Beyond the amazing food, incredible views and the constant feeling of accomplishment I encountered a problem.
Most likely from brushing my teeth with tap water, I got a bad stomach. Although the guides could not offer me any medicine they kept an eye on me and made sure I was doing okay. They offered me food separate from the groups and tea to help me feel better. The guides really care about the trekkers in their groups and go above and beyond to make sure they are getting the most out of their Salkantay experience.
Feeling safe and taken care of by the guides is a part of my Salkantay adventure that I am thankful for and won't forget!!!
