After a grueling second day, when you go with Llama Path as your tour guides, the third day is relatively easy and short. I think it was about 5 miles and took just a few hours. The 3rd day was my favorite day by far. We started high up in the Andes and wondered through the cloud forest. This post will mostly be pictures from the Inca Trail.


After spending a few days in Lake Titicaca¬†and Cusco it was finally time to start our hike to Machu Picchu. We weren’t sure what to expect. We had heard a million different stories and opinions about the difficulty of the hike. When I first got to Peru my only concern was the altitude, but I hadn’t had problems in Lake Titicaca which was higher, so I became more and more confident as the days got closer.
