Worried that you could not get the permit for the Inca Trail? We bring to you an opportunity to participate in an equally exhilarating journey through the Andes all the way down to Machu Picchu. Join us on this 4-day trek and travel through a variety of landscapes, ranging from snowcapped mountains to tropical forests and finally dense jungles, past small villages, towns and highland pastures, skirting herds of llamas en route.

Cross the Salkantay Pass (4650m). Enjoy the serene beauty of Humantay Lake (4200). And visit some of the most important Inca sites in Peru, including the majestic Machu Picchu.

Other Practical InformationThe Salkantay trek is a great alternative to the Inca trail trek and better suited for more adventurous trekkers who are able to handle higher altitude and longer distances. An uphill trek to reach the famous Apacheta Pass at 4650m is not too strenuous, since it is at the beginning of the trek. But it does require stamina and a little time in Cusco to acclimatize to the altitude
