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.

maybe i havent liked this trek cos i was really tired after coming back from the top of machu picchu but i guess it's not worth this visit unless you cant manage to do the summit, in this case inka bridge might be a good back up

Day 3 of the Inca Trail is the best day of all. You see one large ruin after another. Puyapatamarca was the best ruin we saw all day. Even larger than Sayaqmarka from just a couple of hours before. This one is very steep and there is a complex system of water channels flowing around it. These were formerly ritual... More
