"ln every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks." One of the most amazing experiences in my life, done guided alongside people I had volunteered in a school with prior. Incredible views, amazing high altitude peaks to be in awe of, challenging climbs and a journey that makes you feel like you have truly earned the beauty of Machu Picchu at the end of it. (note: done in Nov 2019)

Amazing hike. Should be on everyone's bucket list. Went in November, few hours of drizzle each day but otherwise not too bad, cold at night and warm during the day. Loved every second of it.

Did this trail in November. Definitely pack for cold and rainy (hail) weather if you decide to go during this time. The views were amazing. If you're visiting and are not used to the elevation, stay at least 3 days in the city before your trip to give your body time to adjust. Other than that, pack lightly, stay on the trail and enjoy!

Most difficult hike I've completed! Very friendly people, beautiful hike- I got altitude sickness on the way back down. Coca leaves don't help.

Definitely hike the mountain first aka inca stair master. It's paved all the way and exposed to sunlight, but so bring plenty of water, and no bathrooms as well. Enjoy lunch and make you're way back to explore the rest of the site. You can by the time you're done, and all crowds will have left, and but if you take too long some areas may be closed off already.

I hiked this in March. Was a hard hike because of how high the altitude was . The majority of the hike wasn’t as steep until you get to the bottom of the summit and that’s where it becomes challenging. But worth it.

Awesome trail with amazing views. I was not in the best condition during this hike and managed to get to the top without paying the 60 soles for a horse ride. Although the elevation makes it difficult, you will be rewarded with beautiful views and a sense of accomplishment when you reach the top!

Steep Hike with switchbacks, but definitely worth the view at the end. Could be very busy with the day trip crowds, so if you are there during early morning of anytime afternoon to evening you'll have the place practically to yourself. There is a store at the village if you'd like to stock up on snacks and food before making your way to the lake.

Absolutely perfect in every way! The views are amazing! Make sure you hang onto the handrail tight while walking to the Inca Bridge ;)

What a hike and what a view....hard but so beautiful. We went there super early and it was nice before all other people get there.

It was one of the hardest hike that I did in my life because of the elevation but so beautiful. I was there two years ago. Must go!

I don't really know where to begin. This was my first ever solo trek (without a guide). I did the 93 kilometers in 4 days. Ending in Aguas Calientes and getting to go up to Macchu Pichu was the cherry on top. This trek, all trail, takes you from the hilly agricultural plains of the Cusco surroundings to one of the most awe inspiring mountains I have ever laid eyes on (at 5400 meters alt.) This trek touched my soul and conjures up emotions I cannot begin to put on paper when I think of it. It is challenging. It is beautiful. It is a must for those who do not want to be restricted by the compulsory guided Inca Trail. It has everything one could hope for in a trek.

Best trek I’ve ever done, went in September 2019. Definitely can be dangerous (narrow, slippery, ice and rain, etc) so make sure you have the gear. Absolutely loved it and recommend to everyone. There are tour groups you can go with which I think is safer if you don’t speak Spanish and it can get confusing where to go. We certainly veered right off what looked like the path multiple times so I’m glad we had a guide. By the time you get to Machu Picchu on day 4 or 5 you’ve seen so many beautiful things that you think it won’t feel as spectacular as the trek but that the trek itself was worth it. Then you actually go up from Aguas Calientes to see it and it just fills you with wonder. There is almost a magnetic energy that just fills you up. Would do again.

Simply amazing! I enjoyed my hike to the Rainbow Mountains with Minka Peru Expedition. It was a dream come true. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. https://www.minka-peru.com/rainbow-mountain-trek-cusco

Did this hike solo in late September. Started from Mollepata though not shown on this map. Look for the goat trail past the Church pretty much vertical climb with a irrigation stream on the left side of the trail. The trail isn’t well marked and there are some gates you have to pass through. Eventually you will come to a road that you follow to the north. This will take you to the marked portion of the trail where the tours start their hike to soraypampa. From there it’s well marked. This map looks like it follows the road to La Playa but there is a crossing and a trail on the other side of the Santa Teresa River. There is a bridge that is under construction in La Playa you need to cross to get back over to the trail. From there it’s easy to find the trail to Llactapata it’s right off the road. Look for avocados on the road! I found the largest avocado ever!! Camp at the over look not the camp sight of you can...nothing like waking up overlooking Machu Picchu!
