We just got done with our 5 day Salkantay hiking adventure and it's been an amazing trip! We were a group of 6 ladies and our tour guide Henrry was the absolute best tour guide!!.
He always made sure we were doing well during our hike up to Salkantay and he was very patient. When we reached the summit of the mountain it was AMAZING!!! Breath taking views and definitely worth the long hike! This was day 2 of the hike and it was the toughest day.
Getting acclimated to the altitude and listening to your body is important. Some of the girls took some aqua de Florida and that helped them with the altitude sickness.
Also, the hot springs are a must! We really enjoyed our time there after such a long hike !!.
