The Salkantay Trekking Company
Salkantay Trekking, Cusco, Peru
Great company to book through! Our guide, David, was really amazing, knowledgable and supportive throughout the trek. The chef was amazing, every meal we had was really good, and there was more than enough food. This company provides all gear: walking sticks, tents, sleeping bags, food, etc. Highly recommend them!
The Salkantay Trek - 3 full days!
Salkantay Trail, Anta Province, Cusco, Peru
Challenging, but amazing trek from Cusco to Machu Picchu! We did the 3 day, 2 night variation. Expect to hike/walk A LOT - 10 hr/day! You sleep in small villages throughout the Andes. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking. Day 2 is really challenging due to elevation and continue to climb higher. We opted for a horse ride for half this day up the mountain which was really amazing also. You're woken up at 5 am with Coca Tea, and a warm breakfast. There is a stop along the way for luncher and little stops for snacks.
