The Salkantay trip was absolutely wonderful. I prefer this trek to the Inca Trail because it was less crowded. It was great having space to walk by myself sometimes. I don't think I would have enjoyed walking with so many other people on the trail.
Raul, our guide was awesome. He was fun and relaxed, and was also very informative. Raul let us hike at our own pace. The amount of hiking seems intimidating. The second day was tough, but nothing unmanageable. It was very rewarding to finish the trek.
The food was also really good. I loved waking up to coca tea in the morning. The food was really healthy and rather simple, so no ones stomach was upset. Awesome ! Highly recommend.
