Photographer's Note

This is Manchu Picchu "The lost city in the clouds"

The altitude was about 3500meters so its hard work walking and breathing but as you can hopefully see from this photo, its well worth it.

More Info- You can book up on the Inka trail while you are in Cusco but you will need upto four days to aclimatise to the high altitude and two days for the trail company to organise things.
the Cheapest company I seen for the four day trek was 180 USD and the most expensive was about 280USD, I paid 220USD and the service was perfect.
Remember the 4 day Inka trail which starts at the 83k mark is closed for repair and cleaning in febuary.
