Ultimate Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu with Native Guides

Salkantay is one of the most varied and most beautiful routes to Machu Picchu. We make our way through picturesque valleys, beautiful lakes and waterfalls and breathtaking snowcapped mountains - including The beautiful Salcantay Mountain considered sacred by local villagers. We take five unforgettable days to enjoy each magical location. To feel the energy of the area, you'll have the opportunity to join Andean healers from local villages for daily meditation and reflection. As a final treat we will join the Inca Trail for a short section before arriving to Machu Picchu as the sky brightens for sunrise.
