... This ruin posed a real challenge as it is required to climb around 250 steps to get to the top where there are some ceremonial altars.

We toured through markets in Miraflores ...
... have to make a decision based on online reviews and prioritizing what's important to you. They all essentially offer the same 4 day trek to Machu Picchu. Some are a little longer or include extras like a tour of Cusco. Some are ridiculously overpriced (G Adventures, that reference was for you!) and some seem too cheap to believe that the porters are in fact being paid a fair wage. We were aiming for somewhere in the middle, with an emphasis on a unique experience. Most of you know ...
