On top of Machu Picchu
26.01.2013 - 27.01.2013 16 °C
Unfortunately (or fortunately) Aine had a tummy bug for the week leading up to our arrival in Cusco so we decided not to do the 4 day hike and opted for a 2 day tour of the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. The tour of the Sacred Valley took us to the ancient city of Ollantatambo where we got a feel for what the Incas were capable of.
On the same day we got the train to Aquas Callientes (located at the base of Machu Picchu) as there are is no access by road although there are roads in and around the town of Aquas Calientes. At 5am we got up to get the bus up the unnaturally steep and windy road. We arrived as . It was too steep for me to even consider.
Words can not adequately describe this place so we won't bother!!!! Enjoy the pics....
