Beautiful terraced Incan city which you will come upon on day 3 of the trek after just passing the third and final pass on the trail. It allows for great views and it is all downhill from here to the camp site for the night.

FInally this is no longer on my bucket list. It is a tough trip to get there especially if you suffer from altitude sickness. However, once you get there, it is heaven. I am so glad we went and I will never forget.

This is a slightly higher view point of Machu Pichu.If you choose to do the mountain hike then you will see this view point.

Another great Inca site, "the place above the clouds", along the Inca trail. You get great views of the Urubamba Valley from here and of the lower two Inca sites.
