Didn't get great shots of Machu Picchu which was a bit devastating! 😏 This is so long I'll give my tip at the top, if visiting make sure your tour allows you to stay past midday, this will give the best chance of the weather clearing. Weather at this time of year is very unpredictable, over the 5 days and 70km trekking we experienced everything from blasting sun to hail. Unfortunately on Machu Picchu climb day from 4am, it rained solidly for the 1399 steps up and long after. Was it my most miserable experience ever?? Close, ha!
Then obv the whole mountain was in fog 😓 It was still amazing and visiting all the structures and learning about the site was fantastic. We were soooooo cold and soaked through, one of the girls in the groups lips were actually blue! We didn't know how long could wait for the fog to clear as we had a return bus to catch.
But then just before we left the clouds cleared in portions and though it didn't make for great pics we got to see the scale of the place and the magic of the mountains appearing and disappearing.
