El segundo día fue bastante duro con respecto a la caminata con mucha subida , fue muy cansador. El tercer día conocí varias ruinas, me explicaron sobre los solsticios y el culto ... Continue Reading

Always last!

For me, this trek was a big endurance test but I am very happy to have achieved it.
Edwin and Marco were excellent guides and gave me, as a 60 year old, great support especially as my husband got sick just before the trek started and had to miss the trek. The scenery was magnificent, the food ... Continue Reading

0-0, 4-2 on penalties

First of all, Edwin and Marco were fantastic guides and looked after everybody, especially my sextagenarian mum.
They were always good-humoured and fun, also extremely patient. The views were always breathtaking and although that second day was about as tough as it gets. 1200 metres is a very, very high altitude to climb.
Luckily, both Edwin and ... Continue Reading

Whoa!

This hike was amazing! Our guide, Raul Coronel, was fantastic and fully informed us of each day's agenda so we were prepared for the day.
The food along the way was fantastic and the accommodations improved with each day. I was not expecting things to be as nice as they were! Flushing toilets, solid tents, and good sleeping bags. ... Continue Reading

Raul talked to us about the history of the Peruvian people and the landscape. Everyday we knew the plan and had a lot of fun! Each night we stayed at cute and cozy camp sites. The sleeping bags kept us warm ... Continue Reading

Sore Calves But Happy Camper

A friend of mine recommended this trip after she did it a couple years ago. I did the Salkantay Trail trek with a torn ACL about a month before surgery.
I was really worried about whether or not my knee could handle 4 days of mountains, but my guide was sensitive and offered alternatives that allowed me to experience ... Continue Reading

What a hike!

The Salkantay trail through INCA TRAIL RESERVATIONS with Raul Coronel was more than what I could have imagined it would be. I am not a skilled hiker by any means but I am a fit adventurist.
This hike was challenging and left me with soar calves but the best sights I've ever seen! The Andes mountains are indescribable and ... Continue Reading

Raul coronel was an awesome tour guide and compromised to our needs totally recommend to take this trip only if you're ready physically. It's hard but super fun and you get to meet lots of new people. Do it and don't forget to look around and smell the roses, ... Continue Reading

Pichu Pichu

One of the best things I've done to date, very challenging but at the same time very rewarding.
As a group of eight we did the five day trail and at times I wasn't sure I could finish it...the guide was very encouraging and pushed us forward, with plenty of rest stops if need be. Also another thing I ... Continue Reading

The spirit nurse

I really enjoy the trek, the view was absolutely amazing! It was my first experience like that and I will do it again for sure!.

Salkantay for the win

This was truly a once in a lifetime experience. I fell apart throughout it but Victor kept me going!.
He was the best tour guide I could have ever asked for. The food was great - side note: I chose vegetarian option because I was scared we would get crazy meats, but the food wasn't crazy at all, just ... Continue Reading

Sweaty nuts and freezing butts

So different, exhausting and rewarding all at the same time. The trek starts with two very testing days, but the views of glacier lakes, mountain sunsets and other challenged Trekkers keep you moving.
After numbing temperatures in the first two days, the pace slows and the temperature increases. The food, prepared by a wonderful Chef Beltran with very limited ... Continue Reading
