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.

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

The Fellowship of Machu Picchu
Absolutely amazing. Our tour guide and porters were beyond incredible and I would definitely recommend this hike to anyone and certainly do it again.
Even though the hike was difficult and physically and mentally demanding, no one was impatient with me. Instead we encouraged each other to keep doing better. I'll also never forget how hard our porters ... Continue Reading
