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.

Time of year: The best time for the trek is between April and October. You should however expect very cold temperatures. At night temperature drops below 0° C (32° F). In November and December the rainy season starts. If you can handle some rain showers, the trek is still feasible in these months. From January until March rain showers will be relentless, we do not recommend the trek during these months. Please be aware that the weather in the mountains is generally unpredictable.

 

HORSES: During the hike, our horses will carry our camping equipment as well as 7 kg (15 lb) of personal belongings per passenger. If you feel the need to bring along more than 7 kg of personal belongings, you have the opportunity to hire an additional horse and share it with another passenger. Each horse can carry up to 18 kg.

 

Additional services: During your visit of Machu Picchu you can hike up the famous Huayna Picchu for an extra 20 US $. The ascent to Huayna Picchu needs to be booked with the initial ticket, so please request this at the time of booking the Salkantay Trek. (If the hike Huayna Picchu is sold out for the corresponding date, you may alternatively climb up the Montaña across from Huayna Picchu)
