Is it for me the Salkantay Trek?
Perfect for those who are seeking a more daring adventure while scaling higher altitudes and enduring longer distances! Your journey includes the challenge of conquering the famous Salkantay Pass (4,630 m / 15,190 ), an ascent that is not too strenuous or daunting in spite of its grand elevation.
How many days do I need to acclimate in Cusco before the Salkantay Trek?
Its recommended take a two or three day prior to embarking on your journey to acclimatize and adjust your body to the altitude of Cusco, Peru. This will help you avoid any potential issues with altitude sickness during your life-changing trek! Even if you have already been in another area of Peru at a high altitude, we still suggest having one day or two in Cusco for rest, recuperation from travels, and to take in the sights and sounds of this ancient city before setting off on your adventure.
Informative meeting for getting ready to go to Salkantay´s Trek
Held in our main office (or your hotel) at 5:00 pm the day before your tour begins, this meeting will last approximately 30-45 minutes and will provide you with helpful insight into the terrain, geography, and altitude you'll encounter. If you're unable to attend, please reach out to us via email, phone or in person.
Can I store my luggage during the trek in your office?
We offer a storage service at our main office in Cusco, making it easy and convenient for you to keep your belongings safe while you're out on the trail.
Pick up of guests
Our pick-up service can come to your hotel in the Historical Center of Cusco on the day of your trek. Your guide will coordinate the pickup time during your brief meeting, but please note that it could take between 30 and 45 minutes due to traffic. As Cusco is made up of many narrow cobbled streets and steep slopes, we highly recommend selecting accommodations with easy access for cars and luggage transportation. Start preparing now, adventure awaits!
About group tours
Our group tours give you the freedom to explore and go at your own pace, even if that means someone else is faster or slower than you. But keep in mind, your guide will consult with everyone involved to decide if any changes can be made to the route.
