This trek was one of the most challenging experiences of my life, both physically and mentally. It was also one of the most rewarding and amazing. This was a trip of a lifetime and something I will remember for years and years to come.
The views while on the trek were spectacular and often surreal. We saw snow peaked mountains and jungles in the clouds. Reaching these sites was made more amazing by the struggles we conquered to get there. I cannot recommend enough that more people take the Salkantay trail.
In addition to the trek itself, the food was delicious and the people amazing. Our guides were kind and funny and were both patient and considerate. We absolutely made lifelong memories and lifelong friends.
