Our Purpose

We are Peruvians...passionate about our mountains and committed to sharing our rich Andean history and culture through lodge-to-lodge journeys.


The Salkantay lodge to lodge hike… tiring but wonderful. Real sense of achievement and learning a little about the highlands of Peru. Can’t wait to return and do another trip.

Susan H.

Thank you to MLP–you gave us the experience of a lifetime. We benefited from the knowledgeable and committed leadership of our guide and the first class service…MLP are well-respected by the local communities in which they operate.

Jo Z

As a couple who has NEVER hiked a day in our lives, the organization of the seven days far exceeded any expectations we had.

Nic C.

We have been trekking with Antonio for a week and I could not be happier with the journey. I was traveling by myself, but the staff made me feel very welcome and safe.

Jill H.

We just spent an amazing 7 days on The Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu. The entire trip was so well organized…[and] our guides were fantastic. A journey of a lifetime.

Susanne H.

Despite some unusually bad weather, our guides were always encouraging and the lodge staff were ready to warm us up after a hard day of hiking–always working to make your trip an amazing experience. We highly recommend MLP!!

Hanna F.

Authentic experiences through many special communities such as Choquecancha, expert local guides and very comfortable lodges in the Andes. A transformational and inspirational journey!!

I just got back from the Salkantay Trek. Our guides were the best. They shared so much with us about their country, their heritage, and their love of nature. I came home with a deep respect for the people of Peru and all their culture has to offer. MLP is a class act from beginning to end.

Cindy M.

Our plan was not to bring our 8 year-old daughter [but] due to changes in timing we decided to bring her. I can’t imagine not having her with us on this incredible adventure. She learned so much, she was engaged in all the different cultural excursions as well as ALL the treks.

"We just came back from the 7-day Sacred Valley experience with MLP and it was the best vacation that we’ve ever had. Wonderful immersion in Andean culture and hikes through the lesser trod area, meaning not having to deal with crowds and a more authentic experience. Our guides were patient, more than willing to impart their extensive knowledge and super helpful overall. Lodges were beautiful and had excellent service. Cap the tour off with a visit to Machu Picchu and it could not have been more perfect! Thanks MLP!".
"The thing that I enjoy the most of being a guide is to share my culture and my country. It's a bit to teach, to share, to learn and to make people happy". Meet Silver Ballón, one of our MLP guides, in this episode of Stories from Within. Book your adventure in the link in our bio.
