Salkantay trek – pushing yourself to your limits

The Salkantay trek was my first major hike. It was exhausting and difficult, but an amazing experience with awesome people. On my first day, I suffered from altitude sickness. My sincere thanks to John and Phil who made me feel better by providing me with warm clothing and medication.

Our cooks and horsemen were great, and so were our guides Juan Carlos and Pepe. They were friendly throughout and gave good service. The only area of improvement I'd suggest was more through planning for safety, such as having walkie talkies around.

My only regret of this trip was not being in better physical shape, and as such had to complete part of the trek on the second day on horse. Will definitely aim to complete a full one in the future!
