Day Five - Hiking an Incan Trail

After a night camping out, we were treated to breakfast al fresca complete with a birthday cake in honor of one our fellow travelers. Then it was off to the jumping off point for a hike on one of the old Incan Trails. The view along the trail was once again spectacular. As before, I'm impressed by the Incans – they were able to carve trails on the sides of steep mountains. You can see the remnants of these trails throughout the Sacred Valley running along the tops and sides of the ridges. We stopped at a small village for a refreshing lunch (including much needed cold drinks!). After finishing a pretty tiring hike, we boarded the van for the ride into Santa Teresa. We stayed at the EcoQuechua hotel where some us of had a very delightful and refreshing bath in the river.
