Considered one of the 25 Best Treks in the World by National Geographic Adventure Travel Magazine, the Salkantay trek offers you the chance to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Andes and marvel at the second-highest peak in the region.
The Salkantay trek was the being the first alternate that trail local operators started offering when the Peruvian government got strict about hiking the Inca Trail.
Don’t know what an alternative trek is – or why you might want to consider one? We’ve covered why you should do an alternative trek (like Salkantay) instead of the Inca trail at Choosing your Peru Trek
Trekking Salkantay is an incredible journey through constantly changing scenery which ends at Machu Picchu.
It is only possible to hike Salkantay during the dry season (April-October) as the chance of mudslides make it dangerous to hike during rainy season (November-March).
As trek specialists in the Cusco area each of our Salkantay treks is designed to get you off the beaten track, and away from the crowds. We offer more unique experiences and connection with nature than the other operators!
