The trek was the most awesome thing I did in my life. It's not an easy trek, but all the effort you put in the way worth it. It's awesome, really awesome.
its a tough trek up through the Salkantay mountain and gets very cold thin air but its a great challange and its all worth it when you get to see Machu picchu!!! The views are fantastic all the way and you really get a feel of how it once was when the incas ruled
We hiked the Salkantay Trail as part of an REI guided tour. Stayed in lodges run by Mountain Lodges of Peru, which is an absolutely first class operation. Phenomenal food and accommodations at each lodge. The trail itself is spectacular. The views of Mt. Salkantay are some of the best anywhere in the world. Trail conditions are a little rugged... 更多

We did the 5 days 4 nights Salkantay Trek, and this was a great hiking experience. You'll need a couple of days to acclimatize in Cusco before hitting the ground. It suitable for both beginners and more experienced hikers. The second day is the most challenging as you start at 3800m (second camp) go through the Salkantay pass at 4630m,... 更多
I just returned home after trekking for 8 days in the Vilcabamba range, up the Salkantay Pass, en route to visit Machu Picchu, with Mountain Lodges of Peru. First off the trek is a great way to see the Andes. Requires a reasonable fitness and the maximum elevation is 4600m at the pass. But the views are phenomenal, and the... 更多

If you are courageous you can jump in, I didn't kkk during the nights was very very cold, so be sure you have enough warm socks and a very good sleeping bag! The way up to the Salkantay mountain is very hard 'coz of the altitude... 更多
