About this trip


J O I N  U S  I N  M A C H U   P I C C H U - P E R U !!!


Cross this magical place off your bucket list and join us for an incredible adventure to one the New 7 Wonders of the World - Machu Picchu!!


Our trip begins with two days exploring America's oldest living city, Cusco allowing. you to acclimate to the altitude before our trek begins. Spend time exploring the city's history, indulging in delicious local dishes, meander through shops. local markets and more. After a couple days exploring this beautiful city, we'll set out on our 5 day journey along the Salkantay Trek ending at magnificent Machu Picchu.


The Salkantay Trek is a fully supported 40 mile journey less traveled than it's counterpart the Inca Trail. Not only will you encounter rampant beauty along the way, but because it is more rugged and remote, the Salkantay Trek is significantly less populated than the Inca Trail. Day by day you will travel through changing ecosystems and scenery: from sweeping, magical landscapes and snowy mountains to a tropical jungle paradise. Along the way, you will see a wide variety of wildlife, medicinal plants, and flower variees. Witness, with your own eyes, a living, and ancient, culture in remote villages hardly ever visited by foreigners!


After an incredible journey through the Cordillera  as a hotel night in the end to relax before we depart!


Due to her high altude and steep slopes, you will need a reasonable level of fitness to complete the Salkantay Trek. But that should not be a barrier! The most important thing is to be well-acclimazed to the altude. The highest point you will reach on the trek is 1552 ft /4650 m. We will spend the recommended two days in Cusco to acclimate before the journey.


This is a women's only trip. You can find the full trip itinerary, terms of service, etc. here: https://womenwhoexplore.com/travel-guide/machu-picchu-via-the-salkantay-trek-in-peru-with-lisa-may-20-27-2023/
