Some shitty prose for you
There is a rawness to South America's landscape that surprises North Americans like myself who are accustomed to rolling hills and grassy prairies .
In comparison, South America feels otherworldly, and Machu Picchu is perhaps the most extreme case. It is as if it is impossible to completely tame these mountains; but in return you experience something harder to ... Continue Reading

Amazing Inca Trail
The toughest but most rewarding four days of my life. The views are breathtaking, the challenge is huge but the overall reward is immeasurable, reaching the Sun Gate on the morning of the fourth day to catch a first glimpse of Machu Picchu was one of my proudest moments. You are warned that the second day is the hardest and ... Continue Reading

The landscapes are breath taking from snow capped mountains to luscious rain forests, the experience is one in a life time . Our guide, Jorge, was very knowledgable and did an ... Continue Reading

Just made it
Had a great trip on the Salkantay trek. It was very challenging from the beginning with the altitude but once my body got used to the height it was great.
It's a good fitness test and a great way to see Peru. The highlight for me was the gradual change in landscape from rolling hills, to snowy ... Continue Reading
3 bad hikers vs Salkantay
All in all it was an amazing experience to do the Salkantay trek. As 3 Brits, unexperienced at hiking we went into the trek not knowing really what lay ahead but were continuously surprised by the diversity of the landscape that we passed on our trek.
Day one the best thing we did was a trek up to ... Continue Reading

Taking the private 4 day trek to MP was a great decision. Our guide Miguel was very informative, easy going, and adapted to our needs including us in planning the days itineraries.
Highlights for us (3 British guys approx 27) were Umantay Lake near the end of our first day (recommend taking a walk over the ridge!); the ... Continue Reading

Machu Picchu was amazing. Unfortunately missed the Inca Trail due to a combination of my girlfriends weak immune system and Peruvian cheese, was delighted though when we caught up with the rest of the group at the sun gate.
Will attempt Inca Trail again in the future as everyone else loved it.Lizandro was knowledgable and lovely. The panoramic ... Continue Reading
The view of Machu Picchu !!!
After falling ill the night before the trek, I was devastated to miss out. However, I did manage to meet up with the group at the Sun Gate on the final day, thanks to Inca Trail Reservations helping with alternate arrangements.
The walk down from there was fantastic, the view of Machu Picchu in the distance was worth ... Continue Reading
