Fue duro pero valio la pena

Si no estás en forma, Salkantay te hará sufrir. El segundo y el cuarto día son los más duros, más de 20 km de subidas y bajadas por terrenos escarpados. Al final del trek tendrás ampollas en los pies, picaduras en varias partes de tu cuerpo y descubrirás músculos que no tenías y que ahora te duelen.
Valió la ... Continue Reading

Salkantay trek

Salkantay trek was awesome. I almost died a few times because it was so bloody cold and I had never experienced such altitude.

Challenging but rewarding

This is a trip I have wanted to go on for years and I am so glad that I waited because I got to share it with the woman I love. The Salkantay trek was extremely challenging, which made the rewards that much greater. We met some great people along the way and I wouldn't change a thing.
