A gem you'd stumble en route to Machu Pichu - not as grand but calls for a visit Nov 28, 2013
When we settled in to our campsite on Day 3 around the afternoon, we thought our 'work' for the day was done and we could chillax at the site. Our guide informed us of this other site we could visit, but it was optional. And when I decided to go with the group, there was a part of me thinking "I should've just stayed back with those relaxing instead". Thank God I didn't.
Anything you wanted to learn about the Incas - how they used their water fountains, the terracing, how they grew different plants at different levels of the terrace, how their skills were dowsed by the Spanish during the invasion, just about anything, and it's ALL here in this site.
What's even better? Well, you have farmers who still actively let their llamas graze the land much to the delight of tourists. Except for 2 Aussies that day, as 2 llamas wouldn't let them climb back up (after they climbed down to see more of the ruins!).
All in all, this is a beautiful way to spend an evening when doing the Inca hike. it's so serene around, the hills, the clouds, and best of all - you know that Machu Pichu is round the corner!
