Machu Picchu: Trek & Team Enjoy Views from Phuyaupatamarca Pass

This morning we got out early ahead of the other groups and were rewarded with phenomenal 360 degree views of the lush converging valleys and glaciated peaks. Usually the clouds hang between the trail and these tall mountains due to our proximity to the cloud forest. As we wrapped up our time at Phuyupatamarca Pass, 12,130’ the clouds began to rise from the Urubamba River and the glaciers were hidden.

The day was filled with great views, warming temperatures and elaborate ruins. In particular the terraces of Intipata and Winaywayna captured the groups attention due to the scale of such a project completed on the side of a steep and heavily vegetated mountain. We are all looking forward to walking into Machu Picchu at sunrise, getting a shower at the hotel is a close second.

Hi Dori.  What a sport you are!  And it appears that you have an excellent leader.  I’m looking forward to hearing about your trip when you’re home.  You, Rhonda and I have a date August 7.  Enjoy the rest of your time in Peru!!
