Trek to Salkantay – Machu Picchu 5 days

 

The famous Salkantay Trail to Machu Picchu was recently included among the 25 best routes in the world. The route from Cusco to Machu Picchu is an ancient and remote Inca Trail, which is in the same region of “Inca Trail to Machu Picchu”, where huge mounds of snow combined with lush tropical forests.

 

Located fifty miles northwest of the city of Cusco in south central Peru, near the Cordillera de Vilcabamba, at 6271 meters above sea level (20,574 feet).
The road to Salkantay is close to a glacier whose summit was revered for thousands of years by the native of Peru. The name Salkantay is a Quechua word meaning “wild mountain”.

 

The road to Salkantay is designed as an alternative route to the traditional Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. Outside the traditional way, this is a new experience for travelers looking for adventure, on a walk with more privacy and authenticity. With spectacular views, the ride offers a variety of climates and microclimates that will be difficult to forget.
