Awesome. Possum. That about describes it ! Half way up to the Dead Woman's Pass you start to question your life choices. But once you get to the Sun Gate, it's totally worth it.
We had an awesome group. Lots of fun and jokes ! Great hike and a lot of laughs in the camps at the end of the day. Zumba by the river. Cards and cards and tea and the best food I've had in South America. Seriously. Was not expecting such things on the Inca Trail .
Great guide that added to the fun ! Schooled us all in cards. Took selfies with llamas of course and tried kissing them... well not really. Seeing Machu Picchu for the first time is unreal. Worth climbing the stairs. Do it. The Inca Trail and the whole nine yards. The sissy train is cheating.
