Follow the path of the Incas on the Salkantay Trail, an epic alternative trek to Machu Picchu
PRESENTED BY Kim MacQuarrie, Peru Explorer & Four-Time Emmy Winner

The Salkantay Trek is celebrated for the diversity of scenery it offers, beginning in high Andean terrain and gradually transitioning to lush cloud forest. Before the trek, spend a few days in Cusco acclimating to the elevation and your guide will introduce you to the rich culture of the Inca heartland. Then embark on the challenging 4 day trek. Spend the first night camping at the base of Apu Salkantay, a sacred mountain worshipped by Andean people since Incan times. After a restful night in a hotel at the base of Machu Picchu, explore the mystical citadel with your guide the next day.
