Traveling from Cusco to Quillabamba is a must see at least once in your life time.
Quillabamba is a city in southern Peru. It is the capital of the province of La Convencion, the largest province in the region of Cusco. It is located in an area called the ceja de selva (border of jungle). Agriculture is the most important activity, mainly coffee, cocoa, tea and cocoa.
When I was in Peru, I traveled from Cusco to Quillabamba, and it was an adventure that I’ll never forget.
The journey from Cusco to Quillabamba is a long one, and it can take anywhere from 5 to 8 hours depending on the mode of transportation. The most common way to get to Quillabamba is by bus, and there are several bus companies that operate on this route. I opted to take a local bus, which was a more affordable option than the tourist buses.
The bus ride from Cusco to Quillabamba was quite an experience. The road winds through the Andes Mountains, offering stunning views of the rugged landscape. The bus driver navigated the narrow, winding roads with skill and precision, but I have to admit that I was a bit nervous at times! Along the way, we passed through small towns and villages, where locals were selling their wares on the side of the road.
Despite the long journey, the bus ride was quite comfortable. The seats were plush, and there was plenty of legroom. The bus also made several stops along the way, which gave us a chance to stretch our legs and grab a bite to eat.
When we finally arrived in Quillabamba, I was struck by the beauty of the town. Surrounded by lush green mountains and dotted with palm trees, it was a stark contrast to the arid landscapes that I had seen in other parts of Peru. Overall, the journey from Cusco to Quillabamba was an unforgettable adventure that I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Peru.
