The magnificent region of Salkantay is s/w of cusco where our adventure will take us. We will be walking on the original inca trail with great landscapes through to Machu Picchu. Salkantay’s association with the southern cross would not have gone unnoticed by the incas at Machu Picchu. You will notice and appreciate a glacier before you come across Salkantay, real openness and tranquility. A unique alternative route is to take the train from the hydro station and come around the back way into aguas-calientes.
