Holiday review by Mr David Hawkins

Name: Mr David Hawkins

Date of trip: 03/08/2016

Number of people: 2

We are not extroverts and generally travel alone as a couple. But we did very much enjoy the cameraderie of the party on our Salkantay trek. Also deeply moving was the blessing ceremony from the "Inca shaman" at the Huaymantay glacier lake. Mountain Lodges gave us unexpected treats every day - and we enjoyed every moment.
