Somehow this pictures lost quite a bit of quality in the process of putting them up.

Still this are some of my favourite pictures from machu picchu itself.

    • It sure is! I highly recomend it! if you get the chace, take the time to walk there – the views are breayh taking! I did the Salkantay, but the most famous one is the Inca trail which you need to book with 6 monthe in advance

  1. Thank you for the inspiration! I’ve been working on my personal fitness lately, and only one thing has kept me inspired and motivated. In 2-3 years, I plan to take a trip to Machu Picchu, and hopefully hike the Inca trail. Your photos have motivated me even more – they are amazing!

    • That is such a good compliment!
      I am really glad this photos inspired you to keep going!
      I did not do the Inca trail, I trekked the Slakantay one – which was amazing! The Inca trail, must be even better!
      I hope you really enjoy your trip!
