Overview


Salkantay Inca trail, Salkantay Inca trail Machu Picchu is not same as the classic Inca trail hike, it is more. Many countries have mountain ranges with beautiful scenery and Peru itself is richly blessed in this respect with many other areas for hiking. However, in the Salkantay Inca trail, the scenery is only one of the elements responsible for the magic of the Salkantay to Inca trail. We join two famous treks in Peru in one trek. Can there be a walk anywhere in the world with such a combination of natural and archaeological beauty?
