SALKANTAY INCA TRAIL 7 DAYS / 6 NIGHTS
SALKANTAY inca trail TREK TO MACHU PICCHU
The Salkantay to Machu Picchu trek normally takes 7 days and has become popular with trekkers wanting to combine a quieter less trodden route with a visit to the Inca ruins of Machu Picchu. For the first 4 days you will be surrounded with magnificent scenery and rarely see other groups of trekkers. On the fifth day you join up with the Inca Trail at Wayllabamba and continue to Machu Picchu arriving early on day 7.
The trek is only a little more difficult than the Inca Trail, and horses can be used for the first 4 days to carry food and equipment. Since horses are not allowed on the Inca Trail, you'll swap over to using human porters for this final section.
A remote and ancient footpath, in the same region as the Inca Trail, but less traveled and offering more spectacular views, providing a magnificent wilderness alternative for those who wish to escape the more popular trekking routes is the Salcantay Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. We pass through an amazing progression of ecological zones, from sparsely vegetated alpine meadows flanking two spectacular 20,000' glaciated peaks, down through subtropical forest into the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, to arrive later the "Lost City of the Incas", Machu Picchu. Suggested from May through October, dry season.
