On the first day of the Inca Trail, you reach a viewpoint from where you can see the ruins of Llactapata. The views are impressive, surrounded by the Andes.

Wonder of the world made centuries ago. It is hard to believe the Incas could buid such a fine structure that lasted over the years. The views were amazing just before the rain, visited during the rainy season. One must be in good physical condition to see all the sites, but is was worth it. A gem in Preu.

Located across the valley from Machu Picchu, Llaqtapata is quite literally a hidden gem. Overgrown by foliage and vegetation, these ruins are just being unearthed. What a treasure! Also, fantastic views of Machu Picchu from here.

this is one of the lesser known attractions at machu picchu but it should be on your list of things to see while you are there. make sure to wear bug spray and sun block, really you will regret it if you do not.

If you do the 4D/3N Inca trail you'll pass above the site. It makes for a great stop along the way. Our tour guide gave us a 20 min class on the Inca Civilization and importance of villages like this.

This was the first ruin we saw along the inca trail. It was unique and magical to look down upon it from up high on a cliff. I highly recommend Sam travel Peru as your trek operator. Good and fair cost, excellent guides, and gourmet food.

We visited this as part of our trek of the Salkantay, a fantastic trek, glad we did this and not the Inca Trail, far more authentic, less crowded and more rewarding.

One of the many beautiful examples of ancient terraced Incan cities found along the inca trail, it is the first sight you see along the trail and it is breathtaking, both in its location and lit up by the sun.

If you travel with Amazonas Explorer, you get to camp under this sight for the first day, and then tour it on their slower "5-Day Inca Trail". It's well worth it. The place is amazing in the sunrise, and the sun temple is very interesting, and you can go in it (and there are no crowds), making this site give something that Machu Picchu can't. Also, afterwards there is an optional path up a cliff side to get a great view from above -- if you're not too feint of heart, do it! The view is magnificent.
