This is a unique 5 day Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu, specially designed with unsurpassable views of the snow-capped mountains of Humantay and Salkantay, the sacred Apus of the Incas. Trek off the beaten path, following our unique trekking route where you visit two incredible turquoise glacial lakes, Humantay and Salkantay. Hike through the Andes Mountain range with its spectacular scenery and views of the colorful valley landscapes below and camp at our private campsite which is more remote, less crowded and off the beaten track. You also visit the fascinating Llactapata ruins, where you have a spectacular view of Machu Picchu, the day before you visit this New 7 Wonder of the World and UNESCO World Heritage site!
