"Landslide!" Peru Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Jmon

Peru Warnings and Dangers: 149 reviews and 96 photos


If you are looking at this in 2006, please be aware that there was a lanslide that wiped out the Inca Trail right before you reach Machu Picchu. So until it is fixed, you can not hike directly into the site. Although this was somewhat disappointing for us on the 4 day hike, it would practically ruin the two day hike. The are working to reopen the trail, but it may be a few months. You can see the landslide over my shoulder in the picture. This only underscores how fragil this incredible site is...
