Salkantay Trek August 2014

If you're looking for an adventure and to sharpen your buns into steel, this is the trip to take. This trip is not for the fainthearted or in mere physical shape. Anyone considering the Salkantay trek should be healthy, in decent shape and can tolerate days without bathing/showering.

Some lessons learned: pack light and exchange money prior to going on the hike as the locals do not accept American dollars. I made this trip end of August with my best friend; we did the 4N/5D trek to Machu Picchu.

Some highlights: we were blessed with good weather and we only had 1 night with heavy rain, we did not use our poncho for the day hikes. Our meals were surprisingly good and there was a variety for dinner. Would I do the trip again? Absolutely!
