Llullucha / Phuyupatamarca

Today the first part of the trek takes us over the Warmiwauska pass at the height of 13,500 feet. At its heights, the amazing stone trail is better preserved than when it passes through lower lands. As we descend, we leave the tundra vegetation and enter the elfin forest of bonsai trees covered by a profusion of creepers and orchids. We pass the important ruins of Runkuraqay and Sayacmarca and camp at Phuyupatamarca, the city above the clouds, from which there are spectacular views of snow covered mountain ranges.
