The 5 day and 4 night Salkantay hike up to Machu Picchu was one of the most awesome things I have done.
When booking the trek I knew it would be a challenge but really wanted to do it. As much as it was grueling and trying, it was a lot easier as I thought it would be. I also thought that I would get altitude sickness, whether it was the coca leaves I chewed or time spent in Cusco before, I didn't land up getting sick.. Thank goodness!
The crew cooking for us were beyond friendly and professional. The food was so delicious. Our guides, Paul and Marco were extremely friendly and helpful. The knowledge that they both shared with us along our trip was outstanding. I would highly recommend this to all my friends and family.
