I met my sister in Peru and we came on the Salkantay trek - the first time I'd seen her in 2 years! This trek has the most beautiful scenery - it changed from hour to hour as we climbed up mountains, stumbled back down again, crossed waterfalls, meandered through jungles full of orchids, hummingbirds, and maracuya.
All the while led by Carlos, King of the Mountains, who looked after us and was so patient. And Beltran and Jose Luis who cooked amazing food, set up our tents and did all the hard work! I can't decide whether the hot springs, the zip line, seeing a condor in the wild, or the view of Umantay lake was my favorite part!
