#PeCasAdventures 71: Machu Picchu & the Rainbow Mountains

We make it to Cusco - starting point to some of South Americas finest sights. We have all seen pictures about Machu Picchu but the real thing is absolutely breathtaking - literally. We decide to climb the Machu Picchu Mountain and arrive exhausted but happy to the top. The same can be said a few days later at the rainbow mountains, a stunning landscape in over 5000m. Breathing problems are normal here. But Cusco has more to offer: Inca ruins, lagoons, salt flats - impossible to not be happy!

Wir fahren nach Cusco - Ausgangspunkt zu einigen der schönsten Ecken Südamerikas. Machu Picchu kennen wir alle von Fotos, aber vor Ort zu stehen ist trotzdem umwerfend. Zudem klettern wir auf den Machu Picchu Berg und schaffen es mühsam aber glücklich an die Spitze. Das Gleiche behaupten wir auch ein paar Tage später auf den Rainbow Mountains in 5000m Höhe. Atmungsprobleme sind hier die Norm. Aber Cusco bietet mehr: Inca Ruinen, Lagunen, Salzseen - Für jeden ist was dabei!
