Bloody outstanding. Paul, our guide was a fair dinkum larrikin. He could spin a great yarn and kept all us folk giggling like schoolgirls for 5 days. Day 1 hike was pretty laid back until we got to camp after a few hours of leisurely trekking and meeting new mates. Then we did the optional hike up this huge hill to a glacier lake. It was rough, the baby cows were screaming and I reckon my head looked like a beaten favorite when I made the top. The view was worth every bit though. A few of us decided to take the plunge in the icy water which was as cold as a witch.... But refreshing.

Day 2 was big. 10 hours of hiking but nice views along the way. At the highest point of Apu Salkantay I was sucking in seagulls but recovered with a good feed for lunch. I was pretty stoked with seeing an avalanche and condors.... Those have big wings. Days 3 and 4 weren't as tough and the jungle heat made hiking more bearable. Now on night 4, the eve of Machu Picchu and having a feed and a thousand beers. Looking forward to seeing a heap of big rocks on a hill tomorrow and a llama or two. Cheers Inca Trail Reservations .
