Mountain Bikes And The Sacred Valley
Going to Peru may seem like enough of a challenge for some, but it’s actually not. Visiting Cusco and visiting Machu Picchu should be the gateway to Peru, and they don’t do it nearly enough. Centuries of culture and spirituality have been preserved and they don’t tourist-ily dump it. Both of these sites are sacred to their hosts. To visit Cusco, you must first be prepared to face the Th skepticism Of the Incas, Of course this was much easier than it used to be.  สล๊อตเว็บตรงแตกง่าย  Mountain Bikes

I had the privilege of visiting Cusco a couple of years ago when on a mission trip with 15 other people. It was my first time in the high falls and I was overwhelmed by the reverence and respect the people had for this place. We happened to be in the area visiting the high falls around sunset. The path to the top is graced by a succession of beautiful falls. In this case we were around 3 or 4 km from the top at the Tambopata falls. I was trying to figure out how this falls would be more impressive than the usual falls that the guides had shown us, when this massive wall of water on the other side of the falls, splashed on to the path and continued to roll and quietened us. It was breathtaking!  Mountain Bikes

I got a personalized tour of the top of the falls, which included a personal waterfall experience with the guide. Also included was a 20-minute boat ride to the base of the falls. Both the falls and the boat ride were impressive. To top it all off, our guide left us in beautiful solitude to enjoy our time alone on the island. Later in the evening, we returned to the cabin for our next approach to Machu Picchu.

Many people’s first encounter with Machu Picchu was as breathtaking as my first.

This may seem like a no-brainer, but it’s not.  Mountain Bikes

The Incas and Machu Picchu were both conquered by the Spaniards and remained under their control through most of the 1700s. Only after the Spaniards abandoned the region for the New World, did the two entities become independent. Today, Peru is closer to the Equator than it is to the North Pole, so the climate is much drier than it would have been a couple of centuries ago.  Mountain Bikes

This blurring of the boundaries between this Cotahuasi village and the surrounding highlands is due to the lluvian end of the Penon River. When the Spaniards left, Penonanyon was where they chose to build the city of Machu Picchu. Without this river, Penon will dry up and Cusco will be flooded in the summer.

If you leave at the right time of year, you can also hike up to Machu Picchu in the Sacred Valley. You will find many different tours offered from several different companies and there are many tours you can take. Make sure you do your research before you leave and know which tours you want. Mountain Bikes

Most people will want to climb the ruins at the very last minute. If this is possible, you will have to book your visit to Machu Picchu way in advance of your visit. This will save you money and time. Booking a tour a few months in advance will also ensure you get a spot at the Inca site. The ruins are in an area where many trekkers and park visitors flock to. There is a hire shop and a restaurant at the site.

Many people think the best way to visit Machu Picchu is from the south. However, the hillside location makes this climb challenging in some parts. In fact, you will find many people enjoying the trek to Machu Picchu and then plateauing at the top as well. This is a good way to spend your time if you aren’t looking fo r the thrill of adventure. You are guaranteed the view and the climb is minimal.  Mountain Bikes

The way to Machu Picchu is always a maze of paths an d challenging enough to require the use of human energy to climb to the top. The search for the ultimate Machu Picchu trek is everyone’s quest. It’s just a matter of how many will make the climb.

Most people will attempt to climb the mountain without use of oxygen. This is risky and should only be attempted by those who know what they are doing and have the knowledge and the physical condition to attempt it. Some people laugh at suggestions of trying to get to the top using only makeshift and homemade techniques. What you must do is find a reputable tour operator. What he or she will do is call for hikers who will attempt the feat.  Mountain Bikes

Many’ll try to downclimb, which is only for those who are not fit and can handle the altitude.
