We will be at Machu Picchu in January and are planning to do the hke up Huayna Picchu. My husband thinks we would be better off doing the later hike as the fog may have lifted. I think it would be better to do the early hike as there will be less people.
We are staying at the Sanctuary so it would not be a problem to be on time for the early hike.
I would appreciate your thoughts on doing the trail with first group out, or with the later group.
Before going to Macchu Picchu, where should I start my tour or spend a few days so as to try and avoid altitude sickness? Is January an ok time to visit Peru, Macchu Picchu and do a short Amazon cruise, or is it just too wet? (I'm from Australia).
I stumbled across this place suring research and it sounds fantastic. The only problem is, it is so far off the beaten path that it seems like you can only do on a tour to get to it. Has anyone been to it? If so, how did you get to it and was it worth it? Most tours seem to suggest that you hike for three or four days out of Cuzco and get to it and somehow get a bus back. That would lead me to wonder whether you can get transport out and back. I will have only limited time and 4 days of trekking will make it impossible. Cheers in advance for any help.
