Inca Trail: Day 2

Pancakes with dulce de leche for breakfast

Today we hiked the toughest part of the Inca Trail, known as Dead Woman´s Pass. It was difficult from the start since we had to hike uphill for roughly four hours. Most of the time, it was quite steep.

Eventually, we reached the campsite that was the “easiest” part of the hike. There everyone took a long break, drinking loads of water and eating up some energy.

The hike to the top of Dead Woman’s Pass was considered free time. People were allowed to take their time. The group was supposed to then meet up at the top. Once we got to the top, everyone agreed that the view made all the struggle worth it.

We were probably almost two hours at the top, before going back down and make our way to camp. It took a while for the whole group to make their down. Although some hadn’t arrived yet, a lot of us were so hungry that we started lunch without them. Which was at roughly 3.30 PM.

After that, everything was relatively boring. Relaxing after such a difficult hike before enjoying some hot tea and freshly popped popcorn at 5.30 PM. Then an hour later, we had a delicious dinner.
