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

After hiking for a good while, you come upon these preserved ruins along the Incan trail. Worth spending some time hiking up and around exploring them. More great views. Adds to the Incan experience!

This Inca city was absulutely amazing along the the Inca Trail, small but stunning, our guide from Sam travel gave us the history lesson about the Incas. Highly recommended.

Explore or better still take a guide to get better info on all the ruins. Will need a good pair of walking shoes.

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
