What to Expect

The Apu Salkantay road is a very good alternative to the Inca road (and perhaps better), considered by many travelers. This road is perfect for nature lovers, we will pass an altitude landscape with a view of the Apu Salkantay and we will reach the Cusco forest, heading to the citadel of Machu Picchu. In order to complete the path of the Apu Salkantay, it is necessary to have an acceptable physical condition, you must also take into account that age is not an obstacle to be able to make the path.
Two days of acclimatization in Cusco is recommended to make the way to Machu Picchu. The path of Apu Salkantay is considered among the 25 best in the world according to the National Geographic Adventure Travel magazine. The Salkantay road is without a doubt one of the best trekking adventures you can find in Peru.
After the Inca Trail it is the second most popular trek in Cusco and Peru.
