Such a great experience ! I would recommend everyone to walk the Inca Trail before visiting Machu Picchu. Beautiful views, though trekking, great Peru history, a lot of rain and much fun ! I had not expected the trail to be this hard, and I cannot describe how happy I am for my squat-work out before going to Peru.
The food was amazing and the whole crew was super friendly. Arriving to Machu Picchu in the morning after 3 days trek was an amazing experience. I have seen all the Maya & Aztec ruins and still I was very impressed. Simply beautiful ! Hugs from Denmark.
