Here are some points we would like to share with you why choose “Sunrise Peru Trek” as your travel partners in your adventure holiday trip to Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu.

Our medical and safety practices are second to none. All our trekking group leaders and guides have undertaken the Wilderness First Aid Medical Course and years of experience have taught them to deal with any adverse situations from diarrhea to Acute Mountain Sickness. We carry Portable Altitude Chamber / Gamow gab (hyperbolic bag) or Oxygen along with a comprehensive medical kit. We plan adventure trips where safety is not compromise.

01 Trekker: 1.5 Porter “Sunrise Peru Trek” is proud to announce that we are one of the few trekking companies implementing a ONE TREKKER: ONE OR TWO PORTERS strategy on our entire trekking above 4000 meter in the Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu. The personal porter is more like having your own personal helper next to you. He carries a much a lighter weight around15 Kilo only than any other porters you encounter on route.

Staff Welfare:

We are committed on the welfare of our staff from Trek Leaders / Guides, Cooks, Porters and horseman. We ensure good wages, salary, Provident fund, proper insurance to the equipment and warm clothing needed for porters. They are our kith and kin as well as the backbone of adventure industry in Peru.

Your choice has enabled us to contribute in our mission to provide better education to the many more deprived porters’ children through “Porter Children Education Fund” promoted by “Sunrise Peru Trek”.  We are also assisting in building up the schools and drinking water supply system on remote areas.

We are aware on the protection of fragile environments while organizing Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu. We motivate all of our guests to ‘take only photos leave only footprints’. We cook meals using gas. We do proper dispose of all the biodegradable rubbish and bring all non-biodegradable things like tin; batteries, plastic etc. back to Cusco for proper disposal.

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.

Support Team

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.
