Favorite thing: Sunset from the Sun Gate. A place of immense energy. I travelled with a small group made up of people of different nationalities. Our guide, Fernando, was great. He had a genuine passion to everything Inca and the Flora and Fauna of the region.
Despite the bad publicity of the Inca Trail as one of the most hyped treks in the world, I would definately recommend anyone to do it. It's tough but extremely rewarding. Some of the scenes are simply breathtaking. If you anything like me, this trip is also a childhood wish and a kind of pilgramage. Very special!!

Fondest memory: Arriving at the Sun Gate at first light, a moving experience!
Walking on my own, bare footed in the streets of the old place. magical feeling. uplifting.
