visit Pacaymayo

At an altitude of 3,600 meters, Pacaymayo may mark the loftiest night’s sleep of a lifetime. An emerald wilderness blends with the clouds at this height, making every glance and photograph seductively exhilarating. It is yet another atmospheric stop along the Inca Trail—yet, Pacaymayo’s unique ambiance is bolstered even more by its proximity to some of the trail’s highlights.

From here, relics from the bygone Inca Empire are just a 20-minute trek away at Runkurakay. The site is one of the most rewarding camping spots along the Inca Trail. With its picture-perfect semicircular shape, Runkurakay has an extraterrestrial feel to it intensified by the mist-shrouded mountain pass looming over at a distance. The views of the valley become heart-stoppingly dramatic the higher the altitude. So, find a comfy spot to rest and take it all in. The wonders of the path from Pacaymayo to Winay Wayna set the stage for incredible adventures.

After Runkurakay, the descent begins, leading to the astounding ruins of Sayacmarka. Perched on the edge of an escarpment, Sayacmarka is another epitome of Incan skill. It features several ritual baths, a temple dedicated to the sun, and residential sections similar to other ruins in Sacred Valley. The enclosed feel at Sayacmarka will provide a magic touch to your Inca Trail experience.
