Our first stop is a beautiful Inca ruin called Chachabamba. After exploring the site we will hike for 4 hours until we arrive at Wiñay Huayna (the place that never gets old). A packed lunch and refreshments will be provided. Later we will continue our hike to the Sun Gate to catch your first glimpse of the Lost City of the Incas - a truly unforgettable sight.
