Inca Trail

Maria Diamandi
After "brunch" we were at the beginning of the end of "Dead Woman's Pass". We hiked from 3100 meters to 4200 meters in only 12 km. It was a constant Stair Master plus the lack of oxygen at 4,000 meters (13,000 ft.) and not being fully acclimatized made this hike so difficult - almost unbearable for some people on the trail. The third day was the most enjoyable. A great balance of hills, stairs, ruins and weather.
