Tour Details
Salkantay Inca Trail Trek to Machu Picchu

Confused in choosing Salkantay Trek or Inca Trail? How about experiencing both at once? According to National Geography Magazine, both, Inca Trail and Salkantay Trek are among the best 25 treks in the world. Salkantay Inca Trail Trek of seven days to Machu Picchu from Cusco is one our exclusive treks. We, at Treks in Cusco have designed this exclusive experience. This offers the best of both to our guests in one tour.

Highlights:

The trek, rewards you with diverse views of Andean landscapes, villages and archeological sites. It also takes you along the base of the Salkantay Mountain that stands at 6,271 meters. The best part, on this trek you will also be visiting the picturesque turquoise lagoon, Laguna Humantay.

Salkantay is one of the most impressive and highest snow capped peaks in the southern Peruvian Andes. To the Andean people, Salkantay is one of the sacred “Apus” (Peaks in Quechua).

Along its way to Machu Picchu, the route will takes you through a series of lesser known Inca archeological sites and remote Quechua communities; before you join the traditional 4 days Inca trail to Machu Picchu. This offers a cultural experience while enjoying the beauty. On this route, you will be experiencing the highest points of both treks, Incachiriasca at 5,100 meters and Warmiwañusca Pass or The Dead Woman pass at 4,200 meters.

The route will lead you through mountains above the Urubamba River which follows the course of an old Inca roadway that leads to Machu Picchu. The trail itself brings us a combination of landscapes of high altitude mountain ranges (The Andes) and dense subtropical cloud forest.

This 90 kilometres trek is one of the best experiences of lifetime. It is also an interesting ways to reach Machu Picchu from Cusco.
