The Salkantay Trek was a great way to experience not only Machu Picchu, but to also see all the different landscapes and climates Peru has to offer. On our five day, four night trek we traveled through glaciers, rolling plains, and rainforests in just a short time. Our guide, Ernie, did an excellent job of pointing out important features along the trek, but was also a great guy to be around each night.

One of my biggest worries going in was the food; but our cook had an amazing meal prepared for us each day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It also gave us a real idea of the local foods and preparations used by the Peruvian people. If you decide to chose Salkantay.Org as your trek to Machu Picchu, remember to bring clothing for all weather as the evenings get quite chilly but the lower elevations is quite warmer with sunshine.

There are horses that carry a portion of your belongings from camp site to camp site, so you won´t have to worry about carrying all your things through the mountains.

All in all, the Salkantay Trek more than surpassed my expectations for a 5 day hike up to Machu Picchu and I would recommend this company to anyone looking for an unforgettable experience.
