The Inca Trail was awesome ! Yes, it was challenging with endless stair cases, steep climbs and not very flat "Inca flats", however, the hike was overall very rewarding. When you are surrounded by adventurous gringos representing various parts of the world who make the entire experience entertaining you almost forget about how many more stairs you have to climb !
The incredible views and historic ruins made the trek very rewarding. I can't forget to mention the amazing staff who made everything possible ! The cooks fed us phenomenally. The porters kept the whole trek running smoothly. Lastly, the guides kept the group positive, informed about the Inca history and most importantly, helped us reach Machu Picchu without getting lost.
