The Shoulder of Mt. Salkantay
El Viaje de Peru 2012
I forgot to mention that on the Cachiccata Trek there were no other trekkers. It was amazing.
As our new arrieros, Francisco and Jesus, loaded the horses, the overcast skies parted and delivered an incredible view of Mt. Salkantay. I took as many pictures as possible realizing that traveling during this later season, the rain could settle in at any time. We were sheltered as the rain really started to pour. About thirty minutes later we donned our ponchos and rain gear and started out for Salkentay Pampa, 12,700 ft. The rain subsided and our walk was beautiful. In no time we had our tents up and Augusto was fixing a wonderful dinner.
