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

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

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

Clueless in Peru

Peru has been one of my top bucket list items to visit. While this was one of the most beautiful I've seen and maybe the most beautiful mountains, my downfall was that I was ill prepared. I feel this is for a well seasoned mountain hiker and preparation is critical to have a full experience you seek.
