This is a more adventurous and mountainous route than the classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and it also takes you to a higher altitude. We will take you through incredible landscapes and several micro-climates, each with its own exotic flora and fauna. This is a unique and specially designed 4-day Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu, with incomparable views of the snow-capped Humantay and Salkantay Mountains. Trek off the beaten path, following our unique route where you also visit two incredible crystal clear glacial lakes like the Humantay Lake. Hike through the Andes Mountains and camp at our private sites which are more remote, less crowded and off the typical path. Follow the remote foot path up to the forgotten Inca Ruins of Llactapata where you have an extraordinary view of Machu Picchu. Your last morning, you visit the 7 New Wonder of the World and UNESCO World Heritage site: Machu Picchu!

SAM Travel Peru is the best choice if you want to enjoy the Salkantay trek in Peru with specialists in creating our own signature routes. Come see why our customized treks to Machu Picchu like the Salkantay trek are so much more unique than what tour operators offer.
