Luxury Salkantay Trek to Machupicchu

An amazing new route, another great alternative to having the magic experience to reach the Machu Picchu site avoiding the crowds; this trek is perfect for you! instead of our private Inca Trail tour, consider our Luxury Salkantay trek is an antique and secluded trail located on the opposite side of the classic Inca Trail, encircled by the Sacred Mountains or Apus (Guardians of the Andes) and prolific cloud rainforest. Be ready to go through various climates, villages, and even an original Inca trail to Llaqtapata hidden in the profuse mountain vegetation.

This program will definitively amaze you with its varied attractions from camping nearby the breathtaking Salkantay Pass to a complete guided visit to coffee plantations. Above that, on the final night you will be pampered at hotels of your selection.
