From Salkantay to Machu Picchu

The Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu is an alternative to the Inca Trail and is considered by many travelers as the best alternative (and perhaps even better!). This beautiful trail is perfect for adventurers who want to integrate themselves day by day in changing ecosystems. You will walk through magical and scenic landscapes from a snowy mountain paradise to a tropical jungle, where we can find medicinal plants and varieties of flowers. See with your own eyes a living culture, but old, in remote villages hardly seen foreigners!

WHY TREK SALKANTAY?

The Trek of Salkantay is among the 25 best treks in the world according to National Geographic Adventure Travel magazine.

After the Inca Trail, the Salkantay trek is the second most popular trek in Machu Picchu (and much less crowded).
