Here you can enjoy your box lunch provided by us, while you enjoy the endless panoramic views. After a quick change it is onwards and downwards to Huamanmarca, site of a recently discovered Inca archeological find. Your tour guide will provide the historical background and the rest you can fill in for yourselves!

Rise at 5.30am, for breakfast which is at 6am. Under dawn skies you will begin your walk, which gets progressively steeper, until arriving at the welcoming family restaurant in Santa Rosa, where you can relax in hammocks, admiring the coca plantations and take on refreshments while being entertained by the family monkey. After a short while you will reach the real Inca Trail, which winds around precipitous slopes and sheer drops for approximately half a mile. Be warned this is not for people who suffer from vertigo! The descent continues for just over two hours until you reach Qellomayo, a pueblito, where you will have lunch.
