Machu Pisco 14

After not knowing at all what to expect about the Inca Trail or the company we booked with, I couldn't asked for anything more. Everything from our group size to the food we were given was perfect.
After three days of tough trekking, finally on day four the view was spectacular, and fairly emotional. All the exhaustion, early mornings ... Continue Reading

The staff at the office in Cusco was friendly and helpful; and our trail guide, Manny, ... Continue Reading

Adventure Machupichu style

First day was awesome! I felt strong, I felt unstoppable! But Pachamama had something to say about that... the second day I was humbled by altitude sickness. At the top of the pass, the highest point of the trail, I began to feel nauseated and definitely no longer strong or unstoppable.
Somehow, with the support and encouragement of my ... Continue Reading

Machu Picchu Peru 2014

Inca Trail Reservations did a great job preparing us for this trip. Their packing list was very accurate considering the variable weather conditions and it would allow for light enough packing to trek with your own bag. However, as Inca Trail would recommend, it makes the trip way more enjoyable if you hire a porter to carry your gear for ... Continue Reading

Fue duro pero valio la pena

Si no estás en forma, Salkantay te hará sufrir. El segundo y el cuarto día son los más duros, más de 20 km de subidas y bajadas por terrenos escarpados. Al final del trek tendrás ampollas en los pies, picaduras en varias partes de tu cuerpo y descubrirás músculos que no tenías y que ahora te duelen.
Valió la ... Continue Reading

Salkantay trekking

Day 1: After a bus ride we started to walk until our first campsites. There we had lunch, before we walked to a very nice lagoon with a wonderful view. The trail was very steep but it was worth it. After some explanations from Carlos, an offering made with stones and a "family-picture" we walked back to the campsite, where ... Continue Reading

Salkantay trek

Salkantay trek was awesome. I almost died a few times because it was so bloody cold and I had never experienced such altitude. Day one we went a drive for a couple of hours before starting the trek, we reached our campsite after a few hours and then after a short break hiked for an hour up to an awesome ... Continue Reading
