On this 4-day hike you overcome the highest point of the trek, which is the Salkantay Pass at 4,550 meters above sea level. You also enjoy amazing mountain scenery with snowy peaks, mountain lagoons and remote Andean villages.
This short Salkantay Trek is an alternative to the classic Inca Trail. This sacred route is a innovative experience for adventure tourists who want a bit more solitude and credibility. With more impressive surroundings, the Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu presents you with the chance of a calm but rich meditation on nature. See itinerary for details.
