Visiting Machu Pichu is a dream come true for anybody who loves history, and beauty. And while the famed Incan trail brings people from around the world. I would like to guide you to the ruins along the less known, but equally amazing Salkantay trek.
This 4 day journey will take you from the city of Cuzco to the ruins of Machu Pichu and back. And along the way, you will see an abundance of unforgettable and spectacular highlights.
This hiking trek involves a lot of walking, so you should be in good physical condition. However, it is not too demanding where only the most physically fit can participate. Hence making it quite accessible.
A few examples of what you will get to visit and see during this amazing trip includes the following.
- The Salkantay mountain (6,271m)
- Llactapata ruins
- The settlement of Lluscamayo
- La Playa village
- The Hydroelectric Plant
- And of course, Machu Pichu
It is also our goal to make sure you are comfortable during this expedition. That is why we make sure to have everything provided for you, from comfortable camping equipment to a horse in case of sickness or if you find yourself lagging behind. You will also get to enjoy several delicious local Peruvian meals during this trip as well!
Experiencing Machu Pichu is an incredible opportunity. And it is even better when done right. And I have no doubt that the Salkantay trek is not just right, but one of the best ways to experience the famous ruins. So send me a request, and I’ll see you in Cusco.
