The Inca Trail was one of the most challenging and beautiful treks I've ever experienced.
Day three of the four day trek was gorgeous ! The farming terraces were breathtaking and so inspirational. Heading into the jungle from the top of the mountains was magical. Our guide, Carlos, shared a wealth of knowledge about Inca culture, and all the porters really made the experience special and enjoyable.
I absolutely recommend the Inca Trail for anyone in good physical condition looking for a more authentic experience than just taking a bus and seeing Machu Picchu along side so many tourists. It was not easy so be prepared and pack light !
