Our Horsemen & Horses

Our horsemen represent local communities such as Mollepata, Upis, Choquequirao, and others. We make sure to employ people who are responsible and dedicated to their work. They do an excellent job transporting your items on mules along the trail. In addition, they take care of luggage safely to each campsite. Without them, we would not be able to give you one of the most incredible travel experiences and unforgettable memories.

Our horsemen are happy to receive a fair salary and benefits at the end of each season. Salkantay Trekking provides all the appropriate mountain equipment and uniforms to each of them. We also know that our staff can be of great help in case of emergency, as they know the area and the trail like the back of their hand.

We are really grateful for their hard work and congratulate them from the bottom of our hearts because, with their great help, Salkantay Trekking improves daily.

In addition to the trekking and camping equipment, we have mules to help us carry the luggage.

Each mule carries 40 kg of hikers' belongings. You´ll have 7 kg for your equipment (including a sleeping bag). Please take these figures into account so that the mules receive the right amount of weight during the route.

What makes these trips different?

We believe that a vacation should be more than a hotel room, a flight and a rental car. It should be more than the sum of its parts. We also believe a challenge can help you grow and a trip can stir the soul. We create journeys worth taking - for the traveler, for the host and for the world.
