Hi - My wife and I went on an Exodus Peru trip last October which included the last stage of the Inca Trail (Down Inca steps to Winay Wayna and Machu Picchu). The whole holiday was an amazing experience and very well organised.
A member of our Group coincidentally met someone he knew who had just completed the Inca Trail who said that it was the most challenging experience he has had - having over the years taken part in many triathalons / marathons.
Good luck and have a great time...we are off to Chile and Easter Island this year .....
Hi - I believe this trip is now fully booked up so calling all travellers going on the Inca trail on 16th November!! I booked it a while ago but haven't even looked through the trip notes or kit list yet so I think I need to do that pretty soon and get a few hills under my belt too! I went away with Exodus on a solo travellers trip to Italy in April, had a fantastic time, but the walking wasn't too hard. I think I'm going to need to get some training in for this one, having read Angelo's comments! I did some walking at altitude about 3 years ago, Himalayas, and found it OK once I got acclimatised, but I'd done a fair bit of training, unlike this year. Anyway, look forward to hearing from you all, Kath x x
hi guys not long now less than 8 weeks to go now, cant wait to meet you all,,,bring on the cocoa tea mmmm x
We didn't take any altitude sickness tablets. Suffered a bit with headaches before Manchu Pichu while we aclimatised traveling through the various altitudes during the first week of the tour - the worst being on the island on Titicaca. Some in the group suffered sickness but in the main this was limited to a day.
There's loads on the web about this but thought it useful to let you know our exerience on last year's trip. Am sure you'll have a great time.
Well my kit bag just arrived - 22 days to go and not even thought about it all yet. Got to do 9 days in Dubai with work between now and then too....Looks like I'll be packing the night before as usual. Still access to decent gym everyday for 10 days so loads of incline work on the treadmill incoming....
Calum - it says we depart from T3 on the latest paperwork so make sure you check out the easiest way to get between terminals! You should have plenty of time as long as things are generally on schedule :)
OK everyone....I thought I was sorted but now am questioning everything I've packed! But first... what time are you all planning to check in, do we need to go for the 3 hour long haul (3.40pm) or as we're only hopping to Madrid to start with can we do 2 hours? Main reason I'm asking really is what time shall we try and meet up in O'Neills???!!!!
Also...I realised that everything I've packed is pretty much layers of walking gear, do we need something 'nice' to wear for eating out in Cuzco? And is anyone clued up about the likely weather situation when we're not trekking i.e. do we just need jumpers & fleeces or summer tops and t-shirts? The weather reports I've seen are all over the place!
I have done some travelling before...honest...but I always start to convince myself I've got all the wrong stuff at the last min :) Can't wait to meet you all, getting v giddy now, just got to try and concentrate as I'm 'working from home' topday (can you tell??!!) Kath x
HI CALUM YOU DO KNOW ITS TERMINAL 3 DONT YOU,,,
Sorry to have left it so late but just wanted to say hi and see you all tomorrow for a great trip. Will be getting to Heathrow around 15:30 and soon as bag is away will make my way to O'Neills:) Now better start on the packing......
