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.
