Machu Picchu

A travel blog entry by amdouet


Welcome back! It's Machu Picchu day! Another Early Morning Wake up call was at 4:30, breakfast at 5, in line at the bus station by 5:30. Apparently there were a lot of people who wanted the sunrise tour as there was a long line for the buses. Thankfully that early in the morning the buses are just running continuously. They fill them up and send them off. We were on a bus by 6 and at Machu Picchu by 6:30. It was already getting light out, and I was ...

We are going to have to run for it...again

... by me, but where is Graham? As we speed down the stall-lined alley lined with colourful stalls I look out for Graham, but he is nowhere to be seen. Now what? I am at the station, with no husband, no bags, no booking conifrmation for the train and not much money. On the road ahead a familar figure still running.

A travel blog entry by lucieinsa


Lee has finally arrived (yay!) and we've spent the last week doing the Salkantay trek, finishing up at Machu Picchu. It was tough but well worth it.

Day 1

At the hostel front door at 6am. Picked up by the tour operator in a minibus then on to collect the other hikers. There are six of us in total - Denise and Albert from LA, Arish and Meera from India. On to Mollepata for breakdast then another drive up to Soray Pampa where we start our hike.

A travel blog entry by beardandblonde


... Trail? Me neither. It wasn't until the next morning, after being picked up at 4:30 from central Cusco, we first met the life blood of the entire operation; the porters. These local chaps are employed to carry everything one may need over a four day period; our clothes, sleeping bags and tents (big up to Noelle who shouldered her 60 litre backpack the entire trek). They also transported the kitchen tent, utensils and food, their tents and equipment; the list is ...

Salkantay trek - 4 days on the way to Machu Picchu

A travel blog entry by reframed.abroad


... started our way to the top to visit the most familiar icon of Inca civilization at 2,430m altitude which is one of the new seven wonders of the world. After 2000 steps, 400m more altitude, a lot of sweat and 40 minutes ascending, I waited for the rest of the group and our guide to get a 2 hour tour like a proper tourist.

Interesting facts:
It took around 100 years to build this city (starting around 1450), inhabited around ...
