Trek highlights

We spent five days on the Salkantay tour. We started day one with flowers and greenery. After a short trek we reached base camp and had tents ready and a meal already prepared for us. We left our bags and trekked up a steep hill to find a stunning lake below a snowy mountain. This was possibly my favorite spot on the whole trip.

Day two was a long one - we trekked for over 10 hours, climbing to the highest altitude of the trek. We began the day in the mountains and finished the day in the jungle. It was awesome to see such a huge change in our surroundings in just one day of walking by foot. Other highlights included the outing to the hot springs and the delicious cake that the cooks made for my mom's birthday.

I would recommend this trek, just make sure you train some beforehand. My legs are quite sore but I'm happy !
