The first day is the most challenging, with four hours of uphill, and an hour of downhill. The lunch and dinner were very hearty and tasty. The night was very cold and maybe another blanket would have helped.
The second day was challenging ... Continue Reading

Holy Altitude Batman

I was unfortunate enough to get a sever case of altitude sickness in Cusco so I unfortunately had to miss most of the hike.
The company was great at working with me to help me find other options, but naturally lost my money. They allowed me to add on another tour but it did cost extra. The day ... Continue Reading
