SALKANTAY TREK IN PERU

The Salkantay (6264m/20551f) is the most representative mountain of the Inca, situated in the mountain range of Vilcabamba. The daylight in this region is particularly beautiful and offers a wonderful view of the diverse landscape and the tropical forest. During the journeys, you can also have the opportunity to visit local farmers to know and understand a little about their Andean life, customs and traditions. Therefore, this option for trekking perfectly combines cultural and natural beauty. You have also the opportunity to end this trek in the amazing, mystical site of Machu Picchu.
