5 day 4 night trek

The entire thing was wonderful. It was incredible to see everything and "earn" your way to Machu Picchu!.
The trek was physically very hard - even after acclimating the height difference on the trek was very taxing. The food was phenomenal - they took food restrictions seriously and everything was fresh and great. The trout was the best I've ... Continue Reading

Over 3000 Couches to Kitchens to the Summit

The five day, four night hike through the Andes to get up to Salcantay and eventually Machu Picchu was an amazing experience.
After the initial hike on day one you have the chance to take a dip in a glacial lake, which is a great shock to the system and to cool your muscles. They will tell you that ... Continue Reading

It was one of the most physically demanding things that I have ever done, but the beautiful landscape was my motivation to keep going as the sights seems to get more and more beautiful as each mile past.
It seemed like every sight was ... Continue Reading

YOLO (you only live once)

Truly a wonderful trip. I spent 2 days in Cusco, which. I would say is the absolute minimum amount of time you should spend to get acclimatize.
We had 2 guides with us who were really great. They made sure out group of 12 were all safe and happy. It is no small feat to organize 12 people on ... Continue Reading

Almost Dead Woman’s Trek

I came to this trek with some fear and trepidation, knowing it was going to be a very difficult challenge and knowing that I had not trained for it !!.
I knew too that there would be amazingly beautiful views along the way and lots of interesting information to gain about the country of Peru, the people and their ... Continue Reading

I climbed

Could not be done without guides and porters. Amazing adventure. Would have been easier 10 years ago but worth the pain :).
I climbed the stairway to heaven and found the god of the stairs. The scale of Machu Picchu is not possible realize in a photo. Three days of hiking including a peak of 14,000 feet seems silly ... Continue Reading

Amazing journey

The hike was amazing. There were so many awesome sights around every corner whether it was the mountains, valleys, ruins, or just the good company along the way.
The guides were entertaining, the cooking was restaurant quality, and the history was alive as we hiked down the trail. I felt like a fairly in shape 29 year old when ... Continue Reading

Killer Steps

The hike was much tougher than I expected, but well worth it! Be prepared for hard hiking (LOTS of steps) as well as beautiful views.
You'll feel very accomplished once you walk through the Sun Gate and see Machu Picchu for the first time! Day one is fairly easy hiking. Day two, the tables turn and the hiking gets ... Continue Reading
