    I'am not perfect, but I'm always myself!!!
    Wow, and I thought 10.400km on Iron Curtain Trail is a lot :D
    But are you sure it's 30k kms (and not 3000km)? That's almost the equator...

    I would love to (be able to) do that, or part of it. The Inca trail doesn't appeal to me - too intense - but those wide open spaces in the photos are different.

    I'd love to be able to do that too, but are there showers at the overnight stops? :rolleyes:

    Hmmm....I was thinking that, being in the tropics that may not be too, too much of a problem, but then I remembered the altitude! Still, for that scenery, as long as there was water available, one could manage. :)

    I did a small portion in 2013. The landscape is breath-taking and the ruins along the trail are impressive. I would like to do it again.
