Alternative Tours to Machu Picchu

On the Salkantay Trek, we pass through an amazing progression of ecological zones, from sparsely vegetated alpine meadows flanking two spectacular 20,000′ glaciered peaks, down through subtropical forest into the Inca salkantay Trek . We arrive later to the “Lost City of the Incas¨, Machu Picchu.
This lovely and varied Salkantay Trek hike (about 50km) is the “soft option” from Soray since the pass is lower (though still a tough 4,750m (15,580ft) and then is mostly downhill through forested valleys, above deep ravines, ending at 1,500m.
