Along the way, you'll stay in comfortable lodges known as "Tambos" - that are manged by the shepherding communities of the high Andes. You'll hike past pristine waterfalls and glaciers, stunning mountain passes (as high as 16,500 feet!) and natural wonders like the famous "Rainbow Mountain." After days of strenuous hiking, you'll get treated to chef-prepared meals of traditional Peruvian cuisine, private rooms and hot showers.
