Ups and downs

If you have ever read about the Inca's and not been here you have only half the awe inspiring story. Once you add the Inca trail to Machu Picchu the pictures come alive. Never will you see the pictures or read the stories the same again without imaging yourself in them.
The hard uphill sections give you ... Continue Reading

Machu Macho Man

Definitely the most challenging, but also most rewarding thing I have ever done. Manny was an excellent guide, and he kept a great pace for our entire group.
Unbelievable pictures from the 4 day hike!! I would highly recommend doing this hike (if physically able) instead of only taking the train to see Machu Picchu because you gain such ... Continue Reading

With the encouragement of my tour guide and the top notch work of the porters, I was able to stay motivated through the physically challenging hike! The people in our group ended up being far more than just a group, we formed a ... Continue Reading

Recompensador

Sem duvidas, a trilha inca é uma experiencia unica. É cansativa, exige muito do corpo para superar horas de caminhada, muitas subidas e degraus, e muito da mente para manter o bom humor e focar no objetivo principal, que é aproveitar o passeio.
A pesar das dificuldades, a recompensa é imensa. Paisagens que a vista não consegue ... Continue Reading

Unforgettable experience

The 4-day trekking with Inca Trail Reservations was won-der-ful!. The Chaskis (heroes!) and our two guides Manuel and Bernardo helped us discover the true beauty of the Peruvian Andes and the mysterious history of the Incan empire.
The mountains and misty landscapes are marvelous. For four days you are completely disconnected to the exterior world and that felt like ... Continue Reading

Conquering the mountain

This truly was an amazing trip! The second day seemed to last forever and at times I thought.
I would never make it to the top, but with the help of the guides I managed to conquer the mountains. Every single meal was just exquisite and they even took the time to prepare some delicious vegetarian food for me. ... Continue Reading

Andes to Amazon

These guys put a great trip together. The Salkantay trek isn't easy, but our guide and his crew knew how to get us up and over the pass.
By the end of the first day, Ronnie (our guide) had figured out the relative strengths/weaknesses in the tour group and kept us marching at a good pace that didn't wreck ... Continue Reading

Como se alpaca?

Salkantay is amazing Because You see so many different environments. At first you climb paramount Andes mountains. The next day you emerge in warm Amazon rainforest. It is all topped off by visiting the greatest ruins in the world. It's ultimately a highlight reel of the greatest things Peru has to offer. Also food is amazing. Ronny and Raul are ...

Ronnie is a champion

My expectations were greatly exceeded. Everything from the the hike, to the food, to our excellent guide was really amazing.
I'll admit that it was seriously demanding but it was equally rewarding. The hot springs and zip line were extra bonuses that top the trip off well. Really glad we went with salkantay over the inca trail as it ... Continue Reading
