Cusco City

Cusco is the high mountain capital of the Incas, one of the most ancient and unusual cities in the world. Archaeologists say that here in the Andes, at an altitude of 3,500 meters above sea level, people live more than 3 thousand years.

During the heyday of the empire, the city resembled a running puma. In the colonial period, the Spanish conquistadors changed the image of Cusco. In the colonial period, the Spanish conquistadors changed the image of Cusco. They destroyed the Inca temples, building Catholic buildings on their foundations. Inca culture mixed with Spanish. And this mix still can be seen in the city — along with the colonial buildings of the Spaniards, Inca statues of Inca Pachacuti, the ruins of the granite Palace of the Supreme Inca, Inca masonry in the monastery of Santo Domingo, built in the Baroque style over the ruins of the Coricancha temple, are preserved. In 1950, an earthquake damaged part of the colonial buildings, and in sight were the ancient walls built by the Incas, which can be seen today.

The City of Cusco is considered an open-air museum of the Incan civilization and is fully listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can trace the history of this place from the birth of the Inca empire to the end of the colonial period in the Archaeological Museum of Cusco, which is also called the Museo Inka.

Although half a million people live in Cusco, the locals are engaged in agriculture, make clothes from llama and alpaca wool and wear national costumes every day, and not in order to entertain tourists, who are more on the streets than local residents.


Urubamba Valley

The Sacred Valley of the Incas, the birthplace of their civilization, and the most significant place in Peru. It is located between Cusco and Machu Picchu, along the Urubamba River.

There are archaeological sites: agricultural and salt terraces, small towns, temples, fortresses and ceremonial complexes. The archaeological complex of the City of Pisac on the ridge of Vilcabamba, it, like other Inca settlements, resembles one of the sacred birds — partridge. It is famous for the observatory and the ruins of an Indian fortress that have survived over the city.

The 43-kilometer Inca road to Machu Picchu passes through the Urubamba Valley — it is the busiest mountain road in South America. Tourists and unprepared travelers are not recommended to go here unaccompanied — this can be dangerous.

At the time of the Incas, there were droughts in the neighboring regions, and the valley along the Urubamba River was characterized by fertility and a mild climate. Taking this as an advantage, the Incas built horizontal agricultural terraces on the mountain slopes. Corn, potatoes, cereals, peanuts, fruits, tobacco and coca were cultivated here, which was of great ritual importance.

Due to the fertility of the valley, the Incas were able to free part of their people from agriculture, to develop the nearby territories and establish a large empire, which was located on the territory of modern Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Chile. At the end of its existence, its area was 2 million square kilometers.

Belmond Hiram Bingham

Belmond Hiram Bingham — this train is named after an American explorer who claimed to have discovered the remains of the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu in 1911, although there is some evidence of earlier expeditions by British and German missionaries and engineers.

The train travels from Cusco to Machu Picchu along a winding mountain road along the Urubamba River. Meals made with local products are served on board. Depending on the season, you will be offered: trout in a salty crust, Confit Duck Legs in traditional Peruvian sauce, amaranth caviar and Peruvian pisco — grape moonshine.

On the way, the instrumental Peruvian group will perform popular songs of the peoples of the world. For example, for guests from Russia, the ensemble plays “Ochi Chyorniy”.

You can travel in one of the two dining cars, a bar-car or a panoramic car. Outside, Belmond Hiram Bingham is painted in blue and gold colors. Inside, they are decorated in the style of Pullman Cars of the 1920s. Decorations made of copper, brass, polished light wood, soft chairs and antique fittings convey the charm and elegance of the time.


Machu Picchu

The city of ancient America, located at an altitude of 2,450 meters above sea level — the last citadel of the great Inca civilization and one of the most mysterious sights of Peru.

Archaeologists believe that the city was founded by the ruler of the Incas in 1440 as an imperial residence and up to 1,200 people lived in it. However, neither the year of construction, nor the purpose of construction, nor the number of inhabitants, nor even the real name of the "Lost City" are known for certain. A mystery remains how it happened that it existed for several decades after the decline of the empire. And then in 1532 all the inhabitants of Machu Picchu mysteriously disappeared and the city fell into disrepair. Machu Picchu is the only Inca stronghold untouched by the Spaniards. The conquistadors simply did not reach the mountainous inaccessible area. The war bypassed the citadel.

There are about 200 buildings in the city: temples, residences, warehouses and other buildings for public needs. They are made up of machined stone blocks that fit tightly together. The main religious buildings are The Temple of the Sun, The Temple of the Three Windows and The Main Temple. The unique building system demonstrates the power of engineering in ancient civilization. To look at the city and the surrounding landscape from above, as well as take photographs, you need to climb to the top of Huayna Picchu.

For 400 years this city was forgotten and remained in desolation. It was discovered by American professor Hiram Bingham in 1911. In 2007, Machu Picchu was awarded the title of New World Wonder. After being included in the UNESCO World Heritage List, it became a center of mass tourism. The city became so popular that in 2011 the number of visitors was limited to 2,500 tourists a day.

Moray City

A city in Peru, located in the sacred valley of the Incas at an altitude of 3,500 meters above sea level, 50 kilometers from Cusco. It is famous for its round terraces resembling an amphitheater. The masonry made more than 500 years ago is preserved. Terraces on the slopes of the mountains are typical of the Incan empire, but these concentric ones are unique — there is no such ideal round shape anywhere else.

It is not known for certain why the Incas used this amphitheater. A common version is for farming. More specifically, as an agricultural laboratory. The depth of the largest terrace is 30 meters, which creates a temperature difference between the upper and lower parts of 15 degrees. Empirically, they selected the best conditions for growing various crops — potatoes, corn, coca, maize. This method is now common in China, Indochina, Indonesia and the Philippines.

Another version — in a round amphitheater, representatives of ancient civilization held religious ceremonies, but there is no historical evidence for this.

Coricancha Temple

Coricancha Temple is the richest Inca temple. Built in honor of the highest deity of the ancient empire — the Sun God Inti. At the time of the empire, religious rituals were held here and the mummies of noble Incas were kept.

Translated from the language of the Quechua South American Indians, the name means “golden temple”, because its facade was once lined with gold plates, and the walls inside are inlaid with precious stones. Inside the temple a golden statue of the god Inti stood, a large solar disk and many other items made of gold and silver. The Incas gave part of the treasures to the Spaniards as a ransom for the Supreme Inca.

On the ruins of the Temple of the Sun, the Spanish conquerors built the church of Santo Domingo, but the Inca foundation is still preserved. The ancient masonry was exposed after the earthquake in 1950, which damaged the Spanish buildings, which made the masonry erected more than 500 years ago visible. Having damaged the walls of the Spanish cathedral, the earthquake did not harm the foundation of the Coricancha temple on which this cathedral was built. Probably the reason is the strength of the polygonal blocks and the laying of the base.


San Pedro Central Market

San Pedro is the central market in Cusco is located in the Centro Historico district, a 10-minute walk from the main square, Plaza da Armas. It is worth getting here to see the local people, their way of life, customs, culture and traditions.

Puno City

Puno is a city on the shores of Lake Titicaca, in the southeast of Peru. It is located at an altitude of 3,860 meters above sea level. From the opposite side of the lake, Puno is surrounded by mountains. Due to this location, the climate in the city is alpine-tropical. This means that there is no strong heat here, and at night the temperature can drop below 0 °C.

Puno has preserved the rich cultural heritage of Aboriginal Indians and Spanish conquerors, so it is called the cultural and folk capital of Peru. Locals speak little Spanish, follow ancient traditions and customs, so here you can plunge into the culture and life of the indigenous population. Local songs and dances are famous throughout South America. They can be seen as one of the festivals that take place regularly.

The city has buildings and architectural monuments of the colonial era and Inca times. The attention should be paid to the Cathedral, the monument of the first Inca Manco Capac, the Arch of Deustua, which was built in memory of the liberators of the country from the Spanish invaders and the Tower of Sillustani — the ancient buildings of pre-Incan times.

To get acquainted with the native life of the local Indians you need to go to one of the artificial Islands of Lake Titicaca. The descendants of the Uros Indians live there, who build houses from cane, move between the islands by boats and sacredly honor the traditions of their ancestors.

Puno is located 390 kilometers from Cusco — 6 hours by car. You can also get in 55 minutes by plane to the nearest airport in the city of Juliaca, located 50 kilometers from Puno.


Lake Titicaca

The largest in terms of fresh water reserves and the second largest in area — larger only the lake-lagoon Maracaibo in Venezuela. Titicaca is also the world's highest navigable lake. It is located at an altitude of 3,812 meters above sea level, surface area — 8,300 square kilometers. The border of Peru and Bolivia passes through Titicaca.

Around the lake and on the islands there are the settlements of the Aymara and Quechua peoples.

The attraction of the lake is the man-made reed floating islands of the Uros Tribe, which did not submit to the Incas. Reed, growing abundantly along the shores of Titicaca, provides the Indians with almost everything necessary. From it they make not only their islands, but also houses, boats, clothes, food and medicine.

In addition to man-made, there are enough natural islands on the lake, the largest of which is called the Island of the Sun. According to legend, the respected Inka God of the Sun, Inti was born here. The most notable objects on the island are the sacred "Fountain of Youth" and the Chincana stone labyrinth.

There is a myth about Wanaku — a city lost at the bottom of Titicaca, in which the Incas hid gold from the Spanish conquerors. Jacques Yves Cousteau, inspired by the story of treasures, flew to explore the bottom of the lake. He did not find gold, discovered only ancient pottery. There is no other evidence that the Incas hid gold at the bottom of the lake. But divers and archaeologists discovered at a depth of 30 meters a stone terrace, fragments of walls and sculptures. The estimated age of the finds is 1,500 years.


Titilaka Hotel

Titilaka is a boutique hotel located on the edge of a secluded private peninsula, surrounded on three sides by the waters of Lake Titicaca, 45 kilometers from the City of Puno. It is noteworthy that three quarters of the staff are local residents from the surrounding villages — are dark-skinned Peruvians in national costumes. All of them have been trained to provide the proper level of service for guests.

In the modern interior of the rooms national details are added — textile panels, pillows, bamboo tables and chairs, products of local craftsmen. The rooms are decorated in bright colors with bright accents. The hotel has a total of 18 rooms, each with a view of the lake. You can also watch Titicaca from the panoramic restaurant, which offers delicacies of Peruvian cuisine.

You can take a bike from the hotel and drive around or along the coast. For example, you can reach the city of Puno in 2 hours. For guests who are not used to the Alpine climate, the rooms and transport of the hotel are equipped with oxygen supply systems.

You can have breakfast, lunch and dinner at the restaurant, in the room or on the outside terrace. The menu includes simple food made from local products. The cuisine is mainly Peruvian — trout from Lake Titicaca with local spices, beef, alpaca and guinea pig meat.

Uros Floating Islands

Uros — floating islands located on the Peruvian side of Lake Titicaca. These are 42 floating islands, woven from reed totora, 1.5 to 12 meters thick, depending on the destination and area. The sizes are different: small ones, with a diameter of up to 30 meters, where one or several families live, large ones turn into real villages.

In the 13th century, Uros lived on the coast, and then created artificial shelters in the middle of the lake, so they did not submit to the Incas. On their floating islands, they could sail away from the coast with their families, homes and all belongings, as soon as the saw danger. The rest of the time, the islands remain in place, tied to reeds, logs, large stones. Now only a few hundred Uros live on the islands, the rest settled on land.

The inhabitants of the islands lead a traditional Indian way of life — they are engaged in fishing and handicrafts, they cook food on a fire piled over stones, they go between the islands and land by boat, which they themselves make from the same reed totora. They eat the same plant as food, make sails, clothes, dishes, and even medicines from it.

Reed in the water after a while begins to gain moisture and rot, so every three months the inhabitants of the island are forced to cover the island with dry stalks of reeds, and even more often in the rainy season. When the reed dries, under the weight of a person it begins to break, absorb water and rot, so new stems must be added constantly. On average, one island is suitable for life for 30 years.

Floating islands are a popular tourist attraction. Travelers from all over the world come here to see the life, customs and lifestyle of the Indian tribe. The reed surface of the islands is quite soft, so you can walk on them barefoot, like real Indians.

This is one of the most popular natural attractions of the capital of Bolivia.

Uyuni Salt Flat

Uyuni is a salt flat with an area of 10,582 km2 — this is comparable to the area of Sydney. It is located in the South-West of Bolivia at an altitude of 3,656 meters above sea level and is covered with a salt crust of 10 meters. The salt flat formed on the site of a dried salt lake. About 25 thousand tons of salt are mined here annually. In addition, it contains half of the world's lithium reserves.

In sunny weather, the salt flat shines so that it is painful to look at it without sunglasses. Sights of Uyuni are Fishing Island with giant ten-meter cactuses and the Forest of Stones — a concentration of stone statues created by wind and water.

In the rainy season, from November to March, the salt flat is covered with a layer of water up to 30 centimeters. In this period, you can observe an amazing mirror effect here — clouds float in the sky and under your feet.


Uyuni City

Uyuni — in the past the largest railway center of Bolivia, today — a small city with a population of about 15,000 people at an altitude of 3,600 meters above sea level. With the decline of the mining industry in the 40s, the railway stopped working, trains threw near the city. Now the “locomotive cemetery” with centennial locomotives is a landmark of Uyuni.

We talk about the organization of travel and projects without embellishment. We share our impressions about the region, cuisine, hotels and contractors. Texts are accompanied by personal photos and videos. All materials are published only with the consent of the customer.

Winter 2019 — remove the unnecessary!
For a month we had to organize an extreme Olympiad for programmers, a test drive of Cordiant tires and a family adventure in the taiga. I won't tell about each project separately, as I usually do all the applications of this season intersected and followed one after another. These three events are in one report.
Lake Baikal
Summer is a small life
During the festive evening in honor of the birthday, we should have a concert of a famous artist on the shore of Lake Baikal. In the report, we conducted a step-by-step review of the event, starting with the signing a contract with the artist, ending with an analysis of the mistakes and the options for solving them in the future.
Lake Baikal
Spring Baikal for two
Our task was to organize an individual trip for two, to show the most interesting places of the spring Baikal with sum limit of 5,000 dollars. Before calculating and approving the program, we called to all the hotels and transport to make sure that they were available for the right dates. There were no rooms in the hotel, snowmobiles were occupied, the biosphere reserve did not work — holidays on March 8.
Lake Baikal
The course to the North
We planned to cross Lake Baikal by SUVs on ice and make the show of this. We started to prepare for half a year — re-equipped cars, picked up the equipment and the team. During the week of travel, we covered about 1,000 km, saw the nature of Baikal, tested the SUVs and shot a film about it.
Lake Baikal
33 shamanic curses
Even before the start of the tour, problems began to arise: the engine had been torn off by the airboat, the chef had disappeared, and the car had been crashed. After the start of the event, the situation did not improve. The guests' suitcase had been opened, their glasses had been stolen, the guide's eyebrow was cut — definitely something was wrong. Despite the difficulties, in 8 days we traveled half of Lake Baikal and visited the Circum-Baikal Railway, Mamai Mountain, Sobolinie Lakes and the Islands of the Maloye More.
Lake Baikal
Conference in the taiga
For 4 days it was required to hold three presentations of new computer equipment and combine them with an entertainment program in nature. In two weeks, we went through six versions of the programs. The final included: a water walk, a banya with the best banya attendant of Russia, spa treatments, a trip to Sobolinie Lakes, fishing, a masterclass in cooking pilaf on a Finnish candle and dinner on the bank of the Angara.
Lake Baikal
Gastrotour on Baikal
For 12 days the guests changed 9 locations and tried Siberian-Baikal cuisine. A total of 112 dishes and snacks, accompanied by 32 drinks. We cooked in the taiga, arranged a culinary masterclass, got food by SUVs, on water, and by helicopter. Because of the lightning that hit the transformer, we were left without a refrigerator and electric stoves. In the intervals between changes of dishes, we went up to the mountains, floated on a mountain river, rode jet skis and steamed in the bath.
Lake Baikal
Swiss President at Lake Baikal
Our old friend called us and said that he was taking the president of the most famous in the world watch brand to Baikal. We had to plan the event in places where there is no tourist infrastructure. For four days the guests rested leisurely — they drank red wine, crossed Baikal by yacht, breathed the mountain air and tasted dishes of Siberian cuisine.
