ADVENTURES IN PERU: TREK SALKANTAY TO MACHU PICCHU
This excursion is a great alternative for the Inca Trail trek, better suited for more adventurous explorers who are able to handle higher altitudes and longer distance.
On the Adventures in Peru program, during the Salkantay Trek, the ascension is not as strenuous or steep as the Inca Trail, and the path passes through stunning landscapes varying from subtropical areas to stunning peaks and glaciers.
You will be in the real Andes! Locals will greet you along the way and give you a glimpse into their rarely seen world.
