Caballero-almost King of the Mountain

This was a gift from my girlfriend. For several months I have been apprehensive about the altitude and distances we would need to cover. She is in better shape than I am. I tried to do some training, but probably did not do enough. The first hike to the lagoon let me know that going over the Salkantay pass might be a problem. I was out of breath and walking slowly. Carlos, my guide, made me feel confident that taking a horse up would be OK. So I did and everything went very well from there on. I so enjoyed the scenery.

The food and accommodations were very good. They set up tents and took them down for us and transported our extra gear so we did not have to carry everything each day. Our guide, the King of the Mountain (Carlos) was very good with people and spoke excellent English.

Glad we made the trek and would use this company again if I ever have the opportunity.
