Muito bom!!!

Fazer a trilha Salkantay foi simplesmente sensacional. Conhecer pessoas de outros países, dividir os desafios da trilha, compartilhar as dificuldades foi muito gratificante.
A trilha é para todas as pessoas mas preparo físico é importante. O sorocho realmente vêm no segundo e terceiro dia por isso preparo físico e dois dias para aclimatar faz a viagem mais fácil. ... Continue Reading

Awesome Trek!

We had a great experience overall with Romiero and Inca Trail Reservations. Day one included a hike to a beautiful lake. The altitude was challenging for some people in our group, but it was not too difficult. Day two was beautiful! We started with a nice and challenging climb up to Mt. Salkantay. Everyone in our group was so fun ... Continue Reading

The Great Hike

On the first day we hiked up to the Glacier lake. It was stunning! So worth the difficult hike. On the second day we awoke quite early with tea and hot water sitting at the door of our tents. We had a nice breakfast and then started the hike. It was very exhausting, but well worth it once we reached ... Continue Reading

Raul is the man

This is my first time hiking around Cusco as well as my first time in Peru and I loved the entire experience. My guide, Raul, calmed every apprehension I had for my trek.
The number of different ecosystems we saw in just the five day hike was incredible. Equally incredible was Raul's ability to give interesting and informative ... Continue Reading

Trekking with Raul

My girlfriend and I did the Salkantay trek as we weren't organised enough to book ourselves on the Inca Trail. We were initially concerns that we might miss out, but our fears were completely unfounded.
From day 1 the scenery was incredible. We were very lucky to be trekking with a great group of people and hit the jackpot ... Continue Reading

Stinky Mountain Feet

Wildflowers, blue lagoons, Mountain Peaks speckled with dazzling snow. Horseman, fellow travelers and the Inka spirits also fill the air.
The Salkantay Trail was a wonderful experience, a once in a lifetime opportunity! Raul, our more than jolly guide, was amazing. The man is a hidden little gem of the Ande mountains with a boyish grin and a sense ... Continue Reading
