We took the train to walk the Inca Trail. There was a lot of climbing steps to make it to Machu Picchu. It was a great experience with many wonderful sights along the trail. Well worth the effort!

Having a day to hike the Inca Trail from Km 104 to Machu Picchu was wonderful - just the right length! The scenery is gorgeous, and we learned so much along the way.

The tour of the Inca Trail is a once in a lifetime experience. From the unspoiled beauty of the landscape to the challenge of climbing ancient rock stairs built by the Incan's this trip will be one that you will look back on fondly.

This truly is the only way to see Machu Picchu - by the time you arrive, you truly understand the significance and the journey. If you are in good physical shape, you should definitely make the trek versus taking the train.

We hiked the trail with Alpaca Expeditions - great time! They took care of all the arrangements and we really got lucky on weather (last week of May). It is a hard hike - but well worth it!
