■ PERU, PISAC: Whilst no mountain filled with historical ruins I’ve ever encountered could rival the sheer aesthetic beauty of Machu Picchu, said site does come with two major drawbacks:
1. There will be thousands of other people there during YOUR visit which somewhat puts a dampener on your ability to enjoy the site
2. Huge parts of it are off bounds to tourists which puts a mega dampener on your ability to enjoy the Inca ruins.
At the Inca ruins of Pisac, which for the record encompasses a site which is 4 times larger than Macchu Picchu, you will not encounter any of these issues. I was the only one there for the first 2 hours of my hike.
But the main advantage of Pisac’s Inca Ruins is that the hike itself is more scenic and interesting that any hike you can do on your day visit to Macchu Picchu.
Don’t believe me? Well, let me hear what you think after having seen the superb hiking trails I traversed up this morning starting at 05:55 AM at Pisac central market.
