At 3762m, Chinchero was the highest point we had reached yet. The views were simply stunning and the sky above us was full of energizing sunshine.
Potatoes used to be the principal crop of these ruins. The Incans knew that each level had a different micro-climate and experimented with growing different varieties of crops at each level in an attempt to grow high quality produce and maximize production. They designed these levels after observing Mother Nature.
Although we did not want to leave such a peaceful place, we headed back to the village of Chinchero where we wandered through heaps of weaving, an important part of the local economy. The wools were incredibly soft to the touch and died with all sorts of natural objects, such as purple corn, to obtain bright colours.
