Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu - 4 Days

A complete experience that will leave your body and soul satisfied.

This route is the most recommended, because you can meet the nature of the Andes.

The first day you will visit the Humantay Lake, an attraction in itself, in fact, this is visited by hundreds of tourists a day.

The second day, we will climb to the pass located at 4650 meters above sea level, and the highest point of our route. We will appreciate the snowy Salkantay, the most important of Cusco and that at its highest peak reaches the height of 6271 meters above sea level. Being the second highest in Cusco. In the afternoon we will enjoy showers with thermal waters that come out of a small waterfall.
