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

Puyapatamarca means a city upon the clouds and getting there you have the impression that the name is true. We vere lucky to enjoy the splendid view to Urubamba. Absolutely recommended
