Inca trail to Machu Picchu

Puyupatamarca or Phuyupatamarca is an archaeological site along the Inca Trail in the Urubamba Valley of Peru. Due to its altitude of roughly 3200 metres,[1] it is known as "La Ciudad entre la Niebla" ("The City Above the Clouds").[2] It contains Inca ruins, with five small stone baths which during the wet season contain constant fresh running water.[3]
