Whoops! You didn't book the Inca Trail. Here's how to still trek your way to Machu Picchu!
Machu Picchu is alright, but Peru has much more to offer than this over-crowded tourist attraction.
Don't make the same mistakes as us - we made way too many.
You guys can do this one for sure (especially with horses)!
The hike to Laguna 69 can be a bit challenging, particularly if you're not accustomed to the altitude, but it was also undoubtedly the most beautiful hike we've done so far.
If you're looking for a relatively easy hike to acclimatize to the elevation, Wilcacocha Lake is a good day trip to start exploring the area around Huaraz.
