Bamba Experience: Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu 4D/3N (Start Trek on Day 1)

Discover a different side of the great Andes mountain range  by taking this alternative route to Machu Picchu. Highlights: Hike among 6,000m Andean peaks Cross snowy high passes with incredible views Reach the comfort of Aguas Calientes town See the Machu Picchu site as it opens ...

Forget the Inca Trail and hike to Machu Picchu along the higher, more beautiful and less touristy Salkantay Trail!

Embark on a challenging 4-day trek along the alternative Salkantay route, crossing over a 4,650 meters high pass where you can marvel at the Salkantay and Humantay peaks standing over 6,000 meters high. Hike along this unspoiled trail, passing through the villages of Soraypampa and Santa Teresa, to discover indigenous mountain communities. See the 'Lost City of the Incas' in the early morning light after having spent time in the town of Aguas Calientes.
