Salkantay Trek - 5 days

Get ready for a life-changing adventure on the trek that was named "one of the 25 best treks in the world" by National Geographic Adventure Travel Magazine.The Salkantay trek is also highly enjoyable because it is not nearly as busy as the over-booked Inca Trail and for this reason it is much more exclusive, less touristy, and will result in a much richer cultural experience for our participants.  This trek was formerly an Incan trade route for coca and potatoes and Apu Salkantay is the highest peak of the Willkapampa Mountain Range with its' highest point reaching an elevation of 20,574 feet (6,271 m). Salkantay was considered by the Inca to be a deity that controlled weather and fertility in the region west of Cusco and its' name comes from the Quechua word sallqa usually translated as savage, uncivilized, or wild hence the mountain is translated as "savage mountain".

Availability

Salkantay 5D does not have the same regulations as the Inca trail in regards to the number of people and permits allowed. However, included on your trek are the permits to Machupicchu and Huaynapicchu, which limit permits per day, maximum of 400 people divided in two shifts. In order to ensure the tickets to Huaynapicchu, it’s recommended to book with at least 3 or 4 months in anticipation, especially for the high season (from May to September). Salkantay 5D can be booked from April to November only, as the rest of the year it is closed due to the rainy season and maintenance work in the area.

GROUP SIZE

Our shared groups are small, from 4-8 people maximum. For private groups, the number of people will be determined by the client.
