Okay, this is officially the oldest trip report ever, but I thought some people might be interested in this ~ Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and 8 day backpack trip in the Cordillera Blanca. We spent 3 weeks in Peru back in October of 2007 and enjoyed every minute of it! The people are super friendly, especially up in the mountains, and there are just so many things to see and do. It was really hard to decide to what do! In the end we picked 3 different regions - Inca Trail, Amazon River/Rainforest, and the Andes, and it was a good variety between hiking and being tourists.
