Source Peru is nestled between a breathtaking 100-foot waterfall, a river canyon, and two spectacular mountains. We are just below the clouds at 10,000 feet in the heart of the Sacred Valley. The property is beautifully landscaped and surrounded by fragrant eucalyptus groves with an abundance of fruit trees and water features on the grounds. When you drift off to sleep under the Milky Way and awaken to the sounds of a waterfall, you’ll know you’ve come to a place where nature can heal both body and mind.
We are a scenic 75-minute drive from Cusco and its renowned ruins such as the Saqsaywaman temple and fortress. UNESCO World Heritage Site, Machu Picchu, is relatively close by. Nearby local villages offer opportunities to admire Spanish-influenced architecture and artistry, while the mountains cradling the Sacred Valley provide the perfect setting to trek among spectacular scenery and center yourself.
Just a short flight from Lima, the capital of Peru, Cusco is the largest tourist destination in the country due to the breathtaking views, ancient ruins, unique heritage and of course, Machu Picchu. Cusco was the site of the historic capital of the Inca Empire and was declared a World Heritage Site, along with Machu Picchu, in 1983 by UNESCO. After leaving Cusco en route to Machu Picchu you will pass through the Sacred Valley, the heart of the Incan empire. Filled with ruins and snow-capped peaks, it is the perfect blend of natural beauty and man-made wonders. There are many sights to see as you make your way through the valley including Pisaq’s ruins and local market, the Lares hot springs, Moray ruins and Maras salineras, the ruins of Ollantaytambo and many more. And Source Peru is conveniently situated in the heart of it all.
Most people come to the Sacred Valley with the ultimate goal of visiting Machu Picchu, one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. Built in the 15th century upon jagged peaks at 7,970 ft above sea level, it is the most visited tourist attraction in Peru and the iconic site of the Inca civilization. Truly, no trip to Peru is complete without a visit to Machu Picchu.
When you attend a retreat with us, tours to Machu Picchu, to Lake Titicaca, and even to the Amazon can easily be arranged and we encourage you to add extra time to take advantage of our accessibility to desirable touristic sites.
A fusion of rich cultural heritages, Peru is full of adventures and beautiful natural treasures. It’s all simply waiting for you to come discover it.
