The Salkantay Trek & Short Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is perfect for those travellers who wish to get off the beaten track and experience a wilderness trek and also hike part of the original Inca Trail. It is a wonderful trek taking you right from the watershed of the Apurimac River to the Urubamba River and around the stunning Mount Salkantay, which is the second largest mountain in Cusco region at 6,277m/20,577ft. This spectacular trail twists and turns, ascends through high mountain ranges and descends down steep valleys, passing through many micro-climates and pockets of misty cloud forest. You will visit wildest Andean landscapes with a number of diverse ecological zones filled with an enormous variety of plants and bird life. Last, but not least, you walk in the footsteps of the Inca on the Inca Trail! The ancient and remote foot path takes you through archeological sites, through the Sun Gate and on to the majestic Machu Picchu itself!
