Inca Trail 4 day Trek to Machu Picchu

We are booked on to the Inca Trail beginning 15 May 2006, so we will be arriving in Cucso on 13 May. The Inca Trail is a walking route that leads through the mountains above the Urumbamba river, following the course of an old Inca roadway leading to the city of Machu Picchu. The appeal of this particular trek is the stunning combination of Inca ruins, magnificent mountains, exotic vegetation and extraordinary ecological variety. The trail goes over high passes with unforgettable views, through cloud forest, and finally into subtropical vegetation. The maximum height above sea level along the way is 4200 m... It is not for the faint hearted so I have been told but we have each bought a third of a porter each to carry some kit so we can enjoy the scenery and pack more food!

Day 01: Cusco to Wayllabamba (12km)
Day 02: Wayllabamba to Pacamayo (12km)
Day 03: Pacamayo to Wiñay Wayna (15km)
Day 04: Wiñay Wayna to Machu Picchu (5km), Return to Cusco: Train

Only 48hrs til you set off and by hook or by crook I'm first to log in this book.

Wishing you both a fantastic time looking for Nobby. Hope he's as fit as he looks in the photo!!

Amber please make John wear a hat on the Inca trail as you won't be able to carry him!

Send us lots of info please.
Loads of love,
Mary, John, Charlotte and James xxxx
P.S Please make J clean his ears weekly

hi hun
Glad to hear that you are having a fabulous time. It sounds like its a mix of all your favourite, wine, food, pretty things to look at and good chat. Hope you are coping with the limited clothing options- been looking at the photos and you seem to seem managing so far. Nothing to report at this end- had a fab time in barcelona, redundancy now moved to end of July, James fine.
take care of yourself
