Owner description: we are the only inca trail tour operator that has built a house for the porters; porters come to do this job from very far away communities up in the andes and had NO place to stay in in between treks; but NOW, they do have one and is called the llama path porters’ house – any one is welcome to visit this place at anytime.

We are the ONLY agency in cusco that takes porters on vacations; yearly around 50 of them are taken on vacations to different parts of peru as part of an all inclusive treat they immensely deserve from the 330 hard days of work they do to ensure our foreign clientes tours are enjoyable.Anoxia adalah

In 2018 we will be going on the 4th inca trail porters vacations, this time we will be going to trujillo and chiclayo in the northern coast of peru.

The porters vacations is possible ONLY thanks to you who trust in our services provided; as you can see a part of our profits go NOT only to suport the porters vacations but also to support the children after school project.

From the moment we started to plan our trip, llma path was always very good; answering emails and being there on time. My husband and I decided to book a private tour (which can be quite expensive) because we were celebrating our wedding anniversary on the second day of the trek and we though it would be something special if it was just us.Anoxia adalah the trekking started well (our guide was a really nice person) and we were not feeling any altitude symptoms. The views were incredible and this route can be tough as it is shorter in time than other routes so you climb up faster which can be uneasy on the body. When we arrived at our camp, everything was fine. It was extremely cold there at night but the clear sky was so worth it. Dinner time and I didn’t have any appetite; I told our guide and he said it was normal. In the middle of the night, I woke up feeling unwell. I didn’t know if it was food poisoning or altitude sickness, but I spent hours vomiting non stop. The guide gave me some medication but I must have put that out also. When I had nothing left in my stomach, I managed to sleep for a bit.Anoxia adalah in the morning, I was really weak so they said that I could continue the trek being carried by one of the mules. So we continued but eventually, some parts of the trek were too steep or the ground was frozen and slippery making it dangerous to be on the top of a mule as we both could fall. When I had to walk, because I was so weak from the previous night, I was probably making one step per minute, walking curved and I couldn’t straight up my body. When my husband and the guide reached me (I wend ahead on the mule accompanied by a local lady and a local girl), I was short of breath. The guide, thinking that maybe it was just emotional drama of my part, insisted that I should try a little more and that he knew I could make it.Anoxia adalah I don’t blame him for insisting because I believe there are loads of people that give up because of tiredness. I tried to walk two or three more steps when my husband noticed that my lips were starting to get blue. That’s when our guide started to worry as now he knew I wasn’t just being lazy. He had a oxygen bottle with him and that helped for while but I needed to go down the mountain to get better. He started to call his company explaining that it was a more serious situation and we needed assistance. When we walked couple of meters down, I already started to feel better and the fear that something worse could happen has passed. So I encouraged my husband to continue the trek as I really wanted one of us to see how it was there, at the top of the mountain.Anoxia adalah the plan was, the guide would continue the trek with my husband and the two porters (one was the cooking chef) would carry me down as I still had no strength to walk much. The porter and the chef that carried me were amazing people; what we took a day to climb up, they took couple of hours to go down, alternating who would carry me on their back. At some parts I had to walk which it was fine, but I only had one small bottle of water and they had none. The midday sun started to reach us and I started to get seriously dehydrated; I was literally dragging myself. Hours later, I was so happy to finally get to the point where we started our trek (and the place I was told there would be someone waiting for us), but there was no one there.Anoxia adalah we had to continue our walk and now, on a road where there was no place to get water, no houses, no little shops, nothing.. Now I was really seriously dehydrated to the point of seeing a cactus and think of how to get water from it. Porters are used to go up and down the mountains with little water to drink; I lost a lot of fluids from the previous night and now this. As there was no one waiting for us, we walked for another hour on that road and then stopped until one of them found transportation and I finally bought water for all of us at the bus station. From then, we went on three different types of transport and mini vans crowded, with people standing. I would normally consider this as an adventure as I don’t get upset easily but this time, even though I was still seeing the whole thing as a big adventure, I was also really wishing to get to the other end.Anoxia adalah so for llama path guide and porters, I have nothing short of a big thank you for helping me in that tough day but for llama path organization, I have to say there was a lot of faults. They should be better prepared for situations like this and there should be a team just for emergencies, with a car available or even if there was not a car, the office team (or whoever the guide was communicating with), should have sent a taxi to pick us up. Walking for hours under the sun after having lost loads of fluids plus hypoxia symptoms was not easy. I would recommend llama path for the trek itself but I hope next time something happens to someone else, they will be better prepared.

I can provide a strong ditto to jonathanm’s review as my wife and I were 2 of the 7 other people on the same trip! 🙂 likewise, neither of us had ever hiked in peru.Anoxia adalah in fact, neither of us had ever been south of the equator. As stated, our guides – roger alberto were terrific. And the food was truly fantastic – in addition to being tasty and healthy, the presentation was absolutely amazing and that’s not even considering you are in the middle of the peruvian andes! The third night, they baked a cake for us. I’m not really sure how they pulled that one off! One thing I’d like to point out is that for a group of 12 customers, there was a crew consisting of 1 chef, 1 sous chef, 1 waiter, 15 porters, and 2 guides. This is a well-oiled machine. Everyone has their job to do and they do it well. Every afternoon camp is set up and waiting for you when you arrive.Anoxia adalah your assigned tent has all your equipment already in it. The cooks’ tent and the dining tent is setup and ‘happy hour’ is followed by dinner. Then in the mornings, you’re on your way and everything is torn down like clockwork, packed up and carried on to the next campsite. When the porters would pass us on the trail, we would cheer for them. And when we made it into camp, they would cheer for us. Llama path was truly exceptional. I definitely recommend them. Side note: one thing that had an impact on me is that llama path built a dormitory for their porters. It’s a 3 story construction, the first 2 stories being housing and the third (top) floor is an educational facility. It’s a win/win. Llama path gets better porters because the porters can better themselves.Anoxia adalah when we left cusco via bus to start our trek, we stopped and picked up our porters from this facility. Alberto brought us in for a quick tour. He said a lot of these guys would be living on the streets without this kind of setup. When porters are on a trek, other crews are rotated into the dorm as needed. I thought this was truly a great idea and really sets llama path apart from the other tour operators.

The classic inka trail was on our bucket list and we chose llama path after a lot of research on trip advisor and other sites. They were the BEST choice! Everything was well done from the pretrip briefing to the final meal in aguas calientes. Our guides marco and milton, chef rolando, assistant chef, and the team of porters were amazing and made the trip one we will never forget.Anoxia adalah marco and milton were very knowledgeable, passionate about their culture and seemed to love what they were doing. The porters also seemed happy and appeared to be better treated than those in other companies. The llama path porters had good boots, uniforms and proper jackets, while many other group`s porters we saw wore sandals, shorts and torn clothing. The level of organization by the guides, cooks and porters was amazing. They always had a dining tent set up, complete with wash basins, soap and drying towels. Our tents were always set up prior to our arrival in camp so we could have a rest if needed. As for the food, it was fabulous. Every meal had a variety of dishes to choose from and everything was hot and fresh.Anoxia adalah they served soup, rice, fish, chicken, beef, stir fried vegetables, potatoes, as well as desserts, coffee, juice, water,teas, cocoa and popcorn for happy hour. At the end of day three, we even had a cake (which was delicious). Despite taking altitude medication, abstaining from alcohol and climatizing in cuzco for four days, my husband ended up with altitude sickness part way though day two and into day three. He could not keep food down and struggled to catch his breath. Marco and milton were very concerned and one of them was always nearby to ensure we got to camp safely. Their encouragement and positive attitude were a bit help to overcome this tough situation. I am very glad we chose llama path as they truly made the trek special.Anoxia adalah the classic inka trail was on our bucket list and we chose llama path after a lot of research on trip advisor and other sites.
