We made it!!

A really tough but very rewarding trek. Everything about the adventure was surprising even though I had heard so much about it.
The guide, Ronnie, spoke great English and explained all about the Inca history as well as local traditions. The porters and chef also did an amazing job and the trip could not have been possible without ... Continue Reading

I survived

I have to say that this was a very nice trip. A lot of beautiful scenery on the way while hiking.
Tour Guide was very friendly and knowlegable. He shared the information with us very clearly. One star less for the food that was very poor for breakfast and with no options for people with special food requirements. ... Continue Reading

The doc

Over all I enjoyed the trip. It was tougher at parts than I expected but there was often alternatives offered. The alternatives however were not up to the standard I expected however. These were along public dirt roads and not trail as advertised. I found our guide very good for the most part but I found that he pushed his ... Continue Reading

So the Salkantay Trek was awesome! I had a blast with my group and enjoyed exploring the wilderness of the Peruvian Andes! This trek should only be taken by an experienced hikers.

I would recommend the Salkantay Trek after the experience I had. It was fairly organized, however it was not noted in the emails all of the trek supplies we needed.
The food was decent for camping, however I would suggest there is more drinking water supplied for this trek. At times there was some disorganization because everyone worked at ... Continue Reading

The camp sites were very nice and it was nice being able to camp among the other groups. We were definitely fed well although we thought the meals didn't have enough fruit or ... Continue Reading
