After the conquest by the Spaniards, Manco Inca and his successors dominated the Vilcabamba region. It included several centers and settlements built in honor of the last dynasty of the Incas: Manco Inca, Sayri Tupac, Titu Cusi Yupanqui and Tupac Amaru I. According to the customs and traditions of other pre-Inca cultures, a neo-imperial state was created to preserve all knowledge in religion and astronomy. Vilcabamba is located northwest of Cusco, in the province of La Convención, in the eastern cordillera of the Andes.
This tour to the ruins of Machu Picchu beginning with Vilcabamba has a chain of snow-capped peaks and high jungle mountains with constant climatic changes. The region is bounded by two very deep canyons, the Apurímac Canyon on the left and the Willcamayu Canyon on the right. The running of the rivers still cultivates one of the most beautiful and spectacular landscapes of fast current.
