TOUR DESCRIPTION:

 

Day 1: Cusco - Mollepata – Cruzpata - Soraypampa

 

We will pass to picked up from their hotels at 5:00 hrs, and then are conducted for about 3 hours northwest towards the Apurimac Valley, till we reach the little village of Mollepata, located at 2800 meters above sea level.

 

During the ride visitors will have the chance to see the sunrise over the Salkantay Snow Mountain (6271 m), an impressive view you will never forget. Once we had reached Mollepata zone hikers will have breakfast and then will get ready to start this unique journey towards the lost city of Machu Picchu. From this point we will start to ascend winding valleys full of shrub vegetation, where hummingbirds are seen frequently. The expedition will be supported by a group of horse mans and horses at this point. After approximately 5 hours we will reach the zone of Soraypampa (3850 m), where we will pitch our tents, have dinner and spend the night. This will be the coldest place on the trail, so we strongly suggest bringing warm clothes for this first night.

 

Day 2: Soraypampa –Salkantay Mountain - Chaullay

 

Early after breakfast, we leave the campsite of Soraypampa and continue our hike. On this day we will walk up hill for a few hours, seeing along the way the impressive HUmantay Snow-capped Mountain and a beautiful lagoon called Yanacocha.

 

Eventually we will reach the highest pass of the trail, at 4600 metres above sea level, located between the Salkantay Mountain and the Tukarhuay Mountain. From this point we will be able to see the Andean Mountain Range, with a series of glaciers around. Afterwards we will descend, stopping along the trail for lunch, and later on we will continue descending towards Chaullay, an area with a tropical climate, located at 2850 metres above sea level. At this point we will pitch again our tents, and afterwards we will have dinner. Overnight in Chaullay.

 

Day 3: Chaullay – Playa Sahuayaco – Hydroelectric Train Station- Aguas Calientes

 

Early in the morning our porters will wake you up, and then you will have breakfast. Later on we carry on our hike towards Lluscamayu. The scenery on this section of the trail offers lush vegetation, passing native communities, beautiful waterfalls, agricultural fields of coffee, and some fruits, typical of these regions. After at the place called La Playa, where visitors will have some free time to refresh at the shore of the river. Later on we will take a truck that will take us from La Playa to  the hydroelectric train station,  afterwards will head to the rail road to wait for the train that will take us to Aguas Calientes.

 

This is a popular resting place for those who do the Salkantay Trek, here you may recover in the hotel provided by our Agency, or go up to relax at the Hot Springs ( thus it’s name Aguas Calientes) located on the upper section of the town. Aguas Calientes has developed quite well in the last years, thus, today you can find here internet access, bunch of restaurants and pubs, ATM machines and souvenirs shops utterly everywhere. Overnight at the designated hotel at Aguas Calientes.

 

Day 4: Welcome to the Sanctuary of Machu Picchu

 

At around 5:30 am, soon after breakfast we will take the local bus that will take us up to the Sanctuary of Machu Picchu. In a matter of 20 minutes we will have arrived in Machu Picchu. (It is a good idea to come to the ruins early, as there are no many people, only a few groups.Once here, our guide will show us the most important sectors of this great Inca City, such as the Intiwatana (Solar Clock), the Sun Temple, The urban sector, the agricultural sector, among others.Machu Picchu was long thought to be legendary. Then in 1911, the explorer Hiram Bingham stumbled upon it remains. But while the walls and chambers have been extensively studied in the years since, the purpose of this ancient site remains unclear. Machu Picchu stands 2,430 m above sea-level, in the middle of a tropical mountain forest, in an extraordinarily beautiful setting. It was probably the most amazing urban creation of the Inca Empire at its height; its giant walls, terraces and ramps seem as if they have been cut naturally in the continuous rock escarpments. The natural setting, on the eastern slopes of the Andes, encompasses the upper Amazon basin with its rich diversity of flora and fauna.

 

The guided tour in Machu Picchu will last about 2 hours, and afterwards you will have free time to explore the ruins on your own, and if you wish, you might climb the Huayna Picchu Mountain, the huge mountain that appears on the background in every classic picture of Machu Picchu. It takes about one hour or so to get to the top, following very steep stairs, though is a little hard, at the top you will be rewarded with one of the most impressive views in your lifetime. Later on, we will take the bus down to Aguas Calientes, where we will have lunch and also where we catch the train back to Cusco. At Aguas Calientes, if you wish, you can go to relax in the thermal baths. The hot springs are located on the upper section of the village; visitors may ask their local guide how to get there. Finally, at around 4:00 pm, we take the train to the city of Cusco, arriving there after nightfall. Overnight at the designated hotel in Cusco.

Frequently Asked Questions-(FAQ)

  • How difficult is the Salkantay Trek To Machu Picchu?

    You just need to remember that you are able to go at a speed that is comfortable for you. Take your time, pace yourself, and enjoy. Salkantay Trek is considered a moderate hike, not a technical hike but high altitude may affect some people.

  • Are Trekking poles or Sticks  necessary?

    We recommend the use of Trekking poles, especially for those passengers with known knee problems. There are multiple times during the trek that a Trekking poles is handy, be it ascending a mountain or walking along the rough trails.

  • Is altitude sickness common? And how high is the Salkantay Trek?

    It's impossible to predict who will be affected by altitude. Your ability to adapt to high altitude is determined by your genetic makeup and has little to do with fitness or health. Most people will have no problems as long as they take the time to acclimatize properly. A full 2 days spent in Cusco (3399m), taking it very easy and drinking plenty of water is enough for some people but if you can arrange to have minimum 2-3 days in case of any travel disruptions as well then this is what we recommend as there is also so much to do here!. The highest point you will reach while hiking the Salkantay Trek reaches 4590m on the 2nd day.

     

  • Will I need to bring water?

    We recommend that you purchase a 1.5 – 2 liter bottle of water to take with you on the first day. Every night during the trek, we will boil water so you can refill the same bottle every morning before setting out. If you are planning to drink from any streams or waterfalls, we strongly suggest you bring water purification tablets or filters.

    Also, you will be able to buy water along the way on Day 1, for the first few hours of Day 2, then again on the afternoon of Day 3, and of course at Machu Picchu.

     

  • Is the trail still good during the rainy season?

    Some people actually like to go during the rainy season because there are fewer tourists but we say please be prepared for wet weather and have suitable clothes and equipment. Possibly snow so be prepared for a possible change of route if a pass is deemed unpassable by the guide.

    We do not recommend this trek in the months of January, February and March.

     

  • Will I be able to witness the sunrise at Machu Picchu?

    You first encounter Machu Picchu as the sun rises over the high mountains encircling it. It is already dawn but this impressive moment of Machu Picchu coming out of the shadows of the looming mountains is awesome.

     

  • Will I be able to climb Huayna Picchu Mountain?

    As long as you book and pay well in advance for certain dates in high season it may be necessary to pay 3 -4 months in advance, Last minute bookings of this trek will possibly miss out on permits in high season so we can include the Montaña Machu Picchu permit instead, The trail to HuaynaPicchu is safe, very steep with use of chains and not recommended for those with vertigo. It is about an hour and a half round trip. and there are only 2 times during the day it can be climbed with a sign in and out security system.

     

  • What is an ISIC card? How can I use it to get a discount?

    This card means International Student Identity Card (ISIC) and is the internationally accepted form of student identification. The government  accepts ISIC for discounts for the entrance to Machu Picchu. You must scan your ISIC card to you at the time of your booking and carry your ISIC card on the trek.

     

  • Will I need any extra money?

    It is indispensable such as the natural hot springs in Aguas Calientes (10 soles), and/or Cocalmayo hot springs in Santa Teresa town and  tips for your trekking staff, souvenirs, snacks in Machu Picchu, bottled water, drinks, etc. You should take at least 300 soles as emergency money.

     

  • Do Tour guides speak English?

    Completely fluent in English. Our guides are also one of the most popular aspects of our tours some of them being historians and archaeologists and all demonstrate a great passion for their culture and heritage.
