Machu Picchu has been for a long time a destination I wanted to visit. What a better way than to get there than by the Inca Trail . I had done some research on the internet and talked with a few friends of mine who had done the Inca Trail in the past. In general, I couldnâ€™t see a reason why I shouldnâ€™t go on the Inca Trail. I decided to book my ticket and go ahead with this plan.
Overall, the Inca Trail was an awesome experience. We had an amazing group, a knowledgeable guide, helpful porters and cooks and we had great fun all along the way!
Throughout the trek, we visited many Inca sites, out of which some were out of our normal route, for instance Intipata. However, it was definitively worthwhile. Talk about a nice feeling being on the highest point of the trek at Dead WomanÂ´s Pass. Itâ€™s nice to catch your breath and feel like you are on the top of the world with the rest of your group.
I would recommend the Inca Trail trek to whoever wants to have a challenge. I will admit it was not an easy task, but the people you meet, the sites you visit, and the feeling of accomplishment make the trek such a good experience! And what a good way to finish a trek by visiting Machu Picchu, such a mysterious and beautiful ancient city ruins!
