Ouyantai is a very important place in the ancient Inca country. It is a major point on the Inca Trail. It takes a lot of effort and time to climb here, but standing on a high place to appreciate the surrounding scenery and imagine the people of the ancient Inca country. Life scene is a very good experience
The Oufutai is not too crowded but I really enjoyed it and you get a sense of the lively Inca civilization on the locals and their lives, not the simple artifacts and old buildings
Welcome tourists to the beautiful Sacred Valley! [Recommended gameplay] First, head to the beautiful [Cinchero Town], which is the birthplace of the famous textile industry in Peru. The locals are very good at various handicrafts, so it is called "the birthplace of the rainbow". The local handicraft market is bustling. Wearing local costumes to go to the beautiful Sacred Valley to punch in is also very cool. Then proceed to 【moray terraces】This is also a terraced landscape that is completely different from our impression, but it is by no means a legacy of aliens. Developed by the second-style king of the Inca Empire, it is stratified with 12 solar terms, each layer is planted with different crops, mainly in the hope that the seeds of Peru in other areas can survive. Some people call it "Peru Agricultural Laboratory" ". The magnificent and quite intelligent design makes us admire the idea of ancient civilization. [Tasting a local lunch] [Ouyantai Ruins] Ouyantai is located between Cusco and Machu Picchu. It was once the residence and administrative center of the rulers of the Inca Empire. During the Inca period, the population was about 1,000. The large-scale terraces that stretched for about 5 kilometers produced corn of the quality of the Inca Empire at that time. Above the terraces is the Temple of the Sun, which was not completed after the Spanish invasion. Six boulders weighing more than 100 tons stood here without mud or concrete pouring, but the six boulders were tightly connected and stood proudly after a major earthquake. End of the day's trip and return to the hotel in Cusco. For more local fun in Peru, please consult me!
Take the bus from Cusco to Pisac, then take the bus to Urubamba to Ouyantai. After crossing a bridge, after buying tickets and checking, I looked up at the terraces and stone buildings that "rise into the clouds". The first reaction was that I could not climb! Oh, you have to climb if you can't climb! Came here not far away. The tour guides in blue uniforms came to solicit customers, and they looked fairly formal. It's a pity that this tour guide's English is too poor, but fortunately his attitude is okay, and he understands a little bit. The tour guide carried a bag, and from time to time he took out an atlas from the bag to explain it to us. Once he even took out two things that looked like rocks and were actually dried potatoes. They said that they could be eaten after being soaked in water. It was amazing! He explained that the ten windows are actually not "windows". The Sun Temple is not the temple we imagined. It is actually a wall of six large stones. It is said that the leopard pattern can be seen. The opposite mountain looks like the head of a god from a certain angle. That mountain is used to store food. After looking at the buildings on the mountain, we went down the mountain. There are water-related buildings under the mountain. For example, there is a house with a high door. Actually, it is not for people to leave, but at a certain moment, the sunlight comes in from here, just right Combine the yin and yang of the earth. At this time, the mummies of the ancestors should be invited out for the sacrifice ceremony. In addition to the stone skills of the Incas, this calendar is probably amazing! Including the Sun Temple in front is also related to the sun shining down from the opposite mountain at a certain moment. The sights of Ouyantai are much smaller than Pisac, but also much more exquisite. After the visit, I strolled around the stalls. I bought a skewers of alpaca meat at the roadside stall and included a few potato cubes. The taste was okay.
South America | Passing by Ouyantai, punch a card, and give up 70 Peruvian coins in the Temple of the Sun. Anyway, I have seen more of these spectacular sites in Turkey and Europe. Eat some pasta and continue to drive to the dreaming horse Chu Picchu...
