You are on your way to Machu Picchu, you are in the middle of the Sacred Mountains overlooking gigantic rock walls reaching thousands of meters into the sky. You are miles away from the next civilization. Miles away from busy life. And all you hear is a soft breeze and the sound of a small river making its way down to the dense jungle. All you see is stunning lagoons turquoise as the Caribbean Sea, snow-glazed glaciers and endless seeming valleys.
The diverse Salkantay Trek takes you away from the crowded paths, into an experience you won’t forget. Be prepared to discover the land of the Incas and encounter some of the most beautiful scenery of Peru. Experience overwhelming mountain landscapes, the vivid rainforest shining in countless shades of green and small authentic villages you pass on your way.
This five-day long hike to Machu Picchu guarantees you amazing views of untouched nature. Be prepared to take an antique Inca-Trail, to camp near the breathtaking Salkantay-Pass under the Andes night sky and to get a taste of Peruvian coffee visiting local plantations.
