Day 1 - was the easiest! well so they said....in fact we just walked for about 4 hours to get to our camp....it wasn´t so bad.....great views of the mount veronica...
Day 2 - The hardest day....6/7 hours of walking up!! We left camp about 6am and began walking..at our own pace thankfully! I walked like a snail! slow.....It was hard going as we had to pass the highest pass of the entire treck....4100 metres then when you think it`s all over you have to desend to 3600 metres where our camp was....it was all down inca steps.....The inca´s loved their steps!!
Day 3 - It pissed it down all day....again we left early this time at 5am! to beat the crowds our tour guide told us!!! We started with about 1 1/2 hours uphill then over the second highest pass to desend down the inca steps again!!! Someone told me there were about 2500 steps!
Day 4 - The final day...We left at 5.30am to get to the sun gate beofre everyone else! about 1 hour of walking before we got our first look at Machu Picchu! And again up bloody inca steps to see it....from here it was all down hill..great!
Well worth the hike....I would recommend it to everyone....some tips though..get fit before!!!
