  • After an early breakfast, you will be met at your Cusco hotel and start the journey to the starting point of the trek.
  • The drive will last for about one hour and a half, and along the way, you will stop to visit the beautiful ruins of Tarawasi near the town of Limatambo. You will then continue on the route past the village of Mollepata and up to Marcoccasa, where you will meet your trek team and start hiking.
  • Following the Camino Real (Royal Path), you will first hike for about 6 hours through picturesque scenery. This part of the trail is moderately difficult and therefore a perfect path to ease into the trek and acclimatize to the high altitude.
  • You will have some time to rest and have lunch on the way (boxed lunch). Your hike will end in Soraypampa at the first mountain lodge, the Salkantay Lodge, named after the majestic Mt. Salkantay, the highest peak in the region at 20,600 feet (6,270 meters).
  • Spend the afternoon at your leisure exploring the surrounding area. Return to the lodge in the evening to enjoy a delicious dinner.

We had a wonderful experience with your company. The transport, tour guides, hotels and trains were wonderful. Diana was a great guide for us on the first day. Our Machu Picchu guide was great as well. I would definitely recommend them again. Your team did a wonderful job in all areas.
