Summary of The Day

Let the big adventure begin!

After our hotel pick up we will go to Piscacucho (2,750 m/9,022 ft.), at Km. 82 on the tracks to enter the Inca Trail.

Our trip will start with a slow pace walk to get used to the trail.

We will be able to see the beautiful snowcapped Mountain Veronica and we’ll get to a natural viewpoint from where we will see the archaeological site of Llaqtapata.

Our first campsite will take place at Huayllabamba (3,000 m /9,842 ft.)

Day 4: Huayllabamba - Llulluchapampa - Warmiwanusca - Pacaymayo

Summary of The Day

The most intense day of the Inca Trail is here so make sure to bring some extra sugary sweets in your pocket for extra energy.

We will walk through the Valley of Huayllabamba while we observe the ecological changes of going from the highlands to the plateau.

In Yunca Chimpa we start the ascent to Llulluchapampa (3,750 mt. / 12,303 ft.).

While we enjoy a refreshing snack, the Huayanay Valley is in front of us, and the challenge of the day: the defiant Warmiwañusca mountain pass (4,200 mt. / 13,799 ft.), also known as “Dead Woman” mountain pass.

If we are lucky we´ll get to see the beautiful hummingbirds and sparrows that live in the area.

Finally it is time to descend to our campsite in Pacaymayo (3,600 mt. / 11,811 ft.) for lunch and rest after this challenging day. 

Hike Info

Distance: 11 Km. / 6.83 mi.

Estimated time: 6-7 hrs.

Maximum altitude reached: 4,200 mt. / 13,799 ft.

Campsite: Pacaymayo (3,600 mt. / 11,811 ft.)

Highlights: Warmiwañusca mountain pass.



Warmiwañusqa's English name is "Dead Woman's Pass". The reason for this is because the mountain looks like the silhouette of a woman looking up at the sky. As the name suggests, Dead Woman's Pass is also the most difficult place to conquer on the Inca Valley. She is located at 4,215 meters above sea level and has earned a “terrible reputation” among hikers.

Failure to cross this road would mean being defeated by this classic Peruvian trek and returning to Cusco without arriving at Machu Picchu.
