Did the 4 day hike back when it wasn't so touristy. Hear it's getting very overrun by tourists....

Macchu PIcchu gets 5 stars, and the masses of tourists get 2 stars. Impressive and beautiful, but looks like it's becoming a real tourist trap.

Much more enjoyable hanging out up at the Sun Gate and watching folks (especially the porters) come through.

Amazing views of high forest. Makes you wonder what else is hiding out undiscovered.
