Rise and shine! A huge, but rewarding day of hiking the Inca Trail awaits. We’ll pass narrow bridges, hike through cloudy lush forests and climb many stairs as we make the ascent to Llulluchapampa. We highly recommend that you take your time and stop for breaks whenever necessary throughout this challenging section of the hike. Then, rest up and munch down a few celebratory snacks before the next leg – the famous Warmy Huañusca pass. Located at 4,200 metres above sea level this section of the hike will be the highest point we reach on the Inca Trail. The 2-kilometre pass can be both steep and challenging, so take your time and stop for breaks along the way. Trust us when we say it’ll all be worth it – don’t forget to look up and enjoy some of the most beautiful landscapes in all the world! Once we reach the top of the mountain, we’ll be greeted with spectacular views of the Andes mountains. Snap a few postcard-perfect Inca Trail shots to share with everyone back home.
