Wtf

By far, this was one of the most incredible adventures I have experienced. I wasn't sure what to expect as I embarked upon this journey, but what I did find was a positive yet exhausting experience. I mean, the views were spectacular, but my preparation for this experience was lacking.

Thank you king of the mountain and Jorge

I hiked the Salkantay trek with Carlos and Jorge at the end of March. I had a wonderful time, and though the trek is challenging at times I am very happy to have made the choice of joining the tour. The Salkantay route offers stunning and surprisingly varied views and is a very good alternative to the Inca Trail.
