Embark on a challenging 3-day trek along the alternative Salkantay route, with stunning views of the Salkantay and Humantay peaks standing over 6,000 meters high. Hike along this unspoiled trail, with views of pristine snow-covered peaks and a tranquil lagoon.
It would've been nice to receive a final confirmation e-mail the day prior, as this trip leaves at 4am and we basically got up *hoping* they would come to pick us up (which they did precisely on time).
My girlfriend was very ill that day due to foodpoisoning and the driver did everything he could to help, including making a small detour to drop us at the hotel in Palenque before driving to the ruins. I later took a taxi, where he was waiting with the money for my entrance. Very much appreciated and great service.”
