When we went years ago you did not have to do the full 5 (or was it 7 ?) days trek. We did last 3 days which allowed us to get to Macchu Pichu early in the morning and we had the place to ourselves. It does get steep and the altitude makes it harder. I rember playing footie with some kids outside our hotel in Cusco and it nearly killed me!

Very near Cusco is Saqsaywaman, not to be missed. The Egyptians  and Romans could build but the Incas are well up there as well.

I'm doing a four day trek and I'm hoping we'll get to Machu Pichu nice and early so we miss the day trippers. 

Saqsaywaman looks incredible, will definitely see if I can give it a visit while I'm there.

As previous stated altitude can catch you out.  Good boots, pack light and be aware of dehydration.  Are you solo or booked through a company as a group?

I'm booked through a company that does these treks so I should at least have a guide so I don't get lost! Need to get my vaccinations in order before I go.

Off to Bali for a couple of weeks... took 30+ mins to find the car park we pre-booked. Eventually we made our way to the bag drop and apparently we can no longer stay at the hotel we originally booked during our layover in China. Got through security and found the nearest pub, only to knock my pint over before taking a sip. 
Not a good start so far 🙈

Have fun. I love Bali. Loved Nusa Lembongan. If you go to Ubud try the Sweet Orange Warung cafe. Lovely walk out to it.

Did you make it to the game? If so, can you come every week?
