What to expect
  • Day 01: Cusco - Mollepata - Soraypampa The expedition starts in Cusco where we will pick you up from your hotel or hostel at 4:30am. We will then drive from Cusco to Mollepata and have breakfast (not included) before starting your full day of uphill hiking (19 km). We will make stops on the way to see the beautiful scenery of the valley and by lunch time we will see the snowy peaks of Humantay and Salcantay. After lunch, the trip is continued for 3 to 4 hours and you will notice the scenery changing between each ecological level with streams flowing between them. When we reach the campsite we will be at an altitude of approximately 4000 masl and have finished the 19 km trek for the day. After this long trek, your guide will serve you dinner and everyone will be fast asleep in their tents.  Day 02: Soraypampa - Salkantay Pass - Chaullay You will be woken up with a warm glass of coca tea served at the door of your tent to start the long day of trekking. After breakfast the sun god will guide us to see the famous snowy mountain of Salcantay smiling down at us. Little by little we will hike uphill until arriving at Soyrococha for a quick break. We will then reach the highest point of Sakcantay Mountain (4600 masl) where the guide will explain the history of the Inca civilization. We will begin the decent to a campground and stop for lunch. After lunch, we continue to descend until reaching the second campsite, Chaullay, where we will stay for the night. Day 03: Chaullay - La Playa Sayhuyaco - Aguas Calientes This is the easiest day of trekking because it is a 4 hour downhill hike. We will stop to have lunch at Lluscamayo and you will notice the climate change to warmer weather. This is because we will be in the high jungle known as Ceja de Selva. Here there are many small coffee, coca, and banana plantations and we will hopefully see Peru's national bird, gallito de las rocks. We will then take a car to Hydroelectric and from there walk 2 hours on the railroad track to Aguas Clientes.  Day 04: Aguas Calientes Pueblo - Machu Picchu - Cusco  After an early breakfast we will arrive at the Inca ruins of Machu Picchu at about 6:15am. We will take advantage of how early we arrive and enjoy the tranquility of having the mountain to ourselves. This guided tour is for approximately 2 hours but you may have up to 6 hours to hike to Machu Picchu Mountain and other peaks depending on when your train leaves. Your guide will take you back in history to when the Incas thrived on the ruins of Machu Picchu. You will also notice an abundance of llamas roaming around. If your are interested in Huayna Picchu Mountain, please plan that with us ahead of time.

5 day Salkantay trek was so cool and lots of fun. Despite doing it in the rainy season we still had fun. The trek itself didn't seem too difficult of you have already acclimated in Cusco or previously trekked in South America. It was more feeling tired by day 5. The tour was very well organized, good camping accommodation, loads of food. The extra activities of the thermal baths and ziplining really made it. Cheers guys. Mucho gusto.

I booked with Peru Travel Company at my hostel, which was a really easy process. They then paired me up with another group, KB Travel Company to do the Salkantay Trek with. I honestly can’t thank these companies enough for an unforgettable 4 day Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu. It was well organized, the food was amazing (thanks Chef Atilio, Hugo and Vicente). Though I’m not vegetarian they went above and beyond to feed our veggie friends some awesome meals too! Our guide Big Willy was super knowledgeable and passionate about his job. We had so many special moments with Big Willy. I’ll never forget being able to take part in a special Andean thank you to Salkantay Mountain at the top of the pass, or waking up to hot coca tea in bed in the early, very cold hours! Definitely book the Salkantay trek, can’t recommend these folks highly enough!

Our trek to Salkantay was great. Peru Travel Company did a great job of communicating with us before our trek, making sure we knew what we needed, and did a great job of making sure we got everything we need before, during, and after the trek.

I would recommend this trek to anyone, especially those with previous trekking experience.

I booked a couple of trip with Jashar. His patience to answer all my questions and providing me with all the relevant information was absolutely fenomenal. Jashar went out of his way to provide me with the best trip plan that suit my needs and timeschedule. It's really not every day that you come across such a reliable, knowledgeable, patient and service oriented as Jashar.
Highly recommended!
