This was the most spectacular adventure of my life. From the moment we left Cusco I knew I was in for quite a ride. With the help of my fantastic friend Americo, who also happened to be my guide, I was brought to the most beautiful parts of the world.
The trip to Soraypampa was a great way to ... Continue Reading
Auf den Spuren der Inkas
Der Gedanke einmal den Machu Picchu zu sehen, hat mich schon lange verfolgt. Als die Idee reifte den Inka Trail zu laufen, haben mich alle fuer verrueckt erklaert. Ich selbst war mir nicht ganz sicher ob ich das schaffe. Jetzt bin ich zurueck und bin maechtig Stolz auf mich!
Der erste Tag war perfekt um warm zu werden. Am ... Continue Reading
The Inka Trail trek was one of my Peru highlights! The first day was kind of training day, very calm and not hard, the family got to know each other, it was a good team. The guides were very friendly and had eyes and ears for all our questions. The first camp was nice, too! Thanks to the excellent sleeping ... Continue Reading
Inka Trail 4 day / 3 night
Overall, this was a fantastic experience!! While there were definite challenges, especially at Dead Woman's Pass, this excursion was extremely rewarding! Juan Carlos and Cesar were amazing guides who were very helpful and informative about the historical sites we visited along the trail.
The porters are also worth mentioning, specifically since they inspired a family-vibe with all their hard ... Continue Reading

The Salkantay trek has been an experience I will never forget. This was my first real hiking / camping experience. I had read many blogs, but still had no idea what to expect when we were picked up early in Cusco.
Our first day was filled with amazing views of the Humantay Glacier, as well as an amazing visit ... Continue Reading
Ich wusste ja gar nicht, wieviel ich an einem Tag wandern kann. Jetzt weiß ich es! Nach einem Aufwärmtag mit einer eiskalten Nacht zwischen Gipfeln, Pferden und anderen Wanderern, hoch auf 4630 Meter hochgewandert zum Fuß des Salkankay: Eine unbeschreibliche Erfahrung! Völlig fertig aber glücklich, außer Atem und erschöpft steht man vor diesem riesigen Berg und ist einfach nur glücklich!

Ohne einen Vergleich zu haben, kann ich den Salkantay Trek sehr empfehlen. Wir haben die 5-Tage/4-Naechte-Variante gewaehlt. Der erste Tag, die Wanderung nach Soraypampa, war sehr entspannt und belohnte uns mit toller Aussicht und einem rau-unwirklichen Campingplatz.
Am zweiten Tag stand schon der mit Abstand ansrengendste Aufstieg an: die Ueberquerung des Salkantay Passes. Wir stiegen 700 Meter auf - ... Continue Reading
Salkantay war wahnsinn
Der Salkantay Trek war unglaublich. Ich kann ihn jedem empfehlen. Um mit unserem Guide zu beginnen, wir verbrachten 5 Tage mit Carlos, er war grossartig. Abgesehen von seiner guten Laune und Energie konnte er uns wirklich viel ueber die Landschaft, Natur, Pflanzen und seine Inkavorfahren berichten. Niemals fuehlte man sich gestresst von ihm um weiter zu gehen, wenn unsere Gruppe ... Continue Reading

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.
