Over 11,000 feet above sea level, surrounded by giant mountains, into a narrow valley, a hairpin turn and wild crosswinds! That’s the flight into the Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport ( CUZ ) in Cusco (sometimes Cuzco), Peru.
Not only did this flight keep us on the edge of our seats, it was one of our most beautiful airplane rides to date. Above the snowcapped Andes – we’d never flown this close to a mountain.
