The Salkantay Trek is an ancient trail which will allow you to greet the morning sunlight at the foothills of the Salkantay mountain (6.270 msl). At the highest point of the trail, the Salkantay pass (4.600 msl), you'll be rewarded with a stunning view: the great Apu Salkantay, the small pastures and some archeological Inca sites will take your breath away. From the pass we'll descend into cloud forests – the outskirts of the Peruvian jungle, take a refreshing bath in the hot springs of Cocalmayo until we finally reach the sanctuary of Macchu Picchu, from there we will take the train back to Cusco.
* National Geographic Adventure Travel Magazine named this amazing trek one of the best 25 treks of the world.
