Out of Cuzco last Saturday, our first destination was a fabulous guest house in the Sacred Valley, surrounded by enormous mountains. Here´s the view from our balcony.
The guest house is called the Green House and is owned and run by Brian from Liverpool and Gabriel from Buenos Aires. We were here 2 nights (it should have been 3, thank you French air traffic strikers).
Highly recommended if you are ever in this part of the world. In the village of Huaran, the Green House is 90 minutes scenic bus ride NE from Cuzco. http://thegreenhouseperu.com/
Great food, hot water bottles in the beds, 3 lovely dogs and fantastic walks into the mountains from the door step.
After 5 hours walking upwards, we stopped here and trudged back. We were 15 minutes short of a small community (just over the ridge in the middle distance) where we may have been able to trade biscuits for potatoes.
Next post about Machu Picchu.
