The Inca trail is a long ancient journey through the mountain passes of the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu, the ruins of an important Incan city right up in the mountains. It took us four days to walk from the start of the trail to Machu Picchu. We had help from a team of porters who carried our tents, sleeping bags and spare clothes so we only had to carry a small bag of things we’d need during the day. They also cooked us delicious three course meals! Though they were carrying packs that were taller than they were, they ran the trail effortlessly. They were amazing people. We climbed up and down the steep mountain passes, walking through cloud and jungle, passing other ruins on our route. There were an awful lot of steps and it was very challenging but the beautiful views and the sight of Machu Picchu at the end made it all worth it!
