This four day hike was what I expected and more. Being from Colorado in the US, I've grown up hiking my whole life. This was a totally different experience. Tons of vegetation, amazing views, and hard work for an amazing payoff.
The porters, food and accommodation/tents were comfortable and always well prepared for us at meal times and the end of each day. The famous Dead Woman's Pass was made so much more enjoyable by the porters friendliness.
The history of the Inca Trail was laid out for us beautifully and interestingly by our tour guide at every Inca site. Wahoo accomplishments !
