The Salkantay Trek is one of the most enduring but rewarding trails available in Peru. It not only tested your physical but also your mental capabilities. I really urge folks who are contemplating this trip to go for the full 5 days experience.
The food was authentic, the guides were passionate about their work, and the people you end up meeting are amazing traveling companions. Hands down one of my favorite trips so far! Dinner on the last night is worth the trip. Always remember to have toilet paper handy.
It's suggested that you enter Cusco a couple of days in advance to get adjusted to the altitude. Team Zombie Lichens 4 eva!
