Salkantay, pt 1 / by Ava Liu

I went on a four day trek to the Salkantay mountain in the Sacred Valley. The Salkantay Trek is one of the Inca trails to Machu Pichu and it offers stunning vistas in scenery. What I appreciate most about Peru is the vast diversity in natural beauty found within close kilometres. Through four days on foot, we crossed from winter in the snowy Andes to summer in the Peruvian Amazon. 

The Salkantay trek wasn't easy, but it was very do-able. No surprises here: I was very slow. Without further ado, here are some photos from day 1 and 3 (I unfortunately lost the roll of film from day 2):
