Beautiful!

Can I ask, did you run into any other major challenges aside from physical endurance? Did you have to get any special vaccs or were you ever worried about your safety (from crime)?

Macchu Picchu is definitely on our dream “hit list” πŸ™‚

Seriously impressed. Ideally want to go to Manchu Picchu, but I’ll be taking the train πŸ™‚ 

I climbed the Great Wall of China – it has similar stairs to those “gringo killers”. awful. Awful awful. My knees were unhappy for weeks afterwards!

WOOHOO!!  Glad you made it and had a good time!  I agree with you on that trek being the toughest thing I’d ever done too, especially day 2.  I’m sort of shocked they still have day 2 being so long… we didnt’ get to camp until a bit past 7 also.

These photos are great! We’re headed to Machu Picchu, too, but we’re wussing out and taking a far less physically gruelling methold (train, I believe). It looks like you guys had a blast! Where did you stay once you got there?

Did you hit other parts of South America while you were south of the Equator?

@Benavis1489:  the Great Wall is really really amazing, but its harder than you think it will be (or at least it was for me). I never thought about the fact that to get to the Great Wall, you have to climb to the top of the mountain first!  there are actually Chinese locals who’s job is to walk with you and carry your stuff to the top for you since it’s steep and long. But soooooooo worth it once you get to the top! And it was a big accomplishment for me as I have had 2 knee surgeries and have a ton of metal holding my left knee together πŸ™‚ I’m hankful I did the trip 13 years ago; I don’t think I could do it now!
