The distinctiveness of this incredible trek enables you to see the change in different ecological floors, from subtropical areas and stunning peaks and glaciers, to finally reach the acclaimed ‘Lost City of the Incas, Machu Picchu.’

TREKKING Salkantay

The first steps of this exciting journey begin in Mollepata, west of Cusco, a different place from the rest of the Machu Picchu-bound Inca trails. After a few exciting and challenging days at altitudes above 4,000m the trek will see us descend to join the traditional Inca Trail beyond Paucarcancha at Huayllabamba. This unique itinerary of superb walking with fewer trekkers allows you to fully appreciate and relish in breathtaking Peruvian nature and Andean peaks.

You will experience roar, dramatic scenery not seen on the Classic Inca Trail. We will explore the beautiful Rio Blanco Valley before crossing an exceptionally steep and snowy high pass at an altitude of 4,600m – the Salkantay Pass. Trekking under the grand, snow-girt mass of the thrilling Sacred Inca mountain, Salkantay (6,264m) will totally astound as the south face of this revered peak towers high above us. Mesmerising panoramic views across the sprawlinMachu Picchug Valcabamba Range will captivate the senses and make every step of your trekking adventure exceptionally memorable.

If you desire a trek with an unparalleled and exclusive difference the Salkantay – Machu Picchu adventure is for you. With fewer distractions and disturbances than you encounter on the Inca Trail this is the number one alternative.
