view of the Andes above Chincero

The best way to see the ruins of Chinchero, is to go on a local bus from Cusco on a day when they do not run the "sacred valley tour". You can have the ruins to yourself and stare off to some real stunning views of the Andes. The local bus from Cusco to Urumbamba runs through the middle of town. The ruins are on the right , up the hill.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:close to Cusco, good day trip.
  • Cons:If you go on market days it will be crowded
  • In a nutshell:one of the best places in Peru for seeing ruins and meeting local folks
