Peru

Hey all! I am in the process of lining up a Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu with two of my friends. We are doing a 5 day/4 night trek with a guide service, and we have selected Karikuy Tours. Info on the trek can be found at http://www.karikuy.org/salkantay-trek . The trek starts at $339/person, but if we find a few more people, it will be less expensive… We are hoping to head out on the trail on October 24th, as we only have 3 weeks in Peru and have a few other items on the agenda! We are three awesome ladies from Idaho and Oregon, USA, and love to spend time in the woods and on mountain tops!

  1. Hi Annie, that sounds great! I am also in Peru in October and also interested in the Salkantay trek, it looks beautiful. I leave Peru on Oct 27th though. So would it also be possible for you to do the trek a couple of days earlier? 20th for example would be perfect.

    Best wishes, Kilian

  2. Hello, Annie and her friends and Kilian,

    any interest in doing the trek independently without a guide?
    I’m also planning on hiking on the 21st, and 20th or 24th is fine for me too.
    It’s often done independently:

    I found a lot of resources online on trekking independently, and apparently it’s pretty easy to navigate:)

    It could save 100-150$ per person
