TREK TO MACHU PICCHU DAY 5
Route: Maizal to Yanama
We were up before dawn in order to get an early start for a twelve mile day which included breathtaking scenery when we arrived at San Juan Pass, 14,432.’ Before reaching the pass, there were many stretches of ancient Inca stone paths. We also were fortunate to have such clear views of Pumasillo, 19,800′ along the way. We then began to descend to the Andean village of Yanama where we camped in chilly weather at 11,381.’ Hot water bottles were very welcome that night.
