Machu Picchu is breath taking for sure, but the journey there is even more amazing. Inca Trail Reservations does a great job making this trek fun and memorable. The guides exceed every expectation. The food is delicious, but I do wish there was more protein for muscle recovery.
The camps they chose are ideal. Be prepared to be challenged and rewarded at every turn. Lastly, it would have been nice of our Inca Trail person to inform us of the Huyanapicchu experience. My friend and I really wanted to do this and other agents had recommended it.
