SALKANTAY TREK: BEST ALTERNATIVE ROUTE TO MACHU PICCHU

Mountains & History

Exploring the Salkantay Trek route is an adventure full of activities mixed with different landscapes that will accompany you on your trip to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu. For more than 30 years, this path was used by the first backpackers who ventured, on expeditions of up to a week, in the early years to this Andean landscape full of Queuñas forests and native bushes of Cusco; witnessed the changes over the decades. It was the first alternative option to the Inca Trail route, in the past people spent the night in camping tents, and carried all the outdoor equipment on their shoulders, in contrast now the improvements have been made much easier for visitors, with the implementation of comfortable mountain lodge stations, so you only have to bring your sleeping bag.
