My favorite place in the Sacred Valley is Yucay. The people are incredibly friendly and the scenery is breathtaking.
This morning I took my DJI Mavic Air 2 to the Sacred Valley of the Incas and flew near the village of Yucay. The area has the most beautiful scenery in the entire valley with it’s pastoral life set amongst 500-year-old agricultural terraces still used today almost exactly as it was centuries ago.
I got to do more than just fly. I was able to stop and visit with some farmers working in their field along with a couple of boys walking from their home high up the canyon on their way down into the village.
People are beyond friendly. They seem to love talking with outsiders who are interested in their wonderful place.
That is how you learn about a place — by connecting with the people who live there. And especially by connecting with the people who’ve families have lived there for centuries.
