As experienced hikers we approached the Salkantay Trail with much respect. After all, some are at 4600 vertical meters and spend the night in tents at 4000 meters. The respect was of course quite appropriate, especially since the air on the other side of the 3500 meters is getting thinner and thus force less and less. However, we were surprised with a service from the TreXeperience team that you can not expect the highest standards on such a hike. No matter where and at what altitude, morning, noon and evening, our own cooking team conjured up menus that we missed in restaurants before and after. The transport of our luggage was taken over by mules. Relief pure! Both Guides, Charlie and Hubert, proved to be highly professional, with excellent English, extremely helpful and accommodating, with a high level of expertise in cultural and historical issues. Hats off! In the end you can recommend the tour with TreXperience only warmest.
The trek itself was an incredible experience. Everything very well organized, food excellent, also for vegetarians. Raul, our guide, is a super personable person who was very concerned that we are all well. He accompanied us during the days and also provided very interesting information about the country and its people. The camps were more comfortable than I expected in advance. Unfortunately, the briefing did not work well in advance. The guide, who was supposed to give me the information about the trek on the spot, was 2 hours late and did not tell me anything that could not be read in the online description. Optionally you can visit hot springs and zip linen on the route, I did not have this information in advance. Furthermore, I was not given a bag / backpack for the second luggage.
A small group. Professional, cultural and culinary knowledge. And a lot of fun! We saw other larger groups during the trek, who again confirmed that it is worthwhile taking some extra money to book locals who pay their employees fairly, enjoy their work and are not just tourism machines ! Thank you for the great time / every time again! * The food was a dream! I would like to especially highlight the performance of the crew, which receives my greatest thanks for the great time: Guides: Elisban & Maribel Chef: Valvino Su Chef: Grimaldo And support by: Hugo E., Julián, Fredy
The guides were great and helped with whatever problem, plenty of food (and good!), good camps and fun activities. the trek itself is beautiful, although the second day can be hard and long.
It was physically and mentally difficult but well worth it!
