Nestled in the centre of the Sacred Valley, Ollantaytambo is a fantastic little town that provides a great destination to stopover en route to Machu Picchu.
The town is conveniently situated near the railway that takes visitors from Cusco to Machu Picchu and is also very close to the starting point for Inca Trail trekkers.
Because Ollantaytambo is 1,000m below Cusco (which is 3,400m above sea level), it provides a very good location to begin the acclimatisation process. In fact many visitors to the region travel directly to the Sacred Valley after landing in Cusco to reduce the likelihood of experiencing altitude sickness.
