One of the best experiences of my life, made by the picturesque route, and the brilliant guide (Juan Carlos). As amazing as Machu Picchu was, it was equalled by the sites of the trail one shouldn't be done without the other.
The porters did their job fantastically and made the trip so easy for those on the trek. Their contribution is only appreciated when you see how hard they work.
Food was ok only downside was breakfast, which wasn't quite enough considering the hard work during the day (this shouldn't be under estimated - you should be prepared for a hard day's trekking every day).
An unforgettable experience that was worth every penny. Many friends made, and a wonder of the world ticked off the bucket list.
