Stupendous Salkantay

I very much enjoyed the trek with the company of our very knowledgeable guides Marco and Paul. Day one was amazing with a trip to a isolated glacial lake, although I did make the mistake of trying to race Paul down from the summit and I obviously lost and also knackered my legs for much of the trek. Day two saw us arrive onto the Salkantay pass with an excellent view of the second glacier and then by the afternoon we had reached the cloud forest which was at least 10 degrees warmer.

I would recommend this trek to see the extreme variation in climates, in the space of just one day, you go from ice cold glaciers to lush green cloud forest. The food was also excellent and I would recommend a good bit of Holy water from Paul if you get a chance on the Salkantay mountain. The only other thing I would say is it can be strenuous at times so prepare your legs for some downhill strain, especially on the second day. Muchas gracias.
