The four-days/three-nights Inca Trail-trek was amazing. Most of all, the incredible mountains, landscape and Inca sights make the trip definitly worth it.
While the cooks created every day really nice meals - and even three-course menus - on over 3,500 meters above sea level, the porters made also an really nice job. They carried over 25-kilo-bags and were ... Continue Reading

The Inca Trail is the most famous trek to get to Machu Picchu and now I know why. Four days of breathtaking views and even more breathtaking climbs! Do not be fooled - it is no walk in the park and a certain amount of basic condition is neccessary. But the feeling of accomplishment and the amazing surroundings make the ... Continue Reading
First day was quite tough due to altitude sickness. We had only just arrived in Peru from Argentina so was not used to the altitude. We had to stop every few minutes to catch our breathes which means we were quite slow compared to the majority of the group. We should have prepared a lot more or at least acclimatized ...

We hiked the Salkantay trail as alternative to the fully booked Classic Inka one. What a good choice! Sleep at 4200 mt., no other people around, with a breath taking night view of the Salkantay peak. Reaching 4630 mt. and descending into the jungle.
Hike to the Lachtapata ruins and have a first glimpse of Machu ... Continue Reading

Everything I had imagined about the Salkantay Trek and Machu Picchu came to life the second we started hiking.
The elevation on the first two days made the hiking more difficult but walking slower gave me the opportunity to take in and enjoy the indescribably beautiful view. The sense of accomplishment when we reached the highest ... Continue Reading

Very accommodating to my allergies and I had lots to eat. It was very tiring but the group waited up for each other to catch up.
The people along the way were friendly, as well as a very friendly cat. The view was nice and the heights didn't scare me like I thought they would. I actually felt ... Continue Reading
