Next Day
This was our longest but best day hiking. The trail wandered by impressive ruins and then followed the crest of Andes, offering views that inspired our legs to keep going.
Inca Trail hotel.
Today we traversed two mountain passes, at 4000 meters and 3700 meters.
The Sayamarca ruins, built on a small spur with tremendous mountain views.
A paved mountain trail: we wheezed our way along it. Imagine how much wheezing the Incas endured to lay all of these flagstones.
