One of the most amazing hikes we've done (it was a the top, now probably replaced by the Inca Trail): 14 kilometers from the top of the Dantercepies Lift (out of Selva), across the Altopiano del Puez, and then down into the Vallunga and back to Selva. More physically taxing than we thought, with a lot of climbing and then descending, but tremendously rewarding--with scenery that is out of this world. Not sure I've ever said "wow" that many times in one day.
