... we had mostly clouds ever at the start of the day, by the end we had spectacular views of the city as we made our descent back down the mountain.
The trail is 8km round trip, all uphill (2600 feet in elevation gain at the top) and 99% of the trails is made up of stone steps. The steps got shorter and steeper with each kilometer we climbed and the last third of the trail was pretty tough but so worth it in the end. The ...

... skills skuttling down the steep slippery stairs nimbler than the local Alpaca.
From that point it was all down hill with well over 4000 stairs taking us first to the impressive but oddly situated Intipata ruins and then onto our nights camp at Wi˝ayhuayna. What was to be our longest day was knocked off fairly simply and the 16km seemed shorter than the previous 2 days efforts.
Having arrived well before the pack we rested before afternoon tea,where today ...
