The first stop will be in Mollepata to have breakfast, then we will continue our route until Challacancha for a short rest, from this point we will begin our walk towards Soraypampa. In this first opportunity, we will initiate a physical challenge that will help you to acclimatise to the altitude.
We will arrive at our igloo accommodations, located at the front of the majestic and snowy Salkantay and Humantay, where the reception staff will be waiting for you with an exquisite lunch and after there will be some free time for us.

Time really stands still when you think that of all the beautiful landscapes and the unique and unforgettable you are currently experiencing. After enjoying a view of the snowy mountains and feeling the force of nature we will pass through a great stoney scenery and we will descend until arriving at our lunch point in a place called Soyrococha. After lunch we will descend towards Soraypampa and in the distance, we will have a remote view of the great snow-covered forest of stones. The journey is definitely worth the efforts. Trust us!
