Apu Salkantay Trek 6 days


The Salkantay Trek (or Salcantay Trek) is a trek that goes through one of the highest and most stunning mountain in the Peruvian Andes, called the Salkantay Mountain. This mountain is 6.271 meters / 20569ft high what will give you an impressive experience of the free space you will have during this trek.



An impressive view alongside the Apu Salkatay.

Machu Picchu is the most famous archeological site because it is one of the seven modern world wonders and you will be able to walk this site two times to enjoy every place there is to see.
