"In the Land of the Incas" Tumi1213's photos around Machu Picchu, Peru [00:57]
A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Machu Picchu, Peru by TravelPod blogger Tumi1213 titled "In the Land of the Incas" Tumi1213's travel blog entry: "We rounded the high stone wall and gasped as the vista opened out before us. Machu Picchu. Lost City of the Incas. The city the Spanish never found. Our gaze swept across the sheltered mountain glen. Wisps of fog rose through the surrounding green-clad mountains, adding an ethereal quality to the already fairy tale setting. Rediscovered by Hiram Bingham in 1911 while leading a Yale expedition seeking the last city stronghold of the Incas, Villacamba...but I'm getting ahead of myself... We landed in the capital of Peru, Lima, and weren't out of the airport before our first surprise - we needed some ready cash in the local currency but the ATM popped out US dollars. It turns out that that's the common used currency here. The next surprise came as we stepped outside the airport. We were awash in balmy ocean breezes - Lima, on the Pacific Ocean, feels just like southern California with its sunny and dry atmosphere, palm trees waving everywhere. We had an afternoon to stroll along the beach before turning in early for a 4 am pickup the next morning. Flights to Cusco (the jumping off city for Machu Picchu trips) are early to ensure good weather as you fly over the Andes. (Luckily Peru is the same time zone as New York, so the jet lag isn't bad.) Second in height only to the Himalayas, the Andes boast several peaks ...

"Horse-trekking in the Andes" Markandluke's photos around Vilcambamba, Ecuador [01:10]
A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Vilcambamba, Ecuador by TravelPod blogger Markandluke titled "Horse-trekking in the Andes" Markandluke's travel blog entry: "After flying down from Quito in order to excape the road-blocks, we continued travelling for 2 hours to a small village called Vilcambamba, and then down a dirt track to some cabañas (bungalows) on a river, surrounded by huge mountains and valleys. The hostel was owned by an American guy with a very twicked head, who`s sentences seemed to contain the longest pauses ever. Sometimes he would just tail-off and forget what he was saying, other times he would talk for half an hour about Pine forests. Really funny though, and we knew we would enjoy our stay there. The hostel (4 bugalows) had a sauna right next to an icey mountain stream, so we thought it would be rude not to partake in a spot of relaxation at least twice. The4 home cooked food (English wife) was great, and we did a 2 day horse-trek, which took us into the cloud forest. The day trek to get to the refuge (where we would spend the night) was pretty scary in places, as the rain had made the paths into quagmires, and at points there were drops that must have been 200m on both sides. When the horses started to slip and drop to their knees, that was when the heart skipped a few beats! We made it safely up though, and had spectacular views from the refuge - in the middle of nowhere, just us two and the guide surrounded by forest and mountains ...
