    Fantastic landscape! There are moments that are difficult, but worth it. You feel great when you accomplish everything. There were lots of great views of nature during the trek. One of the best moments was Day 3, after a hard day, we could relax in the hot springs. Our guide, was fantastic was very sympathetic and told us a lot of interesting things.

    I finished the Salkantay trek with a great guide from Bamba Experience. I travelled alone but it was a great experience. I met others travellers, and they supported me when I had difficulties. There were differences with the abilities of the travellers. We ate three fantastics meals by day, and the landscapes were amazing ! I recommend it :)

    I was very anxious about this trip, it was the first time i did a thing like this, but it was one of my best experiences. Our guide was a fountain of knowledge and very fun. I felt secure the entire time. We met other travellers from other companies. But none were as great as Bamba.. The cook was great! We saw a lot of differents amazing landscapes. The weather was excellent during our trek, very quiet hike up the mountain as well, and thanks to our guide we were always on time. We recommend this Bamba Experience

    I think the Salkantay trek is the best experience of my life. The views were fantastic, but the adventure itself was amazing. The group was awesome, and so was the guide, Percy. He was amazing, told us lots of about culture and history. He was very funny, very passionate, a great guy ! Thank you for this trek !

    We just came back from the Salkantay trek. It was an unforgettable experience! Our guide had a lot of knowledge of this area and shared it with us all. Our porters were great, and the chef cooked a lot of yummy food. Bamba is a great company to book with.

    We did the Salkantay trek. It was a challenge, but amazing. We had an amazing guide who told us a lot about the area. We learnt lots of things. There weren’t very many problems of communication because his english was great. The cook prepared a lot of delicious food, and was very attentive to our needs. We took optional horses which we recommend because it was an amazing experience.

  • April 1, 2017

    I was just wondering what the deal with packs are?

    You can bring on the trek a total of 5 kilos for each trekker. (This includes 2.5 kilos for your sleeping bag & mattress plus 2.5 kilos of personal items) that the horseman and mules will carry. For your big backpack we can arrange it to stay in the Milhouse hostel.

    Booking was really easy! The options were displayed clearly and I was able to filter. I especially liked that they recommended a travel insurer because I've never had to get travel insurance. No hassle experience and now I'm ready for my tour!
