Inca Trail to Machupicchu | Trek to Choquequirao | Trek Salkantay to Machupicchu | Tours in Cusco


The Salkantay Trek, also known as the New Inca Trail, is North of Cusco. It reaches a maximum altitude of 4,600 meters (15,180 feet) above sea level at the highest point.

Weather: It's very rainy from December to March, that's why the trail is closed on those months. The rest of the year, it's very sunny and hot during the day, but cold in the night. Temperature drops below 0C (32F) at night, especially from June to September.

Surroundings: On the first days, you will see three snow-capped mountains: the Tucarhuay, the Salkantay (6,264 meters / 20,671 feet), and the Huamantay; the views are stunning. On the last days, you will go through the cloud-forest, there the weather is more tropical and the vegetation is lush. You will see waterfalls and fruits plantations along the path. It is amazing how fast the sceneries change along the trail, from snow-capped mountains to banana plantations in only couple of days.

The Inca Trail has become harder to book due to the new regulations, and also it has lost its charm due to the crowds of tourists who do it every day. That's the main reason why we are offering a new trail to Machu Picchu that has the beauty of the first one but preserves the sense of adventure and untouched that the Inca Trail has lost.

You can hike the Salkantay trek in 5 days starting at Mollepata town, or in 4 days starting at Soraypampa campsite. The only difference is that on the 5 days trek you will hike an extra day from Mollepata town to Soraypampa campsite, the other 4 days are the same as on the 4 days trek. Below is the description of the 4 days option.
