Along the way we can enjoy magnificent views of the Urubamba river valley and the archaeological complex Choquesuysuy located on the other side of the river, and also a beautiful waterfall located just minutes from Wiñaywayna. Then we will continue to climb to the Intipunku, or Puerta del Sol (Sun´s Gate). This will take an hour of walking along a trail of flat stones at the edges of cliffs in the high jungle.
