Salkantay adventure

The Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu was an experience I will never forget.
The struggle on the second day, only to be followed by the reward of seeing the mighty Salkantay glacier itself, could easily be a two day trek itself. The rest of the trip to Machu Picchu only proved that the Salkantay trek is the most ... Continue Reading
