Winay wayna is a fantastic historical site. It is an agricultural site featuring a huge number of terraces running down the side of a remote mountain, together with a series of fountains running down to some houses at the centre of the site. The views...More

After a long third day on the Inca Trail the last thing that you want to do is a side track to another attraction. However, you are missing out big time if you do not find the extra energy to make the relatively short 15...More

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 is halway up teh mountain on the 2-day Inca Trail hike that we did with Alpaca Exhibitions. It's a more holy site than Machu Picchu apparently. Since we were waiting to see the big one though, we weren't THAT excited about it - and...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

We arrive at this peak in half an hour. It has opened a very beautiful panorama. We made a wonderful photo. Really liked it.

Hi Bence, I was there in May 2017 and we came up from the rail line (the one day hike of the Trail). You go through a checkpoint at that location and they record passport information etc. I don't believe that they let you... More

I'm sorry, I didn't see this question. I hiked from KM104 last year. I was 68 years old with a bad back at the time. I have hiked most of my life, but my back has slowed me down a lot. I think your kids are old enough to... More

Winay Wayna is an ancient Incan settlement located on the Inca trail itself. It is located very close to the campsite for trekkers at the end of day 3 so unless you have a permit to do the Inca Trail you will probably not be... More
