Surprising but….

I feel honored to get the opportunity to see this beautiful country through the Peruvian point of view and experience a challenging, but fulfilling, adventure.
I loved learning about the history of the Salkantay trail, the Incan people and their history and living and being within the beautiful Pachamama for 4-5 days. At the same time, meeting people from ... Continue Reading

Struggle bus

I started the tour pumped for what is to come, but definitely not prepared for the intensity of the hikes.
The first two days were challenging yet every scenery was rewarding. Unfortunately, I became sick with stomach upset after dinner on the second night, and so could not enjoy the remainder of the trek as much as I ... Continue Reading

Lazy Legs

The journey started with a mad rush back to Cusco to get to the rescheduled "before meeting" which we missed.
Needless to say, I had no idea what we were in for while waiting outside of our Cusco hostel at 5:30am for our bus to start the salkantay trek. Each day I was truly impressed with the beauty of ... Continue Reading

Miracle on Ice

This was truly an adventure of a lifetime. I did this trip with a couple of my close friends and it was a great experience.
The trek was a great way to bond with my close friends and be able to meet new people as well. For myself, it was the first time reconnecting with my college roommates since ... Continue Reading

Knees a breakin, heart’s a taken

Had an amazing adventure on the Salkantay trail. The whole adventure was fabulous. You tour through some of the most beautiful scenery that you will ever see.
I was blown away by the crazy views of the glaciers on the first and second day. This crew works their butts off to support you. On the fourth ... Continue Reading

Chi chis

This was certainly quite the adventure. I had previously suffered from altitude sickness in the US, at lower heights than we reached on this trek.
That had me nervous going in, but the crew leaders were very well equipped and advising on how to head off symptoms. I did not have much more than a headache the ... Continue Reading

Brits adventure!

This was on the bucket list! Lesley and I have wanted to do this since our 40th birthday, eleven years later here we are!. From landing in Lima we haven't stopped. At the briefing before we arrived to find a lot of very young people, this was intimidating, we got up very early the next day and set off, nervous ... Continue Reading

Brits abroad

When we went to the team brief it all sounded amazing but I was a little concerned that I was 30 years older than most of the group.
That aside once we set off the next morning it was an amazing adventure , at times I wanted to throw down my walking poles and cry but due to Marcos ... Continue Reading

Barely survived!!

What a beautiful country! The glaciers are by far the shining point on this trek, completely worth the extreme hiking. I did get sick (elevation? I took the medicine) midway through the hike which dampened things a bit. However, for my first trip out of the United States I still think this was a good choice. The Hiking is a ...

Wir starteten am Tag darauf ziemlich früh mit dem Bus Richtung Mollepata, wo wir noch ein Frühstück bekamen. Dann gings los, hinein in eine wundervolle Landschaft. Die Tagesetappen Sind schon recht anspruchsvoll, das sollte man ... Continue Reading

Inka-pacitated!

Having never experienced a trek of this length / duration, I wasn't quite sure what to expect, especially in a drastically new location than ones I had visited before.
This will be a difficult trip to forget. The insane change in scenery and environment from the beginning to the end of the trek was just one ... Continue Reading
