Among the most beautiful landscapes I have ever meet, the mountains between Cusco and Machu Picchu are on my top list. Places like this picture only who walk miles away with altitude ranging from 2 to 4.6 meters high can appreciate. In the up’s and downs It took my breath away for 2 reasons: beauty and the air missing.
Driving to Chicama at the midway. The path is a moonscape desert, sometimes some vegetation, high mountains touching the clouds with lots of rocks and boulders. The mountains close to the roads have big stones that can’t roll, because there is no rain, wind or storms in this place.
After almost 3 days walking and no shower at all, we found a waterfall with hot volcanic water. Perfect to relax and renew our energies, we still had 2 days ahead of us. In the pic, the Peruvian guide who led the way, he does it every week.
