This is a shot taken from the ancient agriculture terraces of Pisac in the Urumbamba valley. These terrace and many like it in the Valley grew the food to support the Incan Empire, and it still an important area of agriculture.
The mountain to in the right is full of caves used as tombs by the Incans.
