• Alternative trek to Machu Picchu ruins.

  • High mountain trek gets you close to the glaciers of Salkantay.

  • Experience a variety of eco-systems from high passes to sub-tropical jungle.

  • Wonderful first view of Machu Picchu from Llactapata.

The Salkantay trek was definitely one of the highlights! We barely saw anyone for the first 3 days so we really felt like we were on an adventure.
