On this section of the trail, we’ll see the first Incan site known as Kanabamba, in the further distance the majestic Veronica mountain (Waqaywillka).
Today our most fascinating site is Llaqtapata (Incan site which is comprised of temples, palaces, terraces), that was used as the nexus point between the cities from the jungle side and the cities from the highlands during the Incan empire, where our Trek Leader will deliver a great history about this site. At the place called Tarayoc we’ll have our lunch by 1:00 pm. We will then walk up the valley for two more hours to reach the first campsite, called Wayllabamba located at an altitude of 3,000 m / 9,840 ft.

Most part of the trail goes through the cloud forest where is possible to see beautiful orchids and birds, and most part of the trail is still original as the Incans left behind centuries ago.
