Having achieved the goal of running the Rio Baker we loaded up and set off in search of other rivers and adventures further south. There is probably nobody better acquainted than us with the locations of all gomerias (tyre shops) along the Carretera Austral, but fortunately other than a few punctures and a missing knut the Subaru performed superbly and safely delivered us to Villa O’Higgins, the most southern point of this famous thoroughfare.
Salkantay trek to macchu picchu
Having spent in total over 3 ½ months in Cusco it really seemed about time that I got myself to Macchu-Picchu…the reason most tourists visit this area of Peru. However it seemed rather lazy just to get the bus there so Julio and I opted to do the Salkantay Trek (3 days of walking and 1 day visiting Macchu-Picchu) through our friend Jonathan’s company Yupi Adventure: http://yupiadventureperu.com.pe/
