Salkantay 5d4n

The Salkantay experience was a very positive one. The hiking was tough, walking almost 50 - 60 km over four days. But it would have been tougher if we had to carry our tents as well as cooking supplies. All these were carried by horses and all we had to carry were our personal items. The food was great! We ...

Every meal up in the mountains were simply amazing, came in three courses and different ... Continue Reading

My mom and my sister were fine, but I suffered a little altitude sickness because unlike my mother ... Continue Reading

I highly recommend it

This trek was truly an amazing experience! It was a great opportunity to really experience the majesty of the Andes mountains. I traveled to Peru alone, however from the time of booking, the folks at Salkantay.org were always helpful and communicative, even though I was in the states.
When I arrived, Carlos and Martin made sure to keep ... Continue Reading

Der Weg ist das Ziel

Am Anfang unseres Abenteuers waren wir wohl alle ein wenig naiv, nichtsahnend was uns wirklich erwarten würde... der erste Tag ging dann erst mal gut los. Nach einem nicht all zu anstrengendem Tag hatte ich schon richtig Lust auf die Herausforderung der nächsten Tage. ganz einfach war es dann aber doch nicht. 1000m Aufstieg bis zum Pass der Toten Frau ...

We did it !!

Although I've been excited for this trek for a long time, I was very scared! Gerson and William helped us to stay motivated and know that we could do it! The hike was very hard, but rewarding.
