I didn't know what to expect on the way up to the lake, but the beautiful turquoise water was ... Continue Reading

Inca Trail's "Salkantay trek" allowed me and 8 ... Continue Reading

Day 3 Is easier though, plus we ... Continue Reading

A memorable adventure

Our guides from INCA TRAIL RESERVATIONS were friendly and knowledgeable about the trek, natural sites and Inca ruins that we passed along the way.
