Hiking The Inca Trail To Machu Picchu - After months of planning and over a year of dreaming about it, I finally got on a bus from Arequipa to go to Cusco to hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. We were supposed to be there a couple of days early so they could acclimatize but Milana's flight from Lima was cancelled so she arrived about noon the day before our tour started. I had already met Karen the day before and we had gotten to know each other a bit as we did some sightseeing and hiking together near Cusco.

High Altitude Mountain Biking - One day, James, a friend of mine here in Cotahuasi, Peru, approached me and asked a favor. He said he was putting on a large mountain bike tour the beginning of May. He had asked for my help in checking out a potential route across the high plain to Charcana, as I was familiar with part of the route.

Trekking Machu Picchu: the Inca Trail and Other Trek Routes - Discovered only in 1960, the Inca Trail is part of the more than 23,000 km of roads built by the Incas across South America. It crosses a remarkable range of natural landscapes and eco-systems, from thick tropical jungle to the bear, unwelcoming rocks of the Andean mountains. It is indisputably Peru's most popular trekking route and, all in all, probably the most beautiful walk in South America.
