Looking for travellers for Salkantay Trail 1st October

by malika72

Hello

I am planning to do the Salkantay Trail, would like to start ideally on 29th September or 1st or 2nd October and I am looking for other travellers interested to join me and register/book or to provide feedback (including the agency who organised it). I have Llama Paths and Enigma in mind but maybe someone else has another recommendation? As I am not too flexible with the dates, I would like to book already before I arrive in Cusco, to be sure that the hike takes definitely place on any of the 3 dates. Or does someone know whether during that period there are always hikes on that trail and no need to book ahead?
Any feedback is highly appreciated!
Warm regards from Geneva!
Sylvia

I recommend taking a look at Mountain Lodges of Peru, a friend of mine took a trip with them and loved it. They follow the Salkantay path as well. If you're still looking for options, check out this website: http://www.ekoventure.com, they have a database of tons of different trips and suppliers with reivews and everything so that should help you out a bunch. Plus, I believe you can talk to other travelers so you could aks around there for people willing to go on a trip with you. Good luck!

First, I suggest you post your need for travel meet-ups in the VT meetings section.
Second, if you need another recommendation for a hiking agency, check the pages of other VTers who've done treks in Peru. Also, check my general Peru page for further info on a local-based socially/environmentally-conscious hiking agency that we've used before. And do check that page for other info re: hiking permit availability, walking poles, etc.
Realistically speaking, your availability may not be in synch with permit availability. You need to have an adequate amount of time to pre-book a trek like this (including the Salkantay trek that you're planning to undertake) because there are lots of competition for these permits with the strict governmental regulations in place in the last few years that limits the numbers of hikers given entry. The limits (hikers: staff ratio) may not guarantee the availability on your desired hiking dates given that the date in question is fast approaching. Please read more about this topic for your own good.

Good Luck & Enjoy Beautiful Peru!

Travel Tips for Cusco

Diamox

by chukngec

Cusco is somewhere between 11,000 and 11,400 feet above sea level, depending who you believe. Even fit youngsters encounter altitude sickness--at least the headaches, vertigo, etc. Buy the Diamox in advance, and use it. Why go all the way to Peru, and then have a trip ruined for want of a $25-40 medication. It works.

Local Fashion means wearing alpaca and a hat

by AKtravelers

The Sacred Valley of Peru is one of the few places I have been (outside of the Islamic World) where a large number of people have resisted western fashion. Here, many Peruvian women still wear sweaters madefrom alpaca and hats that most Americans would find to be very masculine. Furthermore, almost all the women wear their hair long and in braids. One of the best places to see women so beautifully attired is the Pisac Farmer's Market, which is held every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.
You will notice a pronounced generation gap when it comes to such clothing. The younger generation, exposed to the internet and television, has not adopted these clothing styles. It makes us wonder if women dressed like this will be with us in 30 years. Or, if they are, will they be asking for money to take their pictures like the girls described in our Tourist Trap Tip.

THE TEMPLE DEDICATED TO WIRACOCHA

by marcelo15

During our journey from Puno to Cusco the bus company stopped at a small town called RAQCHI, where we had the chance to visit this amazing ruins that i didn`t expect to see.
This is the temple dedicated to Wiracocha, who was the father of Pachacutec...
The infracture is well preserved and the walls are just amazing...

Hand crafts

by chancay about Mercados, expecially the one in Pisaq

I would like to recommend especially the market of Pisaq to boy souvenirs or other hand crafts. In Cusco you also find a lot of offers, but the Pisaq market shall offer better quality and a bigger variety. Besides there are always some interesting events for tourists coming with the market as e.g. traditonal dances and music.
