This impressive trek passes under the magnificent Salkantay mountain (6.71 / 20569ft), one of the highest and most impressive of the Peruvian Andes. Its first two days will be dominated by the impressive "Apus" of Salkantay and Huamantay, while touring the high puna landscape. The third day will descend to the warm cloud forest, to reach Aguas Calientes on the fourth day. The impressive Inca sacred city of Machu Picchu is visited during the last day of the program. This tour is an interesting alternative for those who have not found space in the trek of the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. Trek Salkantay (or Trek Salcantay), was recently named among the best 25 treks in the world, by the National Geographic Adventure Travel magazine.
🎯NR3 from my hike and treks Top21 - Kilmanjaro! 🏔 The highest mountain in Africa, and one of the Seven Summits, is a dormant volcano that has three volcanic cones – Kibo, Shira and Mawenzi – the highest point being Uhuru Peak on Kibo’s crater rim at 5,895m. There are seven official ascent and descent routes on Kilimanjaro – Machame, Lemosho, Marangu, Mweka, Rongai, Shira, and Umbwe – and succes via any of these routes requires good fitness and an itinerary that allows enough days to acclimatise.

A cabin adventure is long overdue. Throwback to hazy skies and way too many mosquitoes.
