We Conquered Huayna Picchu

8 Day Peru Itinerary

No words can describe what we found at the end of this long trail. Please be prepared to lace up the hiking boots and go on a journey to experience the wonders of nature and deep history of Peru.

A great balance of culture and adventure.

Anywhere does an amazing job of linking their customers to an agent who is very familiar with the culture, history, food, language, art, and the activities of a country. We were pleasantly surprised by the small tourist town of Aguas Calientes that is surrounded by tall jungle-covered mountains. We stayed at Adina Principal Hotel, and fell asleep listening to the soothing sound of the river flowing right outside our window!

The highlight of this journey...

When we told people that we were going to hike up Huayna Picchu, they told us that we were crazy. People did not believe me when we told them that we had a guide going with us up the mountain. Well, we did it!...It was worth it! We enjoyed beautiful views of the jungle-covered mountains high above the valley, and the hidden Inca ruins tucked away in the cliffs of the mountain. The guide was very helpful, knowledgeable, and truly cared for our well-being. He even shared his energy providing snacks with us as we slowly climbed up the stairs.

Why we’ll be coming back to Peru...

Peru is a very safe and welcoming destination. Though, this is a touristy place to visit because of the world recognized Machu Picchu, Cusco, and surrounding Inca archaeological zones, it still has the "old Spanish colonial" feel and style with just the right mix of Inca influence via the current local indigenous people of Peru. This is an adventure for the adventurous spirit and not for the people who want to sit in the sun and sip on an umbrella garnished cocktail. Please be prepared to lace up your hiking boots and hit a trail which will lead one on a journey to experiencing the wonders of nature and Peru's deep history.
