Description

There is no one in this world who has not heard of Machu Picchu at least once. However, few people know they can reach there by an alternative trail.

That’s why I come to invite you to enjoy with me the Salkantay trek. It’s a real amazing and wild trek far from the crowds that leads us to the foot of the ruins of Machu Picchu.

The Salkantay trail runs beneath the Salkantay mountain. With its 6271 meters of altitude, it is one of the highest peaks in the Peruvian Andes. Furthermore, it is really special since it is considered a sacred trail as well as the famous Inca Trail. It was recently included among the 25 best treks in the world by the National Geographic.

As for the itinerary, the first 2 days will be dedicated to pass through a high puna landscape. On our third day we will start descending into the forest to finally reach Aguas Calientes, the village of Machu Picchu.

The perfect season to do the Salkantay trek without rains is from May to December. I can lead groups between 6 and 15 participants. All members must have a good fitness level since we have to walk several hours per day.

So, if you want to discover Machu Picchu in a different way, don’t miss the chance! Contact me as soon as you can so we can discuss and plan this amazing 5-day hike through the Salkantay mountain.
