Inca Trail Highlights

The Valley of Llulluchapampa

One of the largest ancient sites on the trail with hundreds of housing structures and complex terrace systems. This impressive ruin is stated to be a ceremonial place which played host the urban and agricultural sector and the cemetery of this area. It is located at 2,800 meters of altitude. It was one of Hiram Bingham’s first rediscoveries in 1912 and studied many times after that noting its location was of astrological importance.

Sayacmarca and Runkurakay

Site that truly show off the technological and engineering feats of the Incas with their construction and uses of these sites. These sites offer magical views of the surrounding mountain ranges Vilcabamba and Pumasillo mountain ranges and the hidden valley.

Abra de Warmiwanusca (Dead Woman’s Pass)
