Ultimate Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu


The Salkantay trek is the classic alternative to the Inca Trail, traversing high along the flanks of snowcovered Apu Salkantay, one of the highest peaks in the region, before descending into the cloudforest and high jungle near Machu Picchu. The scenery is dramatic, from high Andean peaks to a unique view of the backside of Machu Picchu, and then, of course, Machu Picchu itself.
