Salkantay Trek & Machu Picchu 8 Days
Of all the various treks to Machu Picchu, none can compete with Salkantay Trek in terms of scenery. It is a spectacular route, crossing jungles and mountain passes, dotted with sky-blue lagoons. And at the heart of the trek is Salkantay Mountain, which at 6,271m (20,574ft) is the highest peak in the Vilcabamba mountain range and the twelfth highest in Peru. Our trek traverses the flank of this sacred mountain, offering one of the most impressive views in Peru. It is one of the most challenging alternative routes to Machu Picchu, simply because of the high altitude, this route receives less trekkers than the classic Inca Trail, so you can trek through this comparatively remote and natural paradise without the presence of other trekkers, at the same time you may have to share the stunning scenery with Andean condors and other local wildlife.
