Machu Pichu.....To hike or not to hike, that is the question.

Jump to last reply

My husband I enjoy the outdoors and hiking. Our last vacation was to Iceland, where we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.

I am in the VERY preliminary stages of considering a trip to Peru for either this summer or next summer and was wondering if the time it takes to hike to Machu Pichu is rewarded by the experience/scenery.... or, if it would be better to skip the hike and just visit the site... then do some other hiking in the area on less crowded trails.

What do you think?
