Highlights included a ... Continue Reading
My sister and I went on the four night, five day Salkantay trek. It was an unforgettable experience.

Besonderes fordernd war das Baden im kalten Bergsee mit Gletscher im Hintergrund. Angehnem war dafür das Entspannen in den heissen Quellen. Auch sehr interessant war der Austausch mit Leuten aus aller Welt. Auch die Guides, die Küchencrew und die Transportertruppe war sehr ... Continue Reading

The first night consisted of a fantastic meal made by the chefs, who travel where ... Continue Reading
Beyond the amazing food, incredible views and the constant feeling of accomplishment I encountered a problem.
