Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu

Last week (23rd- 27th Aug) we fulfilled one of our dreams: trekking to Machu Picchu. The Salkantay trek is a great alternative to the Inca Trail. It is cheaper, less busy and more focused on natural landscapes. We completed a 5 day trek with zip lining and hot springs.

Highest Point: 4,630 m / 15,190 ft

  1. Day: 13 km / 6 hrs
  2. Day: 26 km / 9 hrs
  3. Day: 17 km / 5 hrs
  4. Day: Zip Lining
  5. Day: 13 km / 8 hrs
