Salkantay Trek Reviews


“Best Trek in Peru… Salkantay trek is the number one !!!”
I went trekking with 3 friends to Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu last June. Renne was our guide throughout the five days adventure. By the end of the trip, Renne was like a brother to us.
Renne knew the Salkantay route and Machu Picchu regions like a true local. He was familiar with all the routes, dangers, landmarks, animals, lodges, and local cuisine. More importantly, he was FUN to be around. There’s nothing better than having a guide and excellent organization of travel agency whose can do everything for you.
If you want to explore Salkantay properly and come away with awesome memories to last a lifetime, “Sunrise Peru Trek” and Renne is your team

I participated in Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu Nov 2016. It was truly a journey of a lifetime. The trekking was very professional and well organized. There was a high level of focus on safety with an itinerary that minimized the risk of high altitude sickness. The group – with Miguel our Guide was an excellent leader – was competent, very friendly and helpful. The kitchen staff produced tasty and hygienic prepared food even under difficult conditions. On the highest pass day, no less than three trekker guides allowed that the 8 clients could be split in three separate groups according to individual physical capacity. This contributed to the fact that the success rate was a 100 %. I had a wonderful trip to Machu Picchu with the most astonishing views of the beautiful surrounding mountains. I can highly recommend “Sunrise Peru Trek” as a trekking tour operator.

Thank you and all the team for our wonderful trip to Machu Picchu via Salkantay. It has been one of the most enjoyable and extraordinary trips I’ve ever experienced. From the moment we stepped out of the airport to the moment we left Cusco, Yam was such a considerate guide and the organization was faultless. There was nothing for us to feel concerned about; we were just free to walk and open our eyes and our hearts to Peru.
We wish “Sunrise Peru Trek” every success in the future.

I had a brilliant time with “Sunrise Peru Trek” on my first ever trekking holiday. I really appreciated being in a small group of two as it meant that our plans were easily adapted to suit more of what we wanted along the way. Carlos was a wonderful guide, who really looked after us especially when my fellow trekker fell ill, as well as being hugely entertaining, friendly, caring and passionate about the trek, Machu Picchu and life itself! Just when I thought nothing could top our day at Salkantay Trek.
Agustin, our porter, was amazing; I just wish I could have spoken Quechua to him! In comparison with another tour company (compared notes with another group post-trek), ours was much better organized and the service was far better and respectful with private transfers between Cusco and Mollepata. I definitely recommend “Sunrise Peru Trek” and would use them again.

This was my second time with “Sunrise Peru Trek” and like the last time I am very satisfied with my trek and with the team. Alfredo and the other guides made my Salkantay Trek to something I always will remember.
The whole teams were fantastic, so helpful and service minded. The food was just great, delicious! Ronny and his kitchen boys know how to cook. All of us managed to macho Picchu, and I am really happy about that. So thanks to you Mauro who organized this trek for me and thanks to the whole team.

Miguel was constantly motivating. The support he gave mentally to trekkers was excellent. Friendly face leading always seems positive. For my 1st trek it was awesome experience. The trek for me was perfect to experience everything which I desired. The food quality was excellent which really amazed me. Keep it up.


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.

The horses will carry your main bag up to a maximum weight of 7 kgs and cater for all the group needs, including assisting you if you need to go back down the valley. Unless specifically tenting, all accommodation is in tents which are top quality; except the last night will be in a 3-stars category hotel.

We run our Salkantay Trekss from a permanently staffed office in Cusco and our dedicated team provides an excellent service.

All of the guides have been employed for over ten years with us, and they have been trained to our high standards personally by Director and high altitude trekking leaders. They know how to deal with medical emergencies and speak good English. They are very attentive and after so many years have a good understanding of western needs.
