Machu pichu is for tourists !

The best is obviously the trek itself ! You walk for 4 days in tough conditions but it's clearly worth it. The highlights are the second and third days which are the toughest ones as you feel that you push your limits a little.
I would have hated Machu Picchu without the trek as it is well too touristy ... Continue Reading

This trip has been on my bucket list for a long time. My wife of a year and I decided to come for our anniversary. Being from Florida (elevation sea level), we were not prepared for the altitude. The second day of the hike was the toughest for us as we approached the summit of Dead Woman's Pass. Each step ... Continue Reading
