The Inca trail itself by now has become more apparent: a defined path made of flat boulders descending into the valley where we`ll get at the ruins of Sayacmarca. After having crossed the dry lake, we enter in the rain forest; the trees are adorned with orchids, paradise flowers and flock of parrots can be see on the trail, with an unforgettable fowl lodge along the valley.
