Phuyupatamarca located at an altitude of 3670 meters above sea level, this beautiful place is a clear example of the magnificent architecture that the Incas left as a vestige of their greatness. It has a complex structure of retaining walls and an andenería built on the steepest side of a mountain, is something like a gigantic balcony from where you can admire the beautiful landscape that surrounds this inhospitable place.
From its structure:
Why is it called "The Place among the clouds"?
In Phuyupatamarca a beautiful landscape dominates, because many of those who reached this point on their way to Machu Picchu, indicate that they feel like in the clouds, this effect is caused by the fog of the high forest rising to the archaeological complex, filling the whole place with a thick haze and giving the impression of being "floating" among the clouds; the experience is really incredible.
