This glamping experience gives you the true mountain experience, with an epic view of the surrounding Sacred Valley. It’s the perfect place to stay while hiking in the region, and serves as a great base for exploring Machu Picchu and the other remnants of the Inca Empire.

“The passion for the incredible Andean landscapes and the Peruvian culture have been the main drivers for the creation of Mountain View Experience,” the hotel says. “Enjoying each of the experiences that Peru offers us, connecting with nature and communities, feeling and living the culture that is shared in these lands is undoubtedly our philosophy.”

The Sacred Valley is home to some of Peru’s most incredible natural sights. The valley itself stretches out for over 60 miles, encompassing small villages, rivers, mountains, and terraced fields. One of its most popular attractions is the ruins of Ollantaytambo, which were built in the 15th century as an administrative center for the Inca Empire. Other sites worth visiting include Moray, which features impressive stone platforms arranged in concentric circles; Pisac, a traditional village known for its colorful markets; and Chinchero, which boasts a 17th-century colonial church surrounded by Inca ruins.
