"New to Cusco City Guide 📍Geographical location: high altitude area! Peru Cusco, the city is about 3,310 meters above sea level. ✈️ Transportation: Cusco airport code CUZ (full name: Aeropuerto Internacional Teniente Alejandro Velasco Astete), don’t be afraid of the long name, no matter how it changes, Cusco is just one airport, whatever you call it. ) 🚕Airport➡️City center: 10 Peruvian Sol, but some drivers will increase the fare according to the number of people. Four people are likely to charge 20 Peruvian Sol, which is almost 5 Peruvian Sol per person. 📝Travel tips 🔸When you first enter Cusco, you will have some altitude sickness, rapid heartbeat, lethargy, constant yawn, dizziness, and you should get used to a slow pace of life in high altitude areas. 🔸If you get off the plane and take the itinerary directly, you can arrange a city tour, mainly around the Plaza de Armas in the city center. The tour time is almost the time for taking pictures. The overall situation is relatively easy; if you choose the Inca Sacred Valley salt field line and need to climb, it may feel powerless for travelers who have not yet adapted to the plateau environment. 🔺Of course, if you have good physical strength and enough time, you can run the Sacred Valley Salt Field first and then the city line. 🔸There are many restaurants near the Plaza of Arms, and there are many cafes, and the tastes are also good."

"As soon as you arrive in Cusco, you will visit the Temple of the Sun (QORIKANCHA). The entrance fee is 15 pesos (1 peso = 2RMB). This is a must-see attraction for a group tour. There are a lot of tourists in the Sun Temple. The tour guide is waving a small flag, but it is very quiet. Tourists use headphones to listen to the explanation. In the Inca era, Cusco was the capital of the Inca Empire and was considered the center of the world. This temple of the sun is supreme. In the agricultural era, people pray that the sun god will never disappear. At the Machu Picchu site, there are also stone carvings intended to tie the sun. So far, every year on the winter solstice in South America in June, a grand ceremony to worship the sun god is held. The Temple of the Sun in Cusco is now a ruin, with only part of the outer wall in ruins. The stone wall we saw was made of large, smooth and flat boulders that were irregular but like building blocks. The concave and convex surfaces of the stone occluded tightly without any gaps, showing the design, wisdom and superb skills of craftsmen in the Inca era. According to historical records, the temple of the sun built in the Inca era, the megalithic building, and the outer gold foil wrapped, in addition to enshrining the sun god, there are also moon, stars, rainbow and thunder god, called the golden temple or golden garden. The Spanish colonists invaded, the gold leaf was plundered, and the sun temple was transformed into a monastery. Now you can see some replicas of the old furnishings in the Temple of the Sun, many of which are religious paintings, sculptures, and artifacts. The garden outside the Sun Temple building is full of mystery, which makes people fascinate and admire the Inca culture."
