Just before we reached our campsite for the day we came across the ruins of Intipata which I was really impressed with. Intipata means "Sun Terraces" in english, however the day that we walked through there they were covered in cloud.

There were lots and lots of agriculture terraces which we walked right through. It is said that Intipata was likely to be an agriculture centre for Machu Picchu population.
