Inca Trail Day 2 – The Hardest Climb and The Highest Point

[nggallery id=110 template=”caption”]

Since this is the hardest day on my monthly and it is also the hardest part of Inca trek, the guide tried to convince me to hire a porter instead.  I told him that I would rather go on my own pace and stay behind than hiring a porter, so that’s what we did.  Instead of taking 5 hours to get to the highest point of the trail, I took 7 hours – that was straight and steep uphill and it was probably one of the hardest hike I have done so far.  I was getting so tired from the altitude that I had to take break in between every 5-10 steps – but getting to the top was definitely the most rewarding time I have ever felt.

Since I was behind, we met one of the porter coming from the group ahead of us – apparently they have already pitched our tents.  He brought us food and helped me to carry my luggage for the rest of the way that afternoon.   After he took my baggage, I felt so light that I bounced the rest of my way to the camp.  By then I doubted my if I could walk with my backpack again.
