Well, where do I start? I'm traveling the world for 14 months and my last stop in South America was Machu Picchu. My Machu Picchu experience was nothing short of amazing - something I will always remember, especially getting the chance to do it with my Paps. From trekking around 75 km, to climbing mountains reaching an altitude of 4650 m and inclines of at least 50 degrees, to camping in tents for three nights + 1 night in Aguas Calientes, to surprisingly eating some great food, to meeting some great people and finally seeing Machu Picchu itself and then pushing ourselves more and climbing Huaynapicchu, the Salkantay trek was majestic and memorable.

The change in weather conditions was crazy to experience especially at higher altitudes - within 1 hour, I saw sun, rain, hail, extreme winds and snow. Other than a protest in Santa Teresa where we had to be extremely careful due to violent activity, we had a blast although going through the protest was an adrenaline rush I always crave. No words can describe the views, landscapes, and the trekking itself, but the whole trip felt liberating, free, challenging, inspirational and motivating. I really enjoyed myself and all the staff from the guides, to the cooks to the horsemen were fantastic and helpful. Great experience, great time. Thanks for everything !
