Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu October 17, 2011

The Salkantay trip with Salkantay.Org was outstanding and we would definitely recommend this trip to anybody truly wanting to explore Peru, and who is at least moderately active. In fact, we will probably do this trip again in the future. We visited several small villages exuding the Peruvian mountain-lifestyle, which is fascinating in itself. Food and gear was outfitted through this company, so we had plenty of time to take in the experience. Also, our guide Joel was outstanding- informative, accommodating, and pleasant. He made the trip very special to everyone in our group.

The last day was spent in Machu Picchu, and the brief tour of the historical site was much appreciated. We learned much of the Quechua way of life (language, symbolism, religious practices) along the trek, which all came together in the tour of Machu Picchu. The remaining portion of our day at Machu Picchu we spent time exploring the sites on our own time. We spent most of this time at Haynapicchu, which is a must. It is necessary to book this portion of the trip ahead of time with Salkantay.Org . Overall, this trip was life-changing and we are sad it's over.

Thank you Joel and Salkantay.Org !
