Machu Picchu

Our expert local guides take us to Machu Picchu via a less trodden ancient path, showing us the majestic mountains and hidden valleys of Salkantay. We trek through pristine countryside over a 15,000-foot pass, and down undisturbed valleys to the foot of Machu Picchu. Set amid the deeply-incised Vilcambamba range, this high-altitude camping-based route is a premier entry into the uncrowded Peru of old, with breathtaking views of the Inca empire’s heartland. After a total 40 miles of trekking, you arrive, weary and elated, through the classic Sun Gate and into Machu Picchu itself.
