When planning your Machu Picchu walking tour, remember that it’s best to enjoy the experience rather than focus on the number of steps taken. Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your journey:
- Pace yourself — don’t rush through the ruins, or you’ll miss key details. Allow plenty of time for photo ops and detours along the way.
- Take breaks — whether it’s for a quick rest at the top of a steep hill or in front of one of Machu Picchu’s many magnificent temples, taking a break will help you stay energized and maximize your visit.
- Bring snacks and drinks — especially if you plan on spending more than an hour or two in any one spot!
Finally, savor your experience by sharing photos and stories with friends back home—Machu Picchu truly is an unforgettable destination.
