Salkantay trek

Bellissima avventura in mezzo alla natura incontaminata! Molto dura, in particolar modo il secondo giorno, il che però rende il tutto molto più gratificante. I panorami sono davvero mozzafiato e lasciano senza parole.
La partr che ho preferito è senza alcun dubbio quella del secondo giorno dove abbiamo scalato il monte Salkantay, arrivando ad un'altitudine di addirittura 4650 metri. ... Continue Reading

Salkantay 4 days / 3 nights

I enjoyed seeing: the glacier, the condors, and the Inca monuments. Quite seriously, those are easily the best part of the trip.
The hikes are difficult on your knees, and be careful to apply lots of sunscreen and mosquito spray. You will definitely need it in the humid jungle environment.
I had a good experience with both my ... Continue Reading

Salkantay Trek 4d3n

My adventure on the Salkantay trail was one rife with excitement. Our journey began as all great ones do, in the back of a van at the wee hours of the morning. As dawn spread her rosy fingers across the land, we met our guides and fellow travelers. A beautiful friendship was born. I could not have asked for a ... Continue Reading

Salkantay Trail 4d/3n

Note: Alternate titles include "The Raultimate Adventure" and "No, I seriously want more Lomo Saltado"
In seriousness, the trip was well managed and expertly led by Raul Coronel. Like Odysseus, we were far from home when we embarked on the quest. We also had very little Wi-Fi, so Homer would have had a field day with this voyage.

A tough and very rewarding hike for the over 50 set. The second day is touted in advance as very difficult, and though that's somewhat true, it is certainly well worth the effort.
The glacier is gorgeous and you get beautiful views of it all morning. The hike to the lagoon on the first day is a great warm-up ... Continue Reading

I love hiking the mountain. It is uphill - I keep fast walking. It was good view of the mountains such as Llactapata, Phuyupatamarka, etc.
Juan was brilliant because he was explaining us ( 6 people ) about places we visit, history and learn a bit BSL ( British Sign Language ). Also, he has good gesture for deaf ... Continue Reading

I'm with my deaf friends, we were concern about communicating with Juan, but he did an excellent job to communicate with us by write down on paper also speak slow for us, he made sure we understand everything about Machu Picchu.
