A LITTLE OF HISTORY:

Bingham first discovered Llaqtapata in 1912. "We found evidence that some Inca chieftain had built his home here and had included in the plan ten or a dozen buildings. Bingham locates the site "on top of a ridge between the valleys of the Aobamba and the Salcantay, about 5,000 feet above the estate of Huaquina." "Here we discovered a number of ruins and two or three modern huts. The Indians said that the place was called Llactapata." Bingham did not investigate the ruins thoroughly, however, and they were not studied again for another 70 years.

Trekking Time: Approximately 9 hours (including picnic lunch in the route), and 2 hours for the lunch time.

Walk and Terrain: Walk, on mostly steep trails, and some open slopes.

Distance: 18 km.
