CITY OF LIGHT LOCATION
In the Andes of Peru, tucked between Cusco and Machu Picchu, lies the Sacred Valley of the Incas. A stretch of virtually untouched villages and ancient ruins ranging across broad fields and mountain slopes, it drips with Andean history, culture, and beauty.
Originally formed by the Urubamba River (the region is also known as the Urubamba Valley), the valley was once the fertile and spiritual base of the Incan Empire. Corn, coca, potatoes, and more grew in fields and along terraced mountain slopes, while the Incan astrological beliefs reflected the river's relentless flow.
Today, the mountain air is crisp and thin. Massive sky tumbles into tremendous landscapes. Quechua-speaking farmers work the fields with methods unchanged since the ancient Incan era. But while the Sacred Valley is deeply rooted in its history, contemporary influences are now intertwined with tradition. The only thing more striking than the landscape is the cohesive, living blend of the ancient and the modern.
The City of Light Evolutionary Journeys is located in Calca, a majestic town central in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. We are just 45 minutes away from Ollantaytambo and Cusco. There are many incredible sacred sites like Moray, Chinchero, Ollantaytambo, Sacsayhuaman, Tipón among others all within 1 hours reach and Machu Picchu within 2 hours reach by train.
