Allison There is a bus that will drive you up the mountain to Machu Picchu. And a lunch spot on a terrace that provides a spectacular view of the surrounding mountains. The site itself has all sorts of trails and staircases but they are not strenuous. I took some altitude accomodation meds before and after the trip there. My two group mates did not - one got a headache for which he drank large amounts of coca tea and the other was fine.

It is truly a spectacular place. We arrived in the rain and mist and walked around and it was like being transported into some other magical realm. I suffer from vertigo so was able to lose my group and walked around by myself just feeling the vibes. Amazing!


Living life simply and slowly is my goal now
