Walking Through Peruvian Clouds: Salkantay Trek 2

Day 3: continues to take us down as we wander our way through the jungle. There isn’t a ton to say about it really so I’ll let the photos speak for me. It was pleasant. We were there at the tail end of their dry season and spring (September) so the flowers were just starting to blossom and baby animals were everywhere. Sort of your typical spring and I had the pleasure of witnessing it. Would love to be there at the tail end of wet season though. I bet the colours are breathtaking.

I hope you enjoy the gallery!

We said goodbye to our group after lunch and went the rest of the way to the train station by car.

Our first view of Machu Picchu Mountain. The ruins are known today as Machu Picchu but this is actually incorrect. The ruins are actually Vilcapampa Grande, Machu Picchu is a mountain.

The train ride was delightful.
