With Autumn coming up, it’s about time I began getting in shape and learning about the art of thru-hiking. To date, my modest experience of hiking comes in the form of the Salkantay Trek in Peru, so it’s safe to say I have a lot to learn!
The trail ended at the base of Machu Picchu, with a view to climbing it the following day.
Whilst the trail’s obviously a hefty physical exertion, research from 90% of my sources from “The University of Google.com” express that the trail’s more about the mental day-to-day grind of thru-hiking. It’s estimated that approximately 50-60% of aspiring thru-hikers fail to complete it, so I’m going to use that as a motivation to be one of the other 40-50% who do.
