What an incredible adventure ! The entire trip (Salkantay 4 day trek) was a whirlwind from start to finish. As I am not an avid hiker nor an athlete in any means, I was definitely scared for the trek but thank god I had Hilton, Juan Carlos, and Marcos as tour guides !
From the start they made sure that our group was a family and we really became one. The tour guides had everything ready for us from the beginning to end from history lessons, words of encouragement mid trip, and overall great friendly personalities.
The trek itself was full of jaw dropping views. From the first day at the base of Salkantay , to up at the glacier pass with a secret lake, and ending with a hike through the tropical forest and Machu Picchu.
I would highly recommend this trip to anyone looking for a true Peruvian experience without the fluff and frills of tourist traps. Absolutely an adventure I will remember for a lifetime !
