En route from Cusco to the Sacred Valley

An early start to fly from Lima to Cusco and then a couple of hours drive from Cusco to the Sacred Valley to acclimatise to the altitude. Cusco is 3400m and the climb over the Andes took us to 3762m. We both felt lightheaded as we visited a small artisan textile workshop at Chinchera but not so lightheaded we weren’t able to buy some of the beautiful alpaca wool products!
