Chino was so amazing. By the end of the trek we felt that we had made a great friend, he was so kind, intelligent, and polite and was just great with our teenage children. We went 9km and told Chino we wanted to go really fast to challenge ourselves. We made the trek in about 3 hours instead of 5. We were very happy. The difficult initial ascent from km104 was a very vigorous trek which we loved. The ruins of Winay Wayna were magical and the amazing flowers, ferns, moss, and vines were the best. I loved it all except the scary bus ride down from Machu Picchu to the train station. Next time I will trek down.
