We drop down to the warm forest. Once in here, we will have a glimpse of 2500 year old history of Tiwanaku and the Inca, walking on an ancient trail built with obvious engineering knowledge. This paved path was in early times a trunk way of trans-regional commerce. Hundreds of llamas were used to carry produce and materials from the Amazon to the high Andes en route to the Pacific coast and vice versa.
