SALKANTAY TREK + MACHU PICCHU

HIKING GUIDE

Located northwest of Cusco, the Salkantay trek offers spectacular mountain views, dazzling turquoise lagunas, and a trail taking visitors to one of the seven wonders of the world, Machu Picchu. Since the infamous Machu Picchu is the prize for completing this trek, it also comes with the largest crowds. It will take four to five days to complete this 55-mile hike. It is quite possible to do this trek without a guide. The availability of public transportation, lack of permit requirements, and easy-to-follow trails make this a great hike for moderate to advanced hikers to do independently. Even though this is the most trafficked trail in this guide, do not be fooled into thinking this is without a challenge. With the highest point reaching 15,279 ft, there is a severe amount of uphill and downhill to climb.
