Our journey continues to Tarachayoq, to enjoy a delicious lunch prepared by our Chef. Then, we will continue a short section to reach Hatunchaca, the place of the first camp, where you have dinner and rest.
This day requires more physical effort; after having breakfast very early, an abrupt ascent begins, through a path surrounded by a Queñua or Polylepis forest, until it comes to rest at the highest point of the Inca Trail, the Abra Warmiwañusca or Mujer Muerta (13,860 ft) whose area seems to surround you with a majestic landscape of deep valleys and mountains.
We begin the descent, passing to the lunch point and continuing to Pacaymayo, the second camp that allows, in addition to a comforting rest, incomparable contact with nature.
This day you wake up in the middle of the beauty of the Inca Trail. After breakfast, start the ascent until you reach Runkurakay, a building of small stones without a roof considered as an astrological site and a kind of checkpoint for the messengers on the way to Machu Picchu.
Continue the journey between a cloud forest and views of the mountain ranges, to the largest archaeological site of the Inca Trail, Sayacmarca, known as a town in a steep place.
Then you discover the beautiful architecture of the City Above the Clouds or Phuyupatamarca, to finally arrive at the iconic archaeological complex Inca Wiñay Wayna or “Siempre Joven” (8,694 ft), architectural beauty that covers the side of a mountain respecting the natural form. Here we will have a well-deserved rest.
