The Sacred mountain of “Apu Yanantin”, revered by the Andean people and said to symbolize the union of two dissimilar energies. The mountain sits high above the magnificent Incan fortress and ruins of Ollantaytambo, a beautiful atmospheric Incan village wedged between fantastic mountain ruins on either side. The village remains largely unchanged in hundreds of years and is still full of direct Incan descendants, this despite the thousands of ┬átourists that visit here to either start their trek on the famous Incan trail or catch the train direct to Machu Pichu. We were lucky enough to catch this shot of the mountain peaking through the clouds right before sunset, so felt compelled to throw it up.
