Crazy trek to Machu Picchu through Inca Trail

At first, I was hesitant to take this journey because I know that it was gonna be tough physical activity and I'm not fit to do a lot of trekking but I did it a try... Why not ? I love to challenge myself to a ... Continue Reading

Our two guides Paul and Marco have made an very good job and helped us over the ... Continue Reading

Difficult but good
We booked this trek and arrived in Cusco at noon the day before the hike so we didn't have much time to acclimate to the hike. We were also the least prepared of the group.
This was a difficult hike even by the veteran hiker's standards. But the guides were very supportive and accommodating so we were able to ... Continue Reading

The trip has been fantastic. The Salkantay trek is a much more challenging trek than I thought having climbed Kilimanjaro and the Atlas Mountains. I assumed that it would not be as hard and I wish I had trained more as the difference here is that you start the trek at a higher altitude than the others and so the ... Continue Reading
