Trekking Machu Picchu has quickly become one of Peru’s biggest attractions for adventure travel. Whether you are looking to trek the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu or one of the alternative routes, such as the Salkantay Trek,  these 4-day mountain treks are a great way to explore the snow-capped Andes on your way to Machu Picchu.

Let one of our experienced travel advisors guide you in choosing the right Peru trek for your upcoming journey.

 

INKA TRAIL

The Inca Trail is by far the most famous trek in South America and is rated by many to be in the top 5 treks in the world. In just 26 miles (43km) it manages to combine beautiful mountain scenery, lush cloud-forest, subtropical jungle and, of course, a stunning mix of Inca paving stones, ruins and tunnels. The final destination of the trail just cannot be beaten: Machu Picchu, the mysterious “Lost City of the Incas”.

SALKANTAY TO MACHU PICCHU

The famous Salkantay Treks (or Salcantay Trek), named among the 25 best Treks in the World, by National Geographic Adventure Travel Magazine, is a trek open to everybody, with no limitation on spaces or permits (at least for now). Connecting the city of Mollepata, Cusco with Machu Picchu, the Salkantay Trek is an ancient and remote footpath located in the same region as the Inca Trail where massive snowcapped mountains collide with lush tropical rain forests.

CHOQUEQUIRAO TREK

Choquequirao is a ruined Inca city in south Peru, similar in structure and architecture to Machu Picchu. The ruins are buildings and terraces at levels above and below Sunch’u Pata, the truncated hill top. The hilltop was anciently leveled and ringed with stones to create a 30 by 50 m platform. The complex is 1800 hectares, of which 30–40% is excavated
