Highlights: , ,
This is an alternative to the Classic Inca Trail route and, just another way of reaching the Incan city of Machu Picchu, yet the dominating feature is the towering mountain locally called “Apu Salcantay”. If you love the outdoors and adventure, this is your opportunity to experience this area’s different ecosystems: the Andes, with snowcapped mountains, that climb almost 6271 meters into the heavens and cloud forests, where the vegetation becomes thicker.
Take advantage of this one of a kind opportunity!
