After breakfast, begin hiking to the highest pass of the trek. It is located at 4,650 meters (15,200 feet) and halfway between two huge mountains; Salkantay on the right and Tucarhuay on the left. 

From here, take in views of the two snow-capped mountains. Then, continue downhill through a dramatic cloud forest towards Huayracpunku, also known as Huayracmachay. Have lunch and then hike for about 3 hours towards the jungle to reach the second campsite, Chaullay (2,920meters/9,800feet).
