Into the Sacred Valley of the Incas!

A travel blog entry by friesendm


... even so, we received our first sample of religious art produced by native or mestizo (mixed blood) anonymous artists.

The walk to the Moray Terraces was filled with spectacular views of the mountains. The timing of our arrival coincided with the rare intersection of recent rains, which dropped snow in the mountains even higher above us at 18,000 feet, and clear blue skies testifying to the end of the rainy season. This is ...

Cuzco, Lake Titicaca & the Inca Trail

A travel blog entry by franmullineux


... we had made it. It was then a short 10 minute walk uphill before we could see the Sun Gate. Arriving at the Sun Gate and looking out over Macchu Picchu was....emotional. I think Ruli was somewhat disappointed that we didn't say very much, but if everybody else felt as I did, then they were probably too emotional to say anything. At the start of the trek Ruli had told us that what we were doing was a pilgrimage rather than simply a walk on the basis that if we had just wanted to ...

We finished up day 1 at a campsite called Wallybamba (altitude 3000m) near a bunch of farms and some small inca ruins. We arrived at about 5pm and had some free time to wander around before another amazing ...

Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu

A travel blog entry by rhea_


... before heading back. By this time however, there were definitely a few members feeling tipsy and the drive back in the bus was a journey that still makes me smile. We were all in the mini van, with one of the Brazilian guys up front plugging in his own music to the hifi and began to play the song that became the mantra of the trip ``ayyiyyiyay, me gusta la fiesta, don`t stop the partay!``. People got torches and phones to make disco lights in the van as we listening to ...
