5 days/ 4 nights

The Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu is an alternative to the Inca Trail and considered by most to be the best alternative route (and maybe even better!). This magnificent trail is perfect for adventurers who wish to become personally integrated in changing ecosystems from one day to the next. You will walk through sweeping, magical landscapes of a snowy mountain paradise to a tropical jungle where you will find a wide range of animals and medicinal plants and flower varieties.  In order to complete the Salcantay Trek, you need to have a reasonable level of fitness, but age shouldn’t be a barrier. The most important thing is to be well-acclimatized to the altitude. The highest you will trek the entire time is (4, 650 MASL – 15092 FASL). Two days of acclimatization before the trek is ideal for visiting the city of Cusco, its nearby Inca ruins, and the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
