The Inca Trail: An Experience worth the effort!

The Inca Trail was a great experience for me in general even though it had its ups and downs. The big downside was the altitude sickness that I got on the second day when climbing the never ending staircases of Dead Woman´s Pass. Aside from that, powering through was definitely worth it, not only for Machu Picchu itself but also ... Continue Reading

reflecting on life on the Inca Trail

Coming to Cusco I was not entirely sure what to expect for my hike on the Inca trail. Prior to arriving at the Inca trail I had only done minor day hikes in moderately challenging terrain. Because of this I truly appreciate the advice given by the tour advisors and the Inca Trail Reservations website regarding what equipment to bring ... Continue Reading

Inca trail excursion

The Inca trail excursion was probably one of the most rewarding yet strenuous adventures of my life!
Despite being what I consider pretty fit, the altitude was something that I was not prepared for. The first day on the trail was smooth sailing. We saw some amazing sites and got to camp closed to dusk. The food was ... Continue Reading

I soon got on a bus with 16 other hikers – a nice welcoming family from ... Continue Reading
