Traveling to the town of Urubamba, located in Peru’s Sacred Valley of the Incas, is a highly recommended stop when exploring the Peruvian Andes Mountains. Due to its strategic location, the town is a popular base camp for many visitors who want to explore the nearby salt mines, rainforest, Inca ruins and the famous citadel of Machu Picchu.

Many travelers choose to pass through Urubamba before settling in Cusco, in order to fully adapt to the terrain and enjoy their experience even more. Because this city is located 610 meters above sea level, one of the most moderate altitudes in the area.

Naturally, culturally and historically it possesses an enormous wealth that can be fully enjoyed. Some of the most popular activities are horseback riding, unforgettable hiking excursions and, above all, ziplining or zip-lining. Spectacular ruins such as Puyupatamarca, Llactapacta, Runkurakay and Sayaqmarka, as well as a number of hidden spots around the Urubamba River, are just some of the attractions of this wonderful place.
