We took the Salkantay trek. This trek is the trek to take if you want the combination of a challenging hike and amazing scenery. The scenery changes from baron mountains, to glaciers, to snow capped peaks, to jungles with rives and waterfalls.

Each day you wake early to a coca tea delivered right to the door of your tent at maybe 5:00 am. Then you pack, have breakfast and be on the trail by 6:30 am. The days are long, with some walks going until 5:00 pm but you're surrounded by such amazing scenery, you won't even notice.

The staff are fantastic. Our guide Carlos as he prefers to be called, "King of the Mountain", was knowledgeable and very supportive of any ideas we had. The cooks and horseman were also great. Never have I seen a tent set up with such urgency, seriously, they run everywhere.

Anyways, was a great trek and would have no hesitation recommending Inca Trail Reservations -
