Puyupatamarca or Phuyupatamarca is an archaeological site along the Inca Trail[1] in the Urubamba Valley of Peru. Due to its altitude of roughly 3600 meters,[2] it is known as "La Ciudad entre la Niebla" ("The City Above the Clouds").[3] It contains Inca ruins, with five small stone baths which during the wet season contain constant fresh running water.[4]
