PERU PATH offers a beautiful and authentic trek in the Andes Mountains with our Salkantay tour. The Salkantay tour is a multiple day hike through some of the most picturesque parts of the lesser known areas of the Peruvian Andes. While on your Salkantay Tour you will ascend to 15,000 feet, trek through beautiful local villages within the valleys and Cloud Forest, as well as have a chance to relax and soak in natural hot springs. Whatever you enjoy, there is surely to be something for everyone while on PERU PATHs Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu.
The Salkantay Trek begins in the morning at your hotel or hostel where we will come and pick you up. We will drive to the trail head which is about two and a half hours at the mountain community known as Mollepata. Here we will grab last minute supplies and possibly a small breakfast before we begin our Salkantay trek. Once we are ready we will meet with our horsemen, porters and chefs that will be accompanying us on the Salkantay tour. These individuals are here for you and will make the entire Salkantay tour possible.
During your time on the Salkantay tour, you will enjoy beautiful locations, eat great local food prepared by our PERU PATH chefs, as well as be able to experience some of the lesser known trails of Peru. The Classic 4 Days Inca Trail sees thousands of guests a month, while the Salkantay Trekking and Salkantay tour sees less than half of the traffic on the Inca Trail. The Salkantay trek is for those trekkers who wish to have an experience that truly is off the beaten path. Depending on your time restraints as well, you can fully customize your Salkantay trek better fit your trekking and traveling style. Just email us in advance and let us know at PERU PATH what you need and we will do everything in our power to make your Salkantay trek a great one.
