Once capital of the Inca Empire, Cusco is steeped in history, tradition and legend. After sightseeing in Cusco, including a visit to the spectacular Sacred Valley of the Incas, the adventure continues with an exciting drive past Ollantaytambo over the Malaga pass to Huancalle. This is the trailhead for a trek in the Cordillera Vilcabamba, a remote corner of the Peruvian Andes. There are some staggering views of Mt Salcantay. The documentary concludes with a visit to majestic Machu Pichu.
