I show you some of the best things to do in Cusco and the Cusco region with its many Inca sites and beautiful multi day treks in this episode from Peru in partnership with G Adventures. ➸ My Peru Guide: https://www.back-packer.org/backpacking-peru/ ➸ Lares Trek with G Adventures: https://www.back-packer.org/lares_g MY CAMERA EQUIPMENT ▸ Cam1:Sony RX 100 V http://amzn.to/2qGeZSK ▸ Cam2:Sony A7 II http://amzn.to/1Gfj8MU ▸ Joby Gorillapod http://amzn.to/1CMyE0b ▸ Audio Recorder: Zoom H2n http://amzn.to/1FFVSt4 ▸ SDHC Memory Card http://amzn.to/1ygZzWD ▸ Waterproof Memory Card Case http://amzn.to/1FFWLCb ▸ Backpack Osprey Farpoint 40 http://amzn.to/1ceMOlo To produce this video I spent almost 2 weeks in the Cusco region in order to provide a wide selection of activities I recommend doing on your trip to Peru. Because it was my second time after my first visit in 2012 I chose to introduce an alternative Machu Picchu experience with the Lares Trek - for this part I worked together with G Adventures and decided to extend my stay to do all the other things independently. Cusco and the area around is full of history and beautiful landscape which makes it worth it to spend about 1-2 weeks in the region. For your time you should definitely take on some day hikes or go for one of the multi day hikes which end up taking you to Machu Picchu. What many don’t know: a multi day hike to go to Machu Picchu is the most budget friendly option if you look at the price-value ratio! The things to do in Cusco I covered here is a selection of my personal favorites and offers a good mix of historic sites, hikes (partially in very high altitude), food experiences and panoramic views which will leave you speechless. Moreover I also focussed on some community projects which are connected to G Adventures and their NGO Planeterra. Things to do in Cusco featured in this episode: - Old town of Cusco / Cuzco - Saksaywaman / Sacsayhuaman - La Cusquenita (restaurant) - Barrio San Blas - Barrio Ceviche (restaurant) - San Pedro market - Jack’s Cafe (restaurant) - Rainbow mountain / Vinicunca - Sacred Valley (part of G Adventures Lares Trek tour) - Pisaq - Ollantaytambo - Parwa restaurant - Lares trek - train to Aguas Calientes - Machu Picchu - Humantay lake (first day of Salkantay trek) About my Cooperation with G Adventures For many years I was searching for a suitable partner who offers tours in South America which align with my style of traveling as well as my values. After many meetings I’m glad I found this partner with G Adventures who offer many adventurous tour packages for travelers like me…but who also care about the environment and local communities in order to execute sustainable tourism. I forced this cooperation because I like the products and the philosophy of the company. Nevertheless all opinions, recommendations and views are my own. — MY TRAVEL EQUIPMENT ▸ insurance http://www.back-packer.org/worldnomads_versicherung ▸ packing list http://www.back-packer.org/patagonia-packing-list-trekking/ ▸ Online Language Course http://www.back-packer.org/babbel_eng MY HOTEL & HOSTEL RECOMMENDATIONS ➸ http://www.back-packer.org/best-hostels-and-hotels/ DISCLAIMER: All Links provided marked with „▸“ are Affiliate Links for products, which means that if you click on one of the product links, I’ll receive a small commission (but the price for you stays the same).

Situated in the Peruvian Andes is the mountainous town of Cusco. Can't catch your breath? The high elevation causes altitude sickness for most. Cusco is full of life and rich with culture, for many it serves as a gateway to the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu but it also has a lot to explore.

Once we arrived and started carrying our bags the first signs of altitude sickness were showing and we had to watch those signs closely, not over exerting ourselves. Cusco is a stunning city is surrounded by the Andes Mountain Range and the size of the mountains makes the city of 500,000 feel more like a mountain village. With over 500 years of culture there are plenty of things to peak ones interest including markets, churches and ancient ruins nearby. We set out to see the city at night and it started with Fil joining a dance with locals in a city square. We quickly found out that the Historical Center of town we were staying in is built on side of a mountain there is no flat ground, it is always stairs and that is a big factor as we were all experiencing altitude sickness. After huffing and puffing our way back to the hostel we found the computer charger was fried no longer worked. This was a huge blow because it is needed everyday to transfer camera footage from multiple cameras. We went to sleep wondering if our Earth Unraveled Season 1 would end short. Cusco, often spelled Cuzco ( Spanish ), is the capital of the Cusco Region and Cusco Province, located in southeastern Peru near the Urubamba Valley of the Andes mountain range. It is a fascinating city that was once the capital of the entire Inca Empire. For many tourists, it is the gateway if you are traveling to Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley or any other Inca sites in the region. Layers of history can be seen from the spanish colonial buildings to the ruins surrounding Cusco such as Saksaywaman and Sacsayhuaman, the site of ancient battle involving the Inca. At 3,400m / 11,200 ft Cusco presents altitude sickness for the majority of people who live at a much lower elevation and it played a major role in our exploration.

The documentary "The Living Stones of Sacsayhuaman" At the beginning of July 2012 the Ministry of Culture of Peru invited a group of Russian geophysicists to research the issues dealing with the soil of the archaeological complex of Sacsayhuaman. In the course of completing this task there were collected interesting historic and archaeological data and a substantial amount of photo and video materials that were provided the basis for production of this movie. http://www.arcanafactor.org/ https://www.facebook.com/ArcanaFactor email@example.com WebMoney Z315009897188 R246207051494
Cusco was long an important center of indigenous people. It was the capital of the Inca Empire (13th century-1532). Many believe that the city was planned as an effigy in the shape of a puma, a sacred animal.
