Visiting a mid-15 century town Ollantaytambo in Peru

This beautifuly preserved mid-15 century Inca town called Ollantaytambo, Peru in the Cusco region, was one of our tour stops with our guide from Journeyou. You can see the number of tourists in the background, including people walking on the agricultural terraces. The amazing views of the Inca Town and mountain landscapes was absolutely breath taking. This is town is located at an altitude of 2,792 meters (9,160 ft) above sea level.
