1.-THREE CANYONS OF SUYKUTAMBO
225 km south of Cusco are the Three Canyons of Suykutambo, where the erosion of wind and water has formed three perfect alleys protected by giant volcanic earth walls. Surrounded by forests of queuñas and tholas, the majestic landscape changes every hour thanks to the shadows cast by the massifs.

The most impressive water fall in the Sacred Valley. If your plan is to know the charming town of Ollantaytambo, then we recommend you make a stop along the way to know the Perolniyoc Waterfall.
