Trip Itinerary

The Salkantay Trekking on the first  day  start at Challacancha which is almost 3 hours walking to  Soraypampa where we will sleep in Domes  which have  great confort, Hot Showers and toilets from here we will go to visit the Huamntay lake which next to the salkantay trekking mountain is an amazin lake full of turquoise color,  on the second days the walk goes steeply uphill for half an hour, then comes to a series of zigzags (Siete Culebras is the local name of this strech). At the top of the seventh switchback the terrain levels out under Salkantay´s lateral moraine, and drops gently down to
the small laguna Soirococha. The pass you see above is, alas, a false one; the main pass is a little further on, but the view of Salkantay trekking looming above you more than compensates for the effort. The real pass at 4,750m is reached after 3-4 hours from the moraine, and is marked by a pile of stones , “well know as Apacheta by th locals”, which grows daily as each traveller adds his pebble to thank the APUS for a safe trip during the Salkantay Trekking.

.Then the trail descends to the left –hand side of the valley, becoming indistinct in swampy areas. And then comes a place named Huayrajmachay “eye of the wind”, from here we will have a great chance to see the beautiful Pyramid-shape of Humantay behind as you drop below the tree line, know as LA CEJA DE SELVA (“Eyebrown of the Jungle”), and walk through groves of bamboo with many orchids and other flowers and lots of hummingbirds, spectacular waterfalls, a small hot spring at Collpapampa the right place to lock out for the parakeets that abound in this area as well.and the we go to to camp at a coffee plantation at Lucmabamba so we will learn about the proccess of the coffee from here we can take a local transport to go to The Santa Tersa Natural Hot Spring  where we will enjoy the hot springs which is 45 minutes from this town .and  on the 4th day we will walk through Llactapa Original Inca Trail so from the top we  will see machupichu and waynapichu mountains and then the last day will see finally the inkan city of machupicchu.
