly a piece of art among the natural world.
