After resting for a bit, we will cross to the section of the Inca Trail that historically connected Machupicchu with the city of Vilcabamba. Then, here our guide will explain to us a bit more about the history of the Incas, as well as the system of communication that existed during that time. At this point, we will also see one of the most impressive views in all of the Huancarccasa Canyon. Afterward, we will descend to the small town of Quellomayo, where we will stop to eat lunch and rest in the nearby hammocks.
