The trek is an epic, sometimes challenging journey through the Peruvian Andes, and the destination is one-of-a kind. You?ll climb to a mountain pass at 4,200 meters or 13,780 feet, pause to take it breathtaking vistas, and arrive to Machu Picchu the way the Incas did nearly 600 years ago. Along the way you?ll learn about the history and culture of the Andes.
Forget the Inca Trail and hike to Machu Picchu along the higher, more beautiful and less touristy Salkantay Trail! Discover a different side of the great Andes mountain range and get the most amazing views of the mountains by taking this alternative route to Machu Picchu.
This 4 day heart stopping adventure is the perfect combination of an adrenaline pumping 3,000 meter mountain biking descent followed by trekking into the backwoods of the Andes and passing through local villages to see the way of life in mountain communities such as Santa Teresa and Santa Maria. The ultimate ending to an excellent trip is the one and only Machu Picchu archaeological site.
