Back after a 5 day hiking and camping trip....I mafe it, just. It was the most challenging thing I have done in a lkng time, but with a great bunch of young people, ie at least 20_30 years my junior. The Salkantay Trek, for those who cant get on the Inka trail and cheaper. Just enjoying my beautiful accomodation in the sunshine after a relaxing breakfast in the courtyard.
On the fist couple of days we walked 8_9 hours, going up about 2000 metres. On the second day after we reached 4500 m my head started showing signs off altitude, but it only lasted a few hours as we decended after 4600 m. The fish night was very cold as we were close to glaciers, but by the end of the second day we were beginning to get into jungle.
