Day 2: Ayapata – Chaquicocha

Today is considered by many to be the hardest day of the trek; with 2 high passes (Dead Woman’s Pass is the highest at 4200m / 13779ft) to cross and nearly 16km to walk. We got amazing views of the high mountain ranges as we crossed the 2 passes and visited 2 incredible Inca sites (Runcuraccay and Sayacmarca). The campsite for night 2 is at Chaquicocha (3600m / 11800ft), which like Ayapata is one of the quieter campsites and affords beautiful views over the mountains in the distance.
