I would do it again just for the food

On day one, I learned that my American definition of flat and the Incan definition of flat were two very different things. After trekking for several hours, our group made it up to the first camp site where we were served the best meal I had ever had until that point in Peru. Seriously.
Day two brought the infamous ... Continue Reading

I had an unforgettable time during my trip on the Inca Trail. Booking the trip was incredibly simple. Inca Trail Reservations (specifically Mabel) took care of all of our transportation to and from all locations and answered all of our questions along the way.
Day 1 of the hike was exciting. It was challenging in certain parts, but the ... Continue Reading

Fantastic time

As soon as I was collected from the hotel I was greeted with happy faces and felt welcome with my new Inca family ! Our tour guide 'King of the Mountain' was fantastic and very knowledgeable when it came to any questions. The porters are lovely people who struggle throughout the day with all of the gear but still make ... Continue Reading

Best staff

Having had the opportunity to trek several times around the world I can honestly say that the staff on the Salkantay trek was the best I've had so far. Everybody involved made sure we were as comfortable as possible !
The food is by far the tastiest I've ever had on a trek, unlike other companies where everything tastes ... Continue Reading

Yummy food at 4200m elevation

I hiked the Inca trail at the beginning of November and it has been a great experience. The trek itself is easy-medium difficulty, lots of steps up and down on the second and third day but it is all worth it. It is great to see the ruins and to listen the history from the guide.
Above all the ... Continue Reading

Meeting lord Apu on the Salkantay trek

I signed up for an adventure and I got it ! I had become bored and complacent with my cushy life in LA. I had writer's block and I knew the only way to cure it, was to get off my lazy butt and do something awe inspiring. And, although I had my trepidations, (I almost ended canceling the trip) ...

Loco Salkantay

It was a great trek with awesome and diverse landscapes. Our guide Carlos is crazy but in a positive way. He made it a nice five days and so did the cook and the mule driver. We were very lucky with the weather, although of course it has been very cold the first two days. Harto frio en la noche ... Continue Reading

Oh la la

My trek of the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu was memorable to say the least. Our group had a fantastic guide, Carlos, who was there to help us through all of the ups and the downs (literally and figuratively). He was extremely knowledgeable and helped the group learn all about the significance of the places we visited. This knowledge helped ... Continue Reading
