Wayna Picchu - Need to be Buff?

OK - hard to describe yourself honestly.

I am not fit but active at a lower intensity level. What I lack in muscle and lung capacity, I usually have in tenacity. Very slow at the ruin sites, but get to where I'm going.

Questions:

. Is it the same path up and down? E.g. will people be coming down likely while I'm stilling climbing?

. Can WP be done slowly, or does the flow of traffic require that the group stick together.

Want to do this tomorrow (have a ticket) but don't want to be a hazard to others or myself.

Thoughts?

Thanks!

It's the same path up and down. If you're on the 10AM group then there will be people come down as you climb up.

You hike at your own pace.

It can a bit slippery when it rains.

You gain about 1000 feet in elevation for the hike. It takes about 2 hour round trip.

Go for it. If you can't make it to the top, you can always return.

OK - that's great. Knowing that I can go at my own pace without frustrating the socks off others is golden. Thanks both. Will be heading up at 10am tomorrow.

Cheers!
