IMG guide Peter Anderson called in yesterday morning at 7am from the summit of Huayna Picchu peak at Machu Picchu. Huayna Picchu is a steep trail climb to a lofty perch above Machu Picchu, a great eagle eye of the area.
The group planned to do a full tour Machu Picchu afterwards, then celebrate the end of the trip that evening in the town of Aguas Calientes. Today the team is flying back to Lima (or spending an extra night in Cusco) and the trip formally ends tomorrow with arrival back in the U.S.
Peter Anderson is staying on to lead the regular Inca Trail trek starting July 27, he’ll meet the next trip upon their arrival in Cusco.
