One laaaast post about our Salkantay Trek. I had the idea of building map of our trek using the GPS data on Stoytcho’s phone photos, and Stoytcho used his know-how to make it happen.
So here you go, an interactive map of our trek, including photos and a few notes on the trail. You can use this to live vicariously through us, or use it to plan your own trek! If you’re doing the latter, we usually dropped pins at forks and indicated which direction we went.
Want to know our experience along the Salkantay? Here are the posts detailing our experience on the hike as two folks who are in decently good shape but have never done a multi-day through hike ever tackling the Salkantay in the January rainy season:
Day 0, Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, hiking Hidroelectrica to Aguas Calientes, and Machu Picchu (words vs pictures).
Want to know what kinds of life you’ll see? Here are some of the prettiest plants, fungi, and salticids along the trail.
Or for the clean pictures-only version of the hike, here’s our post on the Salkantay on 20 photos.
