Breakfast: Early morning wake-up call with a hot beverage.

Breakfast at camp.


Morning: Begin the approximately 1-hour hike to the Runkuracay archaeological site overlooking the Pacaymayo Valley. Enjoy a site lecture.

After reaching the pass, continue downhill for approximately 1 hour before arriving at the narrow staircase that will take you into Sayacmarca ("Inaccessible Town"). Enjoy a site lecture.

The ruins of Sayacmarca are the remnants of a fortress or travelers' lodge used by the Inca. Sayacmarca was built on a narrow mountain ridge with only one entrance--probably planned as a means of defence. The thatched roofs are long gone, but an observatory, small plaza, ritual baths, housing complex, and other constructions remain. The lack of agricultural terraces and farmland point to a dependence on outside suppliers--a big weakness in times of war. In its heyday, Sayacmarca is thought to have housed as many as 200 people.

Leave the ruins and hike for another 20 minutes before breaking for lunch.
