Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu 5D-4N

It is an easily accessible walk for everyone, without limitations or necessary permits (at least for the moment) next to the city of Mollepata, Cusco with Machu Picchu, Salkantay Trek are ancient treasures and outside the traditional route located in the same area, like the Inca Trail, where you can see large icy mountains covered with snow that combine with the abundant rainforest.

The name of this mountain of Salkantay Trek is a contraction that comes from Salqa which means sullen, wild and Antay that means producing eyebrows or avalanches; This is an alternate route to the usual Inca Trail for those who did not get to get spaces, we have considered this route of Salkantay Trek as one of the best alternatives since in all this journey we can appreciate the flora and fauna and the tranquility that one needs to to be able to reflect and be in touch with the nature that surrounds us.
