This was the last set of Inca ruins I saw on the Inca trail before heading out to Machu Picchu itself the very next morning. It was very close to that last campsite.
As we traversed the Inca trail, and got closer to Machu Picchu, the other ruins seemed to get more grand. For instance, Winay Wayna had 12 fountains - Machu Picchu has 16.
Once again these are very impressive ruins, certainly from the top looking down. But it is a long way to the buildings at the bottom - over 100 steep steps - which you have to climb up again. At altitude. After a couple of days hiking already.
But do it I say - chances are you'll never be here again. Well worth it!
