Arriving in Machu Picchu

Finally we arrived at Machu Picchu – and it is just as spectacular as in the photos. We also climbed up Waynu Picchu, which was steep, but not too bad until the very last bit where it is definitely pretty hairy. For me, anyway; Ceu (Mountain Goat) seemed to be just fine with it!

Again, the weather was fantastic. During the daytime we were hiking in sunshine with T-shirts. At night it went down to a few degrees above freezing. We had frost one morning. In the distance we could see glaciers and snow in the highest peaks, over 5,500 meters.
