inca trail & machu pichu
Machu Travel Blog› entry 3 of 4 › view all entries
i don't think my words would do either the fantastic Inca trail or Machu Pichu justice so i'm just going to let the photos do the talking. I will say that anyone thinking of going to Machu Pichu should definately do the Inca trail if they can because it's fantastic and a great build up for Machu Pichu, and gives you chance to appreciate the whole Inca era much better. It is a fantastic trek through the Andies with magnificant views, but can be hard going, so be prepared and you will be rewarded!!!!!! And then take the enchanting train which snakes through the mountains back to Cusco. This is rated as 1 of the best train journeys in the world and its difficult to argue having done it! If you plan on climbing Huayna Pichu for another perspective you need a godd head for hights and need to be pretty sure footed as it's pretty narrow with steep drops to get up and down it, the views though are excellant.
To see Machu pichu without millionsof people sprawling all over it your best to get to the sungate late afternoon when its much more peacefull and you can take the photo of it as you want.
