Trekking: 5 days and 4 nights in the Hidden Valleys of Mt. Salkantay
A new alternative for trekking alongside Salkantay Mountain that takes you off the beaten path. This trek has been developed by Explorandes with the aim of offering our travellers the option of staying away from the crowds while trekking in Cusco and enjoying a true connection with the Andes.
As you may know, Cusco has become a very popular destination for trekking thanks to the Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu. The Inca Trail trek has limited permits and, because of its popularity, a lot of people can´t get the necessary permits to do the trek and they then look for other famous alternatives such as the Salkantay trek or the trek to Choqueqirao. These two treks do not have permit regulations as the Inca Trail does so most of the time, especially during the high season, they are overcrowded and the impacts of the high number of trekkers on the trails is visible.
For this reason we have developed a new alternative for trekking alongside Salkantay Mountain that takes you off the beaten path. We want to offer our travellers the option of staying away from the crowds while trekking in Cusco and enjoying a true connection with the Andes. During the trek you will see amazing landscapes with beautiful lakes, snow-capped mountains and some of the typical Andean flora and fauna such as llamas, vicunas, orchids, etc.
