Machu Picchu Adventure
Machu Picchu is 7970 ft.
Huayna Picchu, Peru, about 8920 ft.
I bought a tour package to Peru in November 1999. I was the only person on the tour. Most tours last a week, and depart from Miami or Houston International Airports, landing in Lima, Peru. After 2 nights in Lima, I flew to Cusco, at 11,150 ft, for 1 night. I took the train to the river valley, 1000 ft below Machu Pichu, for a 2 night stay. Reverse the process to return.
Most postcard pictures of Machu Picchu show Huayna Picchu in the background. I hiked to the top of that, with my two tourist friends.
