While there are many different ways in which you can experience Machu Picchu, the Salkantay camp; Inca Trail Trek is the option that will bring you closest to nature, as you will follow in the footsteps of the Inca who walked the same path hundreds of years ago. Along this hike you will be immersed in Peru’s beautiful and diverse ecosystem as you follow the Apurimac River basin, to the Urubamba River, before heading into Salkantay, Cusco’s second largest Mountain region (6,277m/ 20,577ft). You will walk through lush green valleys, and camp beside turquoise glacial lakes. Your expert guide will show and explain the many archeological sites along the way, as well as the wide variety of flora and fauna.
