A travel with my daughter into the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

02 October 2014

Into these words, Jesse M. Harris related us the great experience with his daughter through one of most touristic trails more biggest in the world "Inca Trail" that we conduce to Machu Picchu, one of the new world wonders. During seven days across the inca empire, Jesse and his daughter crossed many places in Cusco, Sacred Valley, etc.

And here is the little experience:  

You know you’ve done something right as a parent when one of your children asks you to take a trip with her. Even better? When the trip is her treat.

This was the case with my adventurer daughter, Chaya, who asked me to join her for a hike on Peru’s 27-mile, high-altitude Inca Trail, with the end prize of coming face to face with the lost city of Machu Picchu, considered one of the new seven wonders of the world.


The Inca Trail itself is one of nearly 25,000 miles of paths that connected the civilization’s vast empire, roughly from Ecuador’s Quito down to Santiago in Chile and east into Argentina. Cusco was at the heart of this great empire. Many experts believe the Incas forged the trail as a holy pilgrimage that prepared visitors to enter the mysterious Machu Picchu.


My daughter has been on a couple of group travel trips to South America and Central America, so she was used to all this. Me? I’m a fiftysomething comfortable at sea level with a cup of iced tea on the back porch and a walk around the park. So I wasn’t entirely sure whether this was something she really wanted to do with me or if it was payback for something. But a chance to spend that kind of time with one of my children couldn’t be passed up.


So after she booked the trip through Toronto-based G Adventures, one of several global travel companies authorized to lead guided trips on the trail, we were off in early July.
