About
Salkantay, a 6,272 m. peak in the heart of the Cusco region, is one of the most beautiful mountains in the Andes and one of Peru’s best and well-known treks. Over the course of four days, you’ll pass by a beautiful glacial lake, up and over the Salkantay Trek pass (4,650m), and descend down into the dense vegetation of the Peruvian cloud forest to finally see Machu Picchu and explore this ancient citadel.
