Machu Picchu - Peru
Visiting the ancient Inca city of Machu Picchu was one of the main motivations behind our recent visit to Peru. We opted to get there via the 4 day Inca trail, which starts close to the town of Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley of the Incas and ends in Machu Picchu, as opposed to taking the bus up from Aguas Calientes, the town at the foot of the mountain ridge. We started hiking at around 5.30am on the last day and got to the Sun Gate, in time to watch the first rays of sun lighting up Machu Picchu.
