INTIPATA - Inca Trail to MachuPicchu

INTIPATA – Camino Inca a MachuPicchu

Located between two very important archaeological sites inside the Inca Trail towards Machu Picchu, we talk about Wiñaywayna and Intipunku. Intipata is located at 2840 meters above sea level inside the historic sanctuary of Machu Picchu. It is a set of platforms built on the side of a mountain in the middle of the jungle eyebrow thus adopting its shape, and keeping a beautiful harmony with its surroundings.

Intipata, quechua term translated to Castilian would be: "Place of the Sun". When you walk you can not see the place at first sight, but if the travelers are more curious, you can observe these terraces, and the way the sun can be placed on the platforms, making a unique and unforgettable landscape to contemplate .
