Salkantay Trek

Salkantay Region

The Salkantay Region lies towards the west of the city of Cusco at an 80km of distance or three hours driving by car. In this serene region, there are abundant pastures for Llamas and Alpacas to graze during summer and the pristine turquoise lakes are breathtaking. The region of Salkantay can be visited after travelling to up to Soraypampa by car or trekking the Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu by adding few more days to your itinerary.


If Salkantay trek is the main destination, then the trek goes to Machu Picchu passing one of the most picturesque pass at 4,650masl. From where one can observe the “Vilcabamba” mountain range. From this point, the trail leads down towards the tropical zone before you reach to the lost city of the Incas – Machu Picchu.
The Salkantay region contains several trekking options and for different fitness; here one can choose how many days to trek and how to spend the night: in camping tents or in lodges. The Salkantay is a name of the snow mountain too located in one of the most important nation al park of Peru – Machu Picchu.


The legendary Salkantay region is the most diverse and popular trekking area in Peru. From the 9 or 5 day Salkantay Trek, which stretches into the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu to short three-day treks, there’s a trek suitable for everyone here.


Views of lush, fertile farmland and undisturbed natural forest, snow covered mountains, and encounters with a mixture of many ethnic communities, all add up to a diverse range of experiences that make this area one of the most satisfying trekking destinations in Peru.

Experince

Experience for Salkantay Trek

The Salkantay Trek is not a forced march and the pace is always slow, the days generally being shorter than a day hike at home.

We do recommend that you embark on a good fitness programme prior to your trip though, and one that builds up general stamina and specific leg muscle groups. There is nothing like hiking with a rucksack to train for Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu, so the best advice is to get out into the hills as often as you can. You are likely to carry about 4 kilos in your day sack so this is a good weight to work with.

If you are going to be using the gym then concentrate on step machines which work on the thigh and calf muscles, and try to build your heart rate up to 50% above resting rate. Any cardiovascular activity is good, but remembers that swimming will not train the correct muscle groups so it must be added to other exercises to be effective. Exercise groups like body pump, Pilates and aerobic are all excellent preparation for a trek like this, especially those which work on core strength, balance and stability.
