Just wondering whether anyone has been to Macchu Picchu and surrounding areas?
I’m going on a school trip in 8 weeks time- we’ll be there for 3 weeks, staying in Cusco for several days, doing the Salkantay Trail to Macchu Picchu (the alternative to the inca trail- it takes 4 days and looks awesome) and then will be helping out at a Sacred Valley community project for 5 days before going into the desert to chill out and do some sand boarding and dune buggying. So it does look fantastic!
I’ve never been before- and just wondering if anyone has and if you’ve been to the areas where we’re going- particularly Cusco- if you have any recommendations of places we should visit? Or just any general advice for the areas we’re going.
There’s myself, another teacher, a guide provided through a proper expedition company and 14 students- youngest is 16, oldest is 18.
We do have an itinerary- as you can see from what I wrote before- but while we’re in places like Cusco we can do what we want. So any recommendations will be appreciated!
