Salkantay Trek diary – Part 5: Santa Teresa and hot springs

 salkantay trek, hiking peru, trekking peru, machu picchu hike

This is the fifth part of my Salkantay Trek, folks. To read the fourth part, please click here. Today we will leave Chaullay, and this will be the third hiking day of the Salkantay Trek towards Machu Picchu. The last two days were quite challenging, and especially the yesterday’s descent which lasted about 6 hours, left its marks. I don’t know how the other ones feel but by waking up I felt a pretty intensive muscle ache in my legs. So hiking sticks* are very advisable for those trips, folks. At least to mitigate sore muscles.

Free wallpaper – Christmas theme No. 2

While I am working on the third part of my Salkantay Trek diary series, I made another free wallpaper for you, folks. 

I designed this one with components of some Christmas candy canes and a mistletoe. Have you ever know that mistletoe is actually a parasite and that the kissing under a mistletoe comes from the Nordic mythology? And what’s the deal with candy? One version says that this candy was “invented” in the second half of the 17th century in Germany. I say: have fun with the wallpapers! You can use the wallpaper both for private and commercial purposes as well.
