Mart's Third Big Trip travel blog

Winay Wayna

Me on the road

Final pass, Machu Pichu mountain in background

The Sacred River

More walking! Over the third pass (3650m), from where you can see Machu Picchu mountain (but not the ruins which are on the other side).

Arrived at Winay Wayna campsite (2700m) at midday and checked out the local ruins there. Winay Wayna is only an hour from Machu Picchu, but we stay here to be able to get to Machu Picchu first thing in the morning (before the hordes that bus in).

In the evening we paid tips to the porters etc and had a beer with them. They sang for us and danced with the girls in the group (who were not particularly willing, but went along with it anyway).
