Book your place in this guided, 5-day tour and conquer the trail that is a popular alternative to the crowded, classic Inca Trail. The Salkantay Trek offers more distance, more sceneries and a wider variety of landscapes to enjoy and takes you past one of the highest mountain passes in the country.

Start your trek on the very first day of this trip. Conclude your journey with a visit to the iconic monument of Machu Picchu, which you will also get to glimpse on the fourth day of the tour. Avoid the regulations that have been imposed on the Inca Trail. We have designed this itinerary in such a way that it includes many of the highlights of the popular routes in the Salkantay Trek but avoids most of the areas that are fast becoming crowded with tourists.
