our multy day hike Salkantay Trek machupicchu 5/4n This alternative Inca Trek takes you through the Andes on a journey with spectacular scenery where you reach Salkantay , the highest peak of the Cordillera Vilcabamba, part of the Peruvian Andes. It is located in the Cusco Region, about 60 km (40 mi) west-northwest of the city of Cusco. “the most spectacular peak of the region with great vertical relief, particularly above the low valleys to the north, which are tributaries of the Amazon River”.The name Salkantay is from sallqa, a Quechua word meaning wild, uncivilized, savage, or invincible, and was recorded as early as 1583. The name is thus often translated as “Savage Mountain”. Directly to the north of Salkantay lies Machu Picchu, which is at the end of a ridge that extends down from this mountain. Viewed from Machu Picchu’s main sundial.

    IMPORTANT: Some of the reasons that our price may be higher than that of other agencies are the following:We ALWAYS book the maximum number of porters possible (according to Inca Trail regulations) so that our porters are not overloaded.Also, We are the only travel operator in Peru that supplies porters with proper tents, sleeping pads and adequate food for this type of activity.
    We always we take care our hosremans and horses during our alternative treks so tiping it will be the seim as for the porters

    Beware of this when booking they might be cheaper because of this!

    2 people (minimum group size) should have a maximum of 7 porters and 16 people (max group size) should have 22 porters.
    ** Tips for porters, cooks or guides are optional and are NOT included in our price. However our advice is that you tip our staff based on their performance, service and knowledge. Our guidelines for tipping our staff is the following:
    Each porter gets 100 Soles, each assistant cook 150 Soles, the Main Chef gets 300 Soles.make sure to tip more if your trip it is more than 5 days or if it is luxury treks
    Assistant Tour guides can be tipped collectively by the members of the group, we suggest a 5% of the total cost of the tour.
    Main guides are tipped on a one on one basis and based on their performance. Tour guides are professional people who spend a lot of time training in different other fields such archaelogy, history and WFA. We suggest people to consider tipping our guide a 10% to 15% of the value of your tour.
