Town Above the Clouds

This image taken along the Inca Trail displays the agricultural terraces of the ruin known as Phuyupatamarca, or “Town Above the Clouds.” To get here it requires 3 days of hiking, and once you arrive you are still about six miles away from Machu Picchu. Phuyupatamarca is one of four ruins that you encounter along the Inca Trail, not including Machu Picchu.

    1. Hi Lushlili,
      So many places around the world are absolutely gorgeous. I too hope you get out there soon enough to experience it for yourself, it is absolutely worth it. Where are you from now?

      Thanks for reading and commenting,

    1. Hey Jeff, It would be worth the trip. I’ve fallen in love with South America. There is something about it that is just different and intrigues me. And the Andes mountains are beautiful. If you get down there let me know, I know you’d make some stunning photographs.


    1. Thanks! It was absolutely incredible. Many more photographs still to come! And you should totally do it. Traveling is so worth it. \

      Thanks for visiting,

    1. Hi Ailsapm,

      Thank you very much! It was an incredible view. I’ve been sick and therefore slacking on posts, but I promise I’ll be starting posts from the Inca Trail very soon. Hope you stick around to check it out some more, and hope you get there to see it yourself one day soon!
