One of the best experiences of my life, set out with my girlfriend on the 5 day trek with Salkantay and our guide Leo Rodriguez. Every day we would have ”storytime” with Leo when he would tell us about ancient Peruvian culture, the local agriculture, local myths and much more. We highly appreciated this as we felt closer to nature and the experience as a whole.
The food was excellent, the huts were comfortable and the attitude and guidance by our guide Leo was on point!
I highly recommend Salkantay and our guide Leo if you want to come even closer to nature and know more about Peruvian culture and history.

This trek was simply breathtaking. Everything about it was incredible. The accommodation locations were great, the food was amazing and more than anything, our guide Wilson Pinedo was incredible. He went above and beyond and made the trek even more enjoyable with his rich historic knowledge, humour, patience and kindness. Experience of a lifetime!

Hello,

Just finished a 5 day salkantay trek with Salkantay Trekking. Only suggestions I had was to inform them that this was more than an average trek in difficulty and to make the hot springs part of the trek with the cost and not optional as everyone does it!

The trek was absolutely outstanding and in large part made better by our incredible guide Wilson Pineda. He was knowledgeable, funny, caring and extremely encouraging....his passion for the Inca people and this beautiful land shone through throughout the trek. The food was top shelf and plentiful throughout.

An outstanding trek overall. Wilson is worthy of an award IMO.

It's always really exciting to hear when our trekkers have had an unforgettable experience in the Andes! It's such an honor to be a part of that! I'll commend Wilson for a job very well done. Hope to see you next time for another adventure!

Wow, what can I say. It was an amazing 4 day experience.

First of all, our guide Andre was incredible. He was intense, but made the trek memorable and meaningful. You can tell he cares deeply about his job, and sharing Inca spiritual beliefs and practices. "Vamos muchachos!"

The food was absolutely beyond our expectations! The best food we ate on our trip. The chef and sous-chef, wow, I don't know how they do it but they managed to beat us to camp, and crank out the most delicious multi-course meals all day.

The camps were super comfortable with thick firm foam mattresses and warm sleeping bags. The wake-up call with tea was bonus for sure.

Truthfully, when reflecting at the end, the cost is INCREDIBLY affordable for what you get. We could never have paid for a hotel for multiple nights, plus 3 meals of amazing food each day, plus the entrance fee to Macchu Picchu AND the train and bus ride back to Cusco for the price we paid for the Salkantay Trek.

I will say, we "trained" for this (by that I mean we hiked with moderately heavy backpacks) each weekend for about 6 weeks leading up to the trek and we were glad we did! We did the 4 day ("short") trek and you definitely need to be ready, both in terms of cardio and leg strength, as they are long days. No need to be hard-core athlete, but this is no stroll along a path. There are some steep inclines and the altitude is an added challenge. I'd recommend doing some hiking, squats, etc. leading up to your trek.

Thanks Salkantay! We wanted a challenge and we got it! But we also got great amenities, food, and a fantastic guide! Our group will remain friends!

PS April was a great time to go in terms of the weather we got! A little rainy for only an hour or so one day, but otherwise very pleasant weather!
