Beautiful trek walking through different climates
Jul 2019
I put myself to the challenge and joined the Salkantay Trek with Incas Destination. I didn't have a lot of experience hiking but I manage to complete the trek succesfully.
It's a beautiful trail which leads you through different climates. On the first day you visit the Humantay Lake located on high altitude, a beautiful lake with an icy wall on the background. The second day is the most challenging, in the morning we were walking up to the Salkantay pass in the snow, in the afternoon we walked down all the way to the high jungle. Very interesting to see the vegetation slowly change, from snow to a green forrest environment.
After the 2nd day the trek gets a bit easier. On the 4th day you will visit Machu Picchu, which is simply amazing.
The guides are able to explain all the stories well in English and they create a nice atmosphere amongst the participants. I joined solo but I met many people on the way. You will wake up early everyday, but trust me you will fall asleep early as well after being outdoor all day. The food is great!
I was able to take so many great pictures of the beautiful landscapes, so if you're hesitating to bring a camera definitely do it. Besides, you are able to put 10 kilos of your stuff on a horse while you're walking.
Ps. I didn't use any walking sticks, it's definitely possible. Only my knees hurt a bit after walking down a lot, I think using sticks could have prevented it.
