Machu Picchu mission

Oh my gosh this trek was one of the most amazing decisions I have made! The views are spectacular and make every uphill effort worth it. The food far surpassed all of my expectations. Personally, I don't eat dairy and every meal (and there were courses) had something scrumptious I could eat!
One of my favorite parts was ... Continue Reading

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

When I arrived, Carlos and Martin made sure to keep ... Continue Reading
