Adventure and awe Challenge, contemplation Spiritual trek.
I highly recommend the Inca Trail company for the 5 day Salkantay trek. Paul was an amazing guide for an outstanding experience.
He shared a wealth of information and great humor, starting with a city tour that included a Cathedral and Saksaywaman, and a second day in the Sacred Valley with a number of other cultural stops
We then began the trek and spent the first night in Sorypampa where we caught our first glimpse of Salkantay, the Milky Way Galaxy, and the Southern Cross.
Of course, visiting Machu Picchu was life changing.
