SALKANTAY & INCA TRAIL 7 DAYS / 6 NIGHTS
An ancient and remote path, this path is the most complete of all of the routes, because it joins two fantastic trips into one: starting in the area around Salkantay mountain and then later enters into the Sacred Inca Trail and connects to the Lost City of the Incas, Machu Picchu. For those trekkers who are looking for something a little more extreme, and also a little more authentic.
1st DAY: Cusco- Soraypampa- Ichupata (+ / - 6 hours of trekking)
Departing from Cusco we will begin with a 3 Â½ hour ride to the trailhead in Challacancha. That is where we will meet our porters and begin the trek. Our first destination will be Soraypampa, where we will rest and have some lunch. In the afternoon, we will continue trekking until we reach Ichupata, our first campsite of the journey.
2ND DAY: Ichupata - Inca Chiriasca- Pampacahuana (+ / - 7 hours of trekking)
After breakfast, we will prepare to embark on the most difficult portion of the entire trek. Departing at about 7:00 am we'll go to the place known as Japanese Pampa, then hike to the right side of Salkantay until we reach the highest point of the trek: Salkantay Pass at 4,500 meters. From this amazing viewpoint, we will enjoy views of snow-capped peaks and glaciers in the area. We will descend to our campsite in Pampacahuana.
3rd DAY: Pampacahuana- Paucarcancha (+ / - 4 hours of trekking)
This day will be unforgettable because along the way we will see some Inca canals that begin in the town of Pampaacahuana. We will continue descending until we arrive to our next campsite; here we will have a guided tour of the beaufiful archaeological remains, Paucarcancha. Our dinner will come next and then a welcome rest beneath the stars.
Day 4: Paucarcancha- Guayllabamba- Llulluchapampa (+ / - 7 hours of trekking)
After breakfast we will depart from our campsite at 7:00 am, the trek starts across some tropical agricultural crops. It will be about a 4 hour hike to our next stop in Huayllabamba where we will meet up the Inca Trail and, continuing on, in Yuncachimpa, we will have lunch. We will follow along the Inca Trail for yet another 3 hours through the illustrious Ceja de Selva ("Edge of the Jungle"). Our campsite is in Llulluchapampa.
Day 5: Llulluchapampa- Paqaymayu- Chaquicocha (+ / - 7 hours of trekking)
Today we will be taking on the Warmi Wañusca pass. It will be a difficult climb, but the views from the top will make it worthwhile. On the other side of the pass we will descend to Paqaymayu to find a suitable place to enjoy lunch. In the afternoon we will appreciate important archaeological remains: Runkuracay, Sayacmarca and Concha Marca, before reaching our camp site in Chaquicocha.
Day 6: Chaquicocha- Phuyupatamarca- Wiñaywayna (+ / - 5 hours of trekking)
We will walk through the amazing Inca tunnel, continuing to the Inca site Phuyupatamarca, where we will have a short visit and a guided tour. After lunch we will walk through another Inca tunnel to finally reach Wiñaywayna, which will be our last campsite of the journey.
Day 7: Wiñaywayna- Machupicchu- Cusco (+ / - 4 hours of trekking)
After breakfast, we will make our way to Inti Punku (the "Sun Gate"), the entrance to the mystical, lost Incan city, Machupicchu. Our aim will be to arrive at the Sun Gate in time to catch its' famous sun rise (especially from May to August). Finally we will have in Machu Picchu a guided tour for about 2 hours. In the afternoon, you will take the train back to Cusco, arriving around 8:30 pm. Transfer to your hotel.
