Today, Machu Picchu trekkers made it to the Sun Gate at sunrise and into the lost city of Machu Picchu. Trekkers awoke early to wait at the park gate to be allowed in first. This early start allowed for the team to reach the Sun Gate as the sun hits Machu Picchu for the first time in the morning.
After touring the city, the team took the shuttle back to Aguas Calientes where they will enjoy a nice dinner and a good night’s sleep at their hotel! Tomorrow the team will return to the city for another tour and to climb the iconic Wayna Picchu before returning to Cusco via the scenic train.
