Salkantay 4 days / 3 nights

I enjoyed seeing: the glacier, the condors, and the Inca monuments. Quite seriously, those are easily the best part of the trip.
The hikes are difficult on your knees, and be careful to apply lots of sunscreen and mosquito spray. You will definitely need it in the humid jungle environment.
I had a good experience with both my ... Continue Reading

Salkantay Trail 4d/3n

Note: Alternate titles include "The Raultimate Adventure" and "No, I seriously want more Lomo Saltado"
In seriousness, the trip was well managed and expertly led by Raul Coronel. Like Odysseus, we were far from home when we embarked on the quest. We also had very little Wi-Fi, so Homer would have had a field day with this voyage.

The glacier is gorgeous and you get beautiful views of it all morning. The hike to the lagoon on the first day is a great warm-up ... Continue Reading
