2 day Inca Trek and a fear of exposure/heights

Jump to last reply

I hope someone can give me some peace of mind. I am booked on the two day inca trek. I had done lots of research, watched videos, read blogs, etc before booking and no where did I see anything that would have led me to believe there are some serious exposed drop offs, until I just saw a video on youtube that had not come up before in previous searches. How wide is this trail and how bad are the angles of the drop off? Sheer down? nearly sheer down?
I can do ok with heights when I am enclosed (looking out an airplane window, London Eye, Eiffel Tower, Palm Springs Aerial Tram) all no problem. I have gone up some Mayan temples in Belize, and hiked to Los Torres and Lago del los Tres in Chile and Argentina again with no problems.
Please someone let me know if this will be nothing but pure torture for me.
