So we’re off the train and this marks the start of the Inca Trail.
So I guess we should explain that we aren’t doing the traditional Inca trail. Normally
you can do a four day walk or a 10 day walk. We’re actually only doing a two day walk.
我们不懒 它有点像就是这样 跟上我们 可能可能
We’re not really lazy it is just kind of how it happened. Come on we are. Maybe, maybe
只是一点 希望能舒服 所以基本上我们要
just a little bit. We crave our comfort. So basically we’re going to be hiking for a full
徒步旅行一天 然后我们要去得到我们的Aguas Calientes 然后住宾馆
day and then we’re going to get to our Aguas Calientes and stay in a hotel. We’re not staying
in tents. And then the following day we’ll be touring Machu Picchu with a guide and like
learning the history of the place. So I guess really it is only one day walking the Inca
Trail but we’re going to say two to feel a little better about ourselves.
所以5分钟路程后 我们到了我们的第一个印加点 这真奇妙
So within five minutes of walking we’ve already reached our first Inca site. This is amazing.
More than five hundred years ago there were so many people hiking on the Inca Trails to
get to Machu Picchu. This is because Machu Picchu was a holy city for them.
Pachacuti is the famous person here. We consider to him as Alexander the Great of the Andes.
So I think at this point we’ve probably been hiking for an hour and a half or two. How
你感觉怎么样 我有点热 我在出汗而且我们几乎全程都在走上坡路
are you feeling? I’m hot, I’m sweaty and we’ve been going uphill almost the entire way. So
I’m looking forward to hitting the lunch point and then going downhill all the way to Machu
Picchu. Same here!
Sam is really getting into his photography over there. Coming? How is the walk? I’m still
我还是累 还是累 还是在出汗 哦是的 但我们还在走 还在这上面走
tired. Still tired? Still sweaty? Oh, yeah. But we’re still walking. Still going at it.
还在走 迫切希望在尽头能淋浴 和大概冰淇淋
Still walking in desperate need of a shower at the end of this. And maybe ice cream? Maybe
ice cream. More like a hot springs.
So we are half way done the hike. What is something that has really surprised you so
far? I guess maybe how the vegetation keeps changing. Like when we first started out the
是绿色的 当然 但像现在 我们深入山里
trek it was green. Sure. But like now as we’re getting deeper into the mountains and like
像更接近瀑布和河流 植物真的很繁茂 有很多苔藓 而温度
closer to waterfalls and rivers it is really lush and there is lots of moss. And the temperatures
实际上有一点儿变凉 就像之前我在出汗 真的很潮湿 但现在
is actually a bit cooler. Like before I was sweating and it was really humid but now the
temperature is starting to drop which is really really nice.
We’ve almost made it to the archaeological site that we can see off in the distance.
Wiñay Wayna. Straight ahead!
这个地方被分为3个部分 好 所以它和马丘比丘很像
This place is divided into three parts. Okay. So it is similar to Machu Picchu. The only
difference is that Machu Picchu is much much bigger than this.
In this area where the terraces are those people find the remains of the coca plants.
You know coca was one important plant for the Quechua for the Inca people. Oh yeah.
They used coca as the currency. They used coca for medicine purposes. They used coca
for religious purposes.
It looks like beans to me. But it is llama poop.
So what we’ve encountered the monkey steps. I think this is going to require climbing
on all fours. Let’s go.
像猴子一样 像猴子一样 那不怎么像猴子 好吧 不怎么像猴子
Do the monkey. Do the monkey. That’s not very monkey like. Well, it is not very monkey like.
So we’ve reached Intipunku and this is where we’re going to get our first view of Machu
考虑到我们走了多长 我觉得我们是值得的Intipunku 这边走
Picchu. And considering how long we’ve walked I think we’ve earned it. Intipunku. This way.
胜利 我们要去哪里 我们要去太阳路 仅仅
Triumphant! Where did we make it to? We made it to the Sun Gate. Barely. Barely.
马丘比丘！马丘比丘！我们到了 你觉得怎么样 我知道 在长时间徒步之后
Machu Picchu! Machu Picchu! We made it. How are you feeling? I know. After that long hike.
很奇妙 我们如此幸运看到这样的风景 因为显然
It is amazing. And we’re so lucky to have views like this because apparently it was
raining for three days before we did this hike. I know. And we have sunshine and blue
和蓝天 失落之城在等着我们 就在那里
skies and the lost city is waiting for us. Just over there.
Going for the Llama selfie. Going for the llama selfie. Hi llama. Hi llama. Let’s be
friends. Or ignore me.
这是马丘比丘的外围 我们结束了步行 而其实明天我们要回来
So that is a wrap from Machu Picchu. We finished the hike and tomorrow we’ll be back to actually
探索失落之城 是的我们有两天在那里所以那很棒 我们等不及了
explore the lost city. Yeah, we have two days to do that so that is awesome. We can’t wait.
