It was a once in a lifetime experience. Everyone needs to do the Trail before seeing Machu Picchu! My favorite part was day three.
The hike after lunch up through the mountains was beautiful. I also discovered that I lost my debit card before the trip and our guide was very helpful in finding points where I could contact my bank and get help. The hike itself is quite tiring but the views are definitely worth the trouble.
I will never forget my experience hiking the trail and am lucky our guide and porters were so helpful along the way.
