Encontrando Pachamama

Devo dizer que achei que seria facil fazer uma trilha de 4 dias até Machu Picchu, talvez porque estivesse acostumado com trilhas brasileiras onde a maior parte do tempo estamos andando no plano ou em morros muito baixos comparado aos Andes, a verdade e que a Trilha se mostrou muito desafiadora e gracas ao excelente tratamento dos guias, a disposicao ...

Journey to Machu Picchu

I want to start by saying thanks to everyone that took part on organizing this amazing trip for our group. Juan Carlos is a really good tour guide.

This was my first time traveling on my own so I was a bit nervous about what kinds of ... Continue Reading

Better than I expected

Before signing up for this hike I had very little experience with hiking, so I was a bit nervous. I arrived to Cusco a few days early so that I could get used to the elevation, and got to explore around the city. Not only were the people friendly and welcoming, but the atmosphere and night life were amazing as ... Continue Reading

The porter team was fantastic. We had the strongest "pumas" to carry the tents, tables, chairs, etc. so helpful and efficient, always polite. I've got huge respect for them. ... Continue Reading

The second ... Continue Reading
