Winaywayna or Winay Wayna, literally translated as “forever young”, is an Inca site along the Inca Trail close to the famous ruins of Machu Picchu. Winaywayna is yet another great example of Inca civillisation and is made up of two levels containing a network of houses, fountains and agricultural terraces.
Whilst it forms part of the Inca Trail, tourists can also see Winaywayna as part of a standalone trip to Machu Picchu, the hike usually takes around three and half hours.
Machu Picchu is one of the world’s best preserved Inca sites, located in Peru and protected by UNESCO.
Museum Manuel Chavez Ballón is the museum of the famous Machu Picchu site.
