Sooo we spend a lot of time at this great building, walking to the Inka-Bridge where we saw crazy steps in the mountains and just relaxing like all the other people.
Walking down and grabbing the train 🚂 at 7pm for driving 2 hours to a town where we get picked up by a car 🚗 and then driving 2 hours more back to Cusco.
Again early wake up at 3:45 for walking up to the Machu 🌿because the doors for walking opens at 5am and there were almost 50 people waiting till we arrived at 5am.
Walking 1 hour and 15minutes up the Inka-steps and met our guide waiting at the top for a tour.
After this we take some snacks for breakfast with a beautiful view.

Oooh but before we take lunch in Hydroelectric we took a short bus ride 🚌 and then we walk the 3hours 🛤 to the last stop before Machu 🌿
Seeing the ruins from the camino 🚶🏽

Such a nice place in this Aguas Thermales in Cocalmayo next to our Camping Area ⛺️ in Santa Theresa 🎅👩.
Hot tubes 🛀 in the middle of the mountains letting all the walking-bones-muscles relaxing with this warm water 💦😌
After this we take our tea-time and an hour later our dinner 🍴
At 6am we took breakfast 🍳 which was nice with omelette and chocolate-cake and we realized that we can eat more that the day before 😍
Walking just 5 hours this day with breaks, seeing a lot of fruits on trees 🌲 and getting a bus transporting for our lunch spot.
Next transportation to our campsite ⛺️ where we arrived at 14:30.
Our guide is watching Champions League right now 😅 🇮🇹 1:1 🇪🇸 so we drive to the aguas thermales at 16o'clock.

The hardest day isn't over so walking 4 hours to the campingspot ⛺️ was exhausting and most of the time the same landscape.
But arriving at the camp at 5 we took a cold shower 🚿 and get a tea-time and an hour later dinner 🍴on only 2900m.
From the high mountain area we were walking slowly into the jungle and this night was warm. (For us two the night before wasn't that cold because of our sleeping-bags from Argentina 🇦🇷 which fits together 🛌🎈
Sure, after getting up you had to get down and you realize that going down is more shiddy then up 😅🚶🏽
Eating the lunch after 2hours going down on 4000m. Your stomach doesn't work that well on this altitude but it's ok.
Again the weather changes very fast and we had luck with the fog.
Finally after 3 and a half hours we got it to the highest point of the trek. On 4600m with great views in every direction with a lot of coca-healthyness in the body.
A Peruvian walk the Mount Everest without Oxygen.
At 5am the cook 👨🍳 came with a coca-tea ☕️ to our tent for waking us up.
Slowly up the mountain to the Abra Salkantay Glacier (yesterday it was another one)
Breathing is hard and walking even harder. Slowly we walk and walk with other people, carry-horses and this awesome nature 🗻

After lunch at 3900m we take a walk to a nice Lagune right in front of the Glacier.
Walking one hour only up and up and up up to 4300m which was hard but really worth it 👌😏🤗
Going down is really easy, i thing the whole body knows he's going down 👌
The fog comes 5minutes after visiting the Lagune.
After this cold 4300m we drink a hot tea ☕️ and hot chocolate 🍫 at our campsite with popcorn and some crackers 🍿.
An hour later eating dinner and sleeping soon, because the next day will be hard.
So the map is really well made 🗺 and you see where we were in Peru 😃✌️😬
And for the last thing 🇵🇪 we walk to Machu Picchu ⛰ the Salkantay Trek booked by the same company as for the rainforest #quechua
First day at 5am we get a pick up at the hostel and drive 2hours to a small village where we eat our breakfast which we brought by ourselves. 🍞 🥑
One hour more driving on top of some mountains we arrived at the starting point for walking.
Only a daypack we have to carry and started to walk for 2hours and arrived at the camping area ⛺️ where we had lunch 🍴.
