Looking out over Ollantaytambo (Vicki Vandruff)
Last night we made the decision to alter our hike for today to include zip-lining. So rather, than hiking out of the campground, we grabbed a van and headed out. We walked about 20 minutes before finding the “base camp” for the zip-lines. We were harnessed up, given helmets and told we needed to take a short walk to get to the lines. It may have been short in distance, but it was almost straight up and the heat was unbearable. But, about 30 minutes later we reached our destination. We zipped across six lines, back and forth over the canyon and river. On the last line, the zip-line guide asked me if I wanted to go tandem with him and go upside down! And my answer…OMG YES!!! It was amazing and definitely one of the highlights of my trip. From there we hiked to the train station that took us to Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu City).
