Spectacular adventure

I loved the Salkantay trek. We arrived two days before we got on the trek and so we were a little scared about altitude sickness (we are from Holland and live below sea level) but were totally fine. Our guide was very good (good tips about culture, nature, etc.) and positive what made it fun and relatively easygoing.
Highlights ... Continue Reading

Second day, for me, was the best day. We climb up to have the greatest view on the Salkantay mountain... it was a heavy ... Continue Reading

40 minutes

Our guide Lito kept saying it would be forty minutes along a flat way. It really meant 2 hours on a horrible incline... Needless to say it was the punch line for the trip. A great time was had by everyone. The staff and agency were amazing and very attentive.
I enjoyed every day and it was so wonderful ... Continue Reading
