The Salkantay trek offers you the chance to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Andes and marvel at the second-highest peak in the region.
Trekking Salkantay is an incredible journey through constantly changing scenery which ends at Machu Picchu.
Words from the group
"We are from Minneapolis MN, US. We came late to hiking and did not find the love of mountains until our late 30s and early 40s. Our first hike was an attempt at day-hiking Mount Whitney from Portal to summit and back (22mi). We made it to trail crest and saw clouds forming and turned back. Of course we got back down the 100 switchbacks and the weather cleared. We have regretted that decision since, and swore never to listen to trail gossip again.
Since then we were hooked, and have backpacked multiple trips of at least five days on the Colorado Trail, John Muir Trail, Maroon Bells, and Wind River Range (Cirque du Towers.)
We are used to taking everything we need on our backs. Slack-packing will be a new experience. Going to feel a bit like glamping, but for Salkantay, we'll take it.
Our son joined us on our first Mount Whitney attempt 7 years ago, and recently he and his fiance joined us on our 6 day foray in the Wind River Range in Wyoming. It was her first trip into the back country with full pack. She was a trooper, multiple 1500ft climbs up and over passes with some brutal weather (60-70mph wind gusts and hail) and loved it. :)
While we have some experience, we are very well aware of type 2 vs type 3 fun. We have both been in the suck of type 3 and love to elevate it back to 2 because we see the slump and cheer each other on. Embrace the challenge."
