Queen of Salkantay

I really enjoyed the Salkantay trek! The first day was great due to the weather and the fact that we did not have to walk a lot.
The lake that we walked to in the afternoon was great, beautiful view and a good way to get used to the height. The second day was tough, but I enjoyed the ... Continue Reading

Forced to luck

You can not visit Peru without going to Machu Picchu. Or do you really want to tell your friends you didn't see the only place in South America they actually know? So you are kind of forced to go.
But sometimes, being forced to do something is not all that bad, and this is one of those occasions. Doing ... Continue Reading

Hungover Hiking

Absolutely incredible adventure; without question the greatest thing I've ever done. The scenery, the history, the people we've met. It's been overwhelming how beautiful the Peruvian Andes are, and we got to journey right through their heart. Passing crystal-clear blue lagoons, glacier-covered mountains, rocky river beds and mountain outcrops, down to lush jungle; this was all within 2 hours. ... Continue Reading
