This incan ruin falls along the Inca Trail near the last campsite before Machu Picchu. There are multiple ruins in that area but Winaywayna simply stands out mostly because of the brilliant architecture. It literally stands on a steep slope representing an elegantly and perfectly...More

This is the name of this amazing ancient structure....located in the town of Machu-pichu. The Spaniards who Sacked Peru of their treasures did not know this existed until an American explorer Hiram Bingham went in search of the lost Inca empire...

We took the one day hike to MP from the river and arrived at this location after a grueling hike up to intersect the Inca Trail. While the intersect point left a lot to be desired (this is a campsite for multiday hikes to MP)...More

We arrived in Winaywayna on the third day of our Inca trek. Thanks to the way our trek was organised by Alpaca Expeditions (detailed review on their TA page) we arrived here at 3pm. The campsite at Winawayna is located just a short walk away....More

We did the 1 day hike to Machu Picchu that starts at KM 104. Along this hike is when you get to see Winawyana & it's completely worth the effort! It really is amazing to see all of the terraces. Since this is on the...More

I still can't believe that the Incans were so amazing to build this place. I was in awe at every turn!

Can only be accessed from the Inca Trail. Our guide rates this place more highly the MP itself. It is stunning, beautiful and serene. Once you arrive, have some lunch and explore the site. There were around 20 other people, when we arrived. It is...More

Must go and must see by yourself! It isn't a easy travel because you'll have to stop at Lima, take a flight to Cusco, take a train to Ollantaytambo and then, take a bus until Machu Picchu. But after all of it you'll not regret.

Beautiful scenery, we were lucky the weather was great but I hear the weather is good most of the time. It rained a bit on the trek up there but overall, a great experience.

This is a must see for all who travel. Peru is a magical place and this is one of the top sites to show it off to the world. The craftsmanship of the site is unbelievable. Magic in the clouds.

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
