Get Your Steps in at Machu Picchu
Cusco has one of the largest Incan civilizations. The streets are filled with so many archaeological sites that you can stumble upon. There is a sense of spiritual energy no matter what part of the country you are in. Depending on what time of year you go, the weather can vary quite often so have a rain jacket on deck. Given that my sister is playing competitive lacrosse at Duke (impressive, I know), we are not able to complete the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu given the D1 rules. I have friends who complete it and say it's a must-do activity. We took the early bus so we could beat the crowds while walking around Machu Picchu. It was the right call; I recommend going early in the morning when it's less crowded. And by doing so, you may even get to watch the fog rise over this glorious mountain ridge. Be prepared for wildlife and the llamas everywhere on the site. Machu Picchu is so pretty in real life and it's crazy to picture the Incan people living out in the middle of nowhere.
Even though this trip seems a while ago, I will never forget our Sacred Valley excursion. I do not recommend doing this activity if you are afraid of heights because you have to climb all the way up (thank god you are clipped in) by crossing rope, steps, and rock climbing. The best part is you get to zipline all the way down through the sacred valley which is some of the prettiest views. I have been ziplining many times before but nothing beats this experience.
I almost forgot - there is an interesting tour of Lake Titicaca via boat. It's so cool to see these people living on water without electricity and hay in this floating village. Kinda changes your perspective on what matters in life and how these people live with nothing but are so happy. Overall, the trip to Peru is incredible and I cannot wait for the next time we come back!
