First time in Peru and i tackled the hardest hike I've ever done. Trained for 6 months at sea level and hoped that i wouldn't die on the mountains.
Started at low altitude by the river and slowly worked my way to the peak. I didn't get altitude sickness, break ankle, or die! Plus there was great food, entertaining stories, a fun guide, lots of rum, and a cake at the end!.
The views were amazing (of both the ruins and the night sky). Now i can cross Machu Picchu off my bucket list. Would absolutely recommend this trip.
Next up Salkantay !.
