AFCA is teaming up with Steep Adventures to provide you with a phenomenal trekking experience in Peru via the Salkanta Trail. Not as busy as the Inca Trail, with an average of 50 hikers per day, but the scenery is unbeatable! It is simply breathtaking. This 46 mile (74km) hike manages to combine beautiful mountain scenery, lush cloud-forest, subtropical jungle and sights of chinchillas, spectacled bears, and deer. You will have a 360 degree view of the three peaks—Salkantay, Humantay and Pumasillo, followed by a hike to the cloud forest and enjoying the change in scenery with various flowers and native plants.
The final destination, Machu Picchu, the mysterious “Lost City of the Incas”, is reached after a short bus ride from Aguas Calientes, allowing us to view the sunrise over the ruins.
