This was a great experience for a norwegian mountaineer. The first day was the hardest, the next days had all kinds of weather which is normal for the time of year. the walk was topped off with fantastic sunshine walking from the sun gate down to Machu Pichu. The guiding was superb ,the food and sleeping quarters as well thanks to Juan carlos, the cook and five dedicated porters. Many thanks to a great support team. The only criticism is the one and a half hour wait at the gate at four in the morning 100 meters from our tent place.
