Salkantay for the win

This was truly a once in a lifetime experience. I fell apart throughout it but Victor kept me going!.
He was the best tour guide I could have ever asked for. The food was great - side note: I chose vegetarian option because I was scared we would get crazy meats, but the food wasn't crazy at all, just ... Continue Reading

Sweaty nuts and freezing butts

So different, exhausting and rewarding all at the same time. The trek starts with two very testing days, but the views of glacier lakes, mountain sunsets and other challenged Trekkers keep you moving.
After numbing temperatures in the first two days, the pace slows and the temperature increases. The food, prepared by a wonderful Chef Beltran with very limited ... Continue Reading

Clueless in Peru

Peru has been one of my top bucket list items to visit. While this was one of the most beautiful I've seen and maybe the most beautiful mountains, my downfall was that I was ill prepared. I feel this is for a well seasoned mountain hiker and preparation is critical to have a full experience you seek.

No Pain No Gain

This trip will be one I remember forever. It was very demanding and rewarding. Best views I have ever seen. The guide Raul was very upbeat and accommodating. Fun guy to hike with. Gave out extra blankets and pillows when asked. Going from the high altitude mountains to the jungle was pretty cool. Also did zip lining for the first ... Continue Reading

This company plans all aspects of the hike and goes out of its way to ensure the trip is fun. All the food was surprisingly delicious and was ... Continue Reading

Salkantay Soirees

Make no mistake; the Salkantay Trek is a grand adventure. Bring someone you love (since you'll be in close quarters for five days!) and prepare yourselves for views not to be missed.
At 15,000 feet, the Salkantay Pass is not to be taken lightly (or without real trekking gear), but the adventures are well worth it. After the alpine ... Continue Reading

Mexican in Peru!

This trip has been in my bucket list for a few years now, and all I can say is that this has been the most adventurous trip I've been into.
The views while tracking were amazing and out of this world, I literally thought I was in Iceland when we were hiking to Salkantay. Absolutely loved ... Continue Reading

Mountains to valleys and back

I can't speak to Machu Picchu yet as that is tomorrow but the Salkantay trek to Aguas Calientes was varied and covered a beautiful landscape.
The two first days were the most difficult because they were at high elevation but also wonderful mountain scenery. We hiked to a blue-green lagoon on the first day. Then we crossed ... Continue Reading
