Salkantay Pass

Going through the Vilcabamba Mountain Range, the 37-mile Salkantay climb isn’t Everest or Annapurna yet slope moving through harsh climate and landscape is everything except ensured—even in the so‑called dry season.

The Salkantay Route crosses the Abra Salkantay Pass at 4630 meters or 15190 feet above ocean level, going down into the cloud timberland, rising to the Inca remains of Llactapata for an extraordinary perspective on Machu Picchu lastly unwinding at the natural aquifers of Cocalmayo before making a beeline for Machu Picchu Pueblo.
