A Photography Entry of Hiking in the Andes

Hiking in the famous Andes Mountains might be a good choice on your bucket list. It is one of the wild side of South America that provides hikers with abundance of options to take. Many of these treks are at high altitude, so be ready for that. The pictures from my album were mostly taken during my Lares Trek in Peru, some of those were from my biking experience in Sacred Valley.

My virgin trip to South America was really exotic. I can’t wait till I step foot onto South America continent again.
