Edith V.

Edith and her Mother Lucila, are the “Ladies of the mountain” who live in the wild Ahobamba valley between Mount Salkantay and Machu Picchu. I met them in 2011 while exploring the route to climb Salkantay and was immediately impressed by their home in this secluded valley. Over time we became good friends and they sold me land to build a cabin in this magical place the most beautiful valley I have seen that is their private property, where we take hikers on the Salkantay – Ahobamba Trek to Machu Picchu, the only route not overrun with crowds.
