Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu and Rainbow Mountain Adventure with Ma'wa Collective

duration: 9 days

difficulty: Strenuous

group size: 12

experience: Intermediate

Overview

Salkantay Trek is a spectacular route passing through jungles, mountain passes, and dotted with azure lagoons. At the heart of the trek is Salkantay Mountain which at more than 20,000 ft is the highest peak in the Vilcabamba mountain range and the 12th highest in Peru.  

Your trek traverses the flank of this sacred mountain, offering some of the most awe-inspiring views in Peru. It’s one of the more challenging alternative routes to Machu Picchu, simply because of the high altitude. It also receives far fewer trekkers than the classic Inca Trail, so you can walk through this natural and remote paradise comparatively free from fellow humans, but you might have to share the stunning scenery with Andean condors and the other local wildlife.
