One of the optional routes on the Inca trail takes you from km104 to Winay Wayna. Following the sharp curves of the valley leads you to this impressive site, hidden on the steep sides of the hillside typical of this area. You get an idea...More

Considered incidental to the main trek to the Sun Gate it is definitely worth the small detour to take in the breath-taking views of the Inca site. Peace and tranquillity are the two abiding memories of this site. This is accessible following the main ascent...More

Ok, so we got unlucky...it rained! We started the climb at 9am and had no idea what to expect or how long it was going to take. The climb to the top is tough and long, roughly 2 hours up and an hour down. If...More

We reach Winay Wayna on the 3rd day of our Inca Trail Trek. Out of all the sites on the Inca Trail (including Machu Picchu), this was by far the most spectacular. Not only is this site relatively untouched, we were fortunate enough to have...More

This was the last set of Inca ruins I saw on the Inca trail before heading out to Machu Picchu itself the very next morning. It was very close to that last campsite. As we traversed the Inca trail, and got closer to Machu Picchu,...More

This was easily my favorite Inka site out of the 4-5 sites that we visited during the 4-day Inca Trail hike. Not half as crowded as Machu Picchu and the surrounding mountains and waterfalls are simply stunning. Not sure if you can get to this...More

After hiking for a good while, you come upon these preserved ruins along the Incan trail. Worth spending some time hiking up and around exploring them. More great views. Adds to the Incan experience!
