Up and Away in the Heights of Huaraz

_cNXt-dBUkZ4Ywrd6_P32RTnZUknLSXIk6ABkrIujyo

After the high altitudes of Cusco and the Inca Trail, I told myself that I was done with heights for a while. But a few weeks later I found myself back in the mountains, this time in the Northern city of Huaraz. For two days I hiked, rock climbed, enjoyed the Aguas Calientes, and took in the beautiful, stark scenery.

Exploring Peru’s Sacred Valley

3jX398t8Ur8j7GyOB8xLPgxRavzkznIoRTAM85fkC-QPeru’s Sacred Valley is a special place in so many ways. The site of so many Incan ruins, it holds the remains of a civilization, adding the sense that we were trespassing on something special. The valley is also a fascinating look at the more traditional lives of many native Quechuans, most of whom are more than happy to welcome visitors into their villages for an up close peek at their way of life. Finally, the breathtaking views of this region are hard to capture on film, both from the effects of the area’s altitude and the soaring peaks of the surrounding mountains.
