I just completed full write-ups on this blog for the Ausangate Trek, and the Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu. Looking through my photos, I was consumed with the overwhelming urge to return to the beautiful country of Peru. There are times when words simply cannot do justice to a thought or emotion. In these times, I rely heavily on photo and video to bring my adventures back to life. Here are my 20 photos that will make you want to visit Peru.
1.) A visit to Machu Picchu is near the top of most traveler’s bucket list. This is one of those rare travel destinations that actually lives up to the lofty billing. The sharp mountain peak in the middle of the photo below is Huayna Picchu. Hiking to the summit of one of the highlights of our entire trip.

These are incredible!
Stunning photos. I took the Jungle Trail to Machu Picchu but these make me want to go back and do the Salkantay Trek as well!
Nice! Thank you!
So beautiful! And just this morning I decided my next big trip spring 2016 will be Peru and Bolivia, so I was pretty stoked to see these pics!
Awesome! That should be an awesome 2016!
These are beyond “Like.” I LOVE this. Beautiful photographs. And yes, I really want to go for a walk there.
Thanks! Glad to hear they’ve inspired you!
Really awesome photos Drew. I wish I had a knack for photography, but when I hike I usually just try to survive. No time for that photo shit Lol
Thanks! haha, sometimes it’s hard to frame things up while blasting up a hill at high altitude. It’s always a nice excuse to take a break though 🙂
Overwhelming snaps !
I’m sold!! Its on the list 😊
Nice, have fun!!
Thank you, Sonia!
If Machu Picchu wasn’t already on my hiking list…hopefully within the next 2 years….it would be now after seeing your awesome photos. Thanks for sharing them!
Thanks! Glad to hear you’ll be visiting!
