(Dry Lake, 3600 meters). After lunch, we walk for 2 hours along what we like to call the “Inca plane” (gradual slopes) and begin to enter the jungle, known as the Cloud Forest. As we walk we will have the opportunity to see the majesty of Salkantay, the second highest snow-capped mountain in Cusco. Towards the end of the Inca floors we begin to climb to the last peak at Phuyupatamarka (3600 meters) from where we will have excellent views of the Urubamba River. At the end of the valley we get our first views of Machu Picchu mountain, but the site itself is still hidden from view. From Phuyupatamarka it is 3 hours walking up a flight of stairs, to our last camp, arrival time is 16:00 p.m. Wiñay Wayna is the most spectacular Inca site on the trail after Machu Picchu and the most popular camp due to its proximity to Machu Picchu.
