Salkantay trek to Macchu Picchu

Thursday, 10 Oct 2013 | Views [491]

We left Cuzco at 5am to join the trek to Macchu Picchu.  Starting at Sayllapata (altitude 3300m), we climbed to Soraypampa (3700m) to set up camp.  I was so nervous I'd be the most unfit and not cope with the altitude, but luckily Damian ... Read more >

These are the remains of the sun and moon temples (that´s what archaeologists call every Inca building here). There are the remains of a third large structure but having run out of large objects in the sky, they´re calling that another moon temple. ... Read more >

Arriving in Cuzco was great after the jungle, a white washed city full of tourists and nice looking restaurants.  We bought a 10 day tourist ticket, which is a bit of a waste of money, as we did get a bit sick of Inca Ruins after doing 4 in one ... Read more >

Iquitos and the Amazon Rainforest

Thursday, 3 Oct 2013 | Views [435]

We made a bit of a mistake here.  We should have gone to Iquitos from Chachapoyas (via Tarapoto) which would have saved us some money, but the books are not very clear, so we didn't realise the flights stop on route from Lima.  So we went all ... Read more >

Huanchaco, Peru

This is a brilliant little fishing town just north of Trujillo.  We ended up staying here for 6 days as it was so relaxing.  The local fishermen use boats that look like large surf boards made out of reeds to fish in the shallow water. ... Read more >

We would not have bothered with this route had we known how long it took in advance.  It took most of the day, starting very early, a bus, a taxi, a border crossing, a combi (taxi for the first four people to arrive) and then another larger minibus ... Read more >
