Both these treks boast close encounters with the Apu Salkantay mountain and visit the glacial Humantay Lake. During the 5 Day Trek you will hike up the mountain and cross its pass to continue along the trek onto Huayracmachay. The 7 Day route diverts off narrowly before Salkantay to instead cross Incachiriaska Pass (Frozen Inca Pass). This will descend to Wayllabamba, where you will eventually link up with the Inca trail.
It is a trek that consists of hiking, progressively getting more challenging. The heavy stoned pathways and iconic Incan steps make up this historic route. You will literally be following in the footsteps of an ancient civilization. This gives purpose and pride to the trek; however, this kind of route is demanding and at least a moderate level of fitness will be needed to undertake it.
Southern Peru Explorers also provides variations of The Classic Inca trail, so we suit everyone. We have options to; either shorten the trek to accommodate for time restrictions or fitness level; lengthen it to include other historical or natural sites; or to swap from camping to hotels to provide a more comfortable luxurious experience.
