"Machu Picchu Hike" Machu Picchu Tip by kucha

Machu Picchu, Cusco: 28 reviews and 42 photos

For more details, please see my travelogue. This amazing archeological site was the perfect culmination of a 3-5 day Inca Trail hike. Your porters will probably be sure you get there at sunrise, which is the best light for photos and offers the fewest tourists clogging your camera lenses. The entire experience was truly exceptional. As you hike the tiny road through majestic mountains, you'll be transported to another time. Still, many people continue to live in these mountains today, in simple homes hours (by foot) away from the nearest neighbor.

Address: Mile 82 is the ususal start spot -- outside Cusco

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
