Salkantay Exploration

Let’s enjoy one of important Apps of the Incas passing closer through there

Day 1: We will leave Ollantaytambo by private transport at 5AM and drive approximately 4 hours to Mollepata. In Mollepata we will have a short break to stretch our legs, meet our mule men as well have a last chance to buy any more goodies you would like for the trail. We will then continue on, in a truck to Cruzpata. We will start out trek from here, we will continue along the road by foot approximately 4-5 hours to Soraypampa. Here is our first nights camp. Located at 3800masl, with breathtaking views of both Glaciers, Salkantay and Huamantay.

Day 2: We will start the day with a nice, hot and hardy breakfast around 6:30 AM.
After one last hot coffee or tea, we will start our accent to the pass. This should take around 3-4 hours to arrive at Abra Salkantay (4,620m). After a refreshing rest in the Open, we will begin our long decent to camp. Stopping along the way for a delicious box lunch at one of the many beautiful picnic spots. The descent will take us through three noticeable different climate zones. From the pass it will be around 3-4 hours to arrive at the Chaullay out camp (2,900m). This will be the most strenuous day of the trip.

Day 3: Today we will wake to the sounds of the local roosters well before breakfast. After enjoying breakfast we will start the day with a short walk along the road till we reach the trail head where we cross the river and begin a beautiful 5 hour walk along the river. All the while descending deeper into the jungle. Upon reaching the Playa (2,100m) you will have the option of hiring a car or continuing along the road on foot for 3 hours to Sta. Teresa. We will spend the afternoon relaxing in Sta. Teresa and once the sun goes down we can enjoy the evening in the Cocalmayo hot springs.

Day 4: Today is full of options and possibilities. The choices include a zip-line, tours of coffee plantations and botanical gardens, or a simple leisurely day. After breakfast we will go on your chosen adventure or take a car to the hydro-electric plant. From here we start a beautiful 2.5 hour stroll along the train tracks in the valley below Machu Picchu to arrive at Aguas Calientes for the last night before Machu Picchu.

Day 5: At long last you arrive to the fabled city of Machu Picchu. Enjoy yourself!
