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
Onward and upward
I decided to hike the Inca Trail with a friend. Another friend recommended Inca Trail Reservations because she and her husband had a great experience. Inca Trail Reservations staff was professional and friendly at every point. Mariella was extremely helpful with making reservations.
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

I loved the Salkantay trek, it was a wonderful way to get to Machu Picchu. From the beauty of the mountains, to the knowledge of the ... Continue Reading
The Salkantay trek was the experience of a lifetime. The views were spectacular. Our party decided that around every corner was a new part of Peru to love. Our guide was also amazing. He led the tour with humor, knowledge and patience.
We laughed throughout the kilometers, learned great Incan history and were able to complete the trek at ... 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

Our coordinator, Fanny, was fantastic about keeping us informed of all of our options and required steps. As soon as we landed in Lima every step was thoughtfully taken ... Continue Reading
Fantastic Peru adventure
This was an amazing trip and I would recommend this exact trip to everyone I know. From the beginning, Salkantay.org has been in contact via email with all the important information we needed to prepare for our trip. When we arrived in Peru, we were met at the airport and taken directly to our hotel in Lima. The hotel was ... Continue Reading
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
