Tour Details

Live the Salkantay Trekking Inca Trail tour towards Machu Picchu, a paradise on the mountains

A magnificent trip through a magical land.

So, you must visit Machu Picchu. A destination, considered one of the 7 modern wonders of the world that will leave you breathless from the moment you first step on its mountains.

It is one of the main tourist attractions in Peru. If you are considering to visit this place, it is likely that you have considered the Inca Trail to start your adventure. However, due to the restrictions and limitations imposed by the National Institute of Culture of the country to travel through this space, the road Salkantay (or Salkantay trekking) has now become the best option.

This is a different route, known as the alternate path to the Inca Trail. Best of all, besides having the same scenery and beauty, it is less crowded than the original Inca Trail, which makes it much more attractive. The snow-capped Salkantay is one of the highest mountains in the Cusco region. It rises to 6,264 meters above sea level.

Exploring the Salkantay trekking Inca Trail is a unique experience that will become one of the greatest adventures of your life. Actually, according to Unesco, this walk is considered one of the best to enjoy in South America.

Within the towering mountains, where the adventure begins…

You will feel a strong connection with nature from the very beginning, since the Salkantay Trekking offers a very diverse and rich journey where you can fully enjoy the geography of this Andean country. Besides, it is an adventure of interesting yet contrasting experiences, with the freezing cold of the mountains and the typical humid heat of the Andean jungle.

Arriving to Machu Picchu implies a 5-day experience. But it is a wonderful trip that will definitely be worth it! Along this road you will have to trek on high trails that exceed 4,630  msnm and then descend and traverse low areas with heights of approximately 1,500 meters above sea level. This is a classic adventure tour that you cannot miss.

If you have already decided to embark in this incredible adventure, discover here the places that you will be visiting during each day of this wonderful tour to this famous Inca sanctuary in Peru.
