The first night camping we were VERY cold! We camped at Soraypampa, and even with all my layers, hat, and gloves, I was shivering and barely slept. I wish I had brought a sleeping bag liner.
Once we got climbing the next day we all warmed up, and were rewarded at the top of the pass with hot tea, sandwiches, and stunning views!

While the highlight for me was the journey, once we got to Machu Picchu, I couldn't help but feel that I was in a magical place. We watched the sun rise as we stood quietly together. It was a moment I'll never forget.
