Early start today, and on the bus to Ollantaytambo, where we stopped for a very quick coffee before heading to the Inca Trail start line.

It was a deceptively easy start, followed by a sharp ascent and then a valley and another sharp ascent towards camp.

There are Inca ruins dotted all the way along the trek, and today we saw a couple of great examples. We also got a taste of just how dramatic the scenery was going to be for this trip. Mountains appearing, swathed in mist and then drenched in sunlight.

When we get to camp it gets dark remarkably quickly. It’s an early night for us all, as we’re still relatively floored by the altitude, never mind the weariness of having walked all day…
