Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu 5D/4N

star-5
The Salkantay trail is the most popular alternative to the Classic Inca Trail. As well as being considerably less crowded, it also offers a more challenging hike over a greater distance. This extra challenge is rewarded with climbs to some of the most spectacular mountain vistas, trekking through an exciting variety of different landscapes, visits to iconic Inca ruins and the experience of camping in some of the most remote but beautiful locations in the Andes. Using the vast experience of our professional guides, we have created this brand new itinerary that reaches areas of the trail far less trodden than many others, whilst still including all of the highlights of other more standard Salkantay treks. We believe that taking the path less travelled really adds to the unique and unforgettable experience of a trek in the Andes.

Salkantay Trail to Machu Picchu - 5 day tour

Salkantay Trail to Machu Picchu - 5 day tour

star-5
By most argued to be the best alternative route to the famous Inca city of Machu Picchu. This beautiful but strenuous hike brings you across one of the highest and most imposing mountains of the Peruvian Andes; the sacred mountain of Salkantay (6271 masl). According to some authors the name of this mountain is a contraction that comes from ‘Salqa’’= ‘huraño’ or ‘wild,’ and ‘Antay’ = to produce ‘celajes’ or ‘avalanches.’ The trek offers a wide variety of magical landscapes including Quechua communities, Inca ruins, jungles with a wide range of animals and medicinal plants and overwhelming snowy mountain peaks with breath-taking sights. The trek requires a reasonable level of fitness. However, age should not be a barrier for anyone! With the highest point of 4650 masl, the most important factor is to be well-acclimatized to the high altitude. With professional guides, we guarantee a life changing experience during this tour!
