High and hungry!

Such a great time! Met some awesome people and felt well taken care of throughout the trek. The food was amazing, the hikes were challenging, and the guide/cooks/horseman were incredibly helpful.
I would recommend this trek to anyone looking for a rewarding and more isolated alternative to the classic inca trail. I won't forget this experience, and got ... Continue Reading

Stinky feet

We decided to do the city tour first which I highly recommend. Downtown Lima's historic district is a must see. Miraflores also has an awesome cat park for all the cat lovers. Bring treats.
Before the trek I suggest some hiking experience. High altitude sickness really hit me. I do not recommend this trek for first time hikers. ... Continue Reading

Long Legged Slow Man

Salkantay Trek was absolutely amazing. The day hiking over the pass was incredible and exceeded my expectations. It was very difficult but as long as I walked slowly I didn't get so winded and it was much easier than I thought it was going to be.
It was a delight to walk through so many ecological zones in one ... Continue Reading

The Condor

The whole expedition was great but I will try and give suggestions.
Before I left I would have liked to been given a summary of what I could have expected to see. For example the flora/fauna.
Since we spend a lot of time on the trail, it would be more interesting to spot plants or animals that ... Continue Reading
