What a trip! Flora, Fauna, stunning scenery, and great guides: Paul and Jimmy. I was not prepared to be so impressed by such a beautiful country. Breathe taking scenic-rewards were earned through challenging terrain and difficult altitude difficult.
Highlights included the Cusco City Tour, historical sites around Cusco, and Paul's informative and hilarious commentary.
I highly recommend the optional 3 hour hike from day one base camp to Tucarhuay, a glacier lake, below Humantay Peak. AND most importantly....
D - dynamite trip
I - I got altitude mountain sickness (AMS)
A - alpaca steak
M - mountains
O - Ollantaytambo
X - marks the spot (I out of to say and Paul wants me to finish)
