Salcantay Loop - Hiking and Trekking

Located in the department of Cusco, Mount Salkantay (6,271 meters above sea level) marks the culmination of a trekking circuit that combines majestic landscapes with the attraction of the world's most famous pre-Hispanic site: Machu Picchu and the Inca Trail.

Mount Salcantay

The trail crosses through a high mountain pass between Mount Salkantay and Humantay (5,917 masl) before heading along the Acobamba River Canyon down to the archaeological site.

The trail grant hikers extraordinary views of most of Cusco's most beautiful mountains: Mount Wayanay (5,464 masl), Palcay (5,229 masl) and Wakay Willka or Verónica (5,750 masl), which soar above one side of the Urubamba River Valley.

Rainy during the summer months (December-March). Sunny from May to September. Maximum temperatures reach 27° C, while minimum temperatures rarely drop below 11° C.

Like the Inca Trail, the route starts out at Km 88 of the railway. Organized groups set out from the town of Chilca at Km 76 of the same line.

Hikers will need to take along drinking water and food, in addition to camping equipment.
