Marcahuasi/ Markawasi Plateau
Markawasi - Marcahuasi is a magical plateau that exists high in the Peruvian Andes. It is place that time seems to have forgotten and a place I have returned to repeatedly since first discovering it 21 years ago. At an approximate altitude of 13,000 feet the sky seems to caress you and the silence can be truly amazing. On Markawasi there are ancient structures built by a pre-Incan civilization including burial huts ripe with skulls and bones. Marcahuasi is a wonderful place for camping, trekking, exploring and soul searching.
