There’s a dirt road that connects to a spot just outside of Pachar (near Hacienda del Chalán), or you could go back the way you came to the paved road which will snake you down some switchbacks into Urubamba and then head northwest. Once you get to Pachar, you’ll see that this little pueblo isn’t much more than a crossroads, en route to the nearby Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu. However, situated here is the Cervecería del Valle Sagrado (Sacred Valley Brewery), a true gem. They have a very pleasant outside seating area on the river with great food and, of course, artisanal beer. While I was there, I had the opportunity to meet one of the owners who also founded the Sacred Valley Project, a nonprofit organization which makes secondary education possible for young indigenous girls from mountain communities who otherwise would not have this option.
