Salkantay Trek 3 days is an exciting and less-traveled option for adventurers seeking a shorter route to Machu Picchu. With daily departures offered by SALKANTAY TREKKERS PERU, this trek is accessible and affordable for those with limited time or budget constraints.

Despite its shorter duration, the 3-Day Salkantay Trek offers a stunning journey through diverse landscapes, including glaciers, rivers, lagoons, and jungle valleys. You’ll reach the trek’s highest point, Abra Salkantay, at an elevation of 4,630 meters (15,226 feet), and witness the breathtaking beauty of the Peruvian Andes.

To make the trek more feasible within three days, SALKANTAY TREKKERS PERU ensures that you will join a group at the first camp, complete with experienced guides, cooks, and support staff. This arrangement allows you to enjoy the trek with a reasonable price and the support necessary for a successful journey.

The 3-Day Salkantay Trek begins and ends in Cusco, with some distances shortened by car to accommodate the tighter schedule. While the walking distance may be slightly longer than other Salkantay trek options, it remains manageable for well-prepared and adventurous trekkers.

Embarking on the 3-Day Salkantay Trek offers the opportunity to experience the best of the Salkantay trail while visiting the iconic Machu Picchu on the final day before returning to Cusco in the afternoon. This condensed itinerary makes it an excellent choice for travelers eager to explore the Andes’ stunning landscapes without committing to a longer trek.

The ticket to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu is included in the package price, which we purchase in your name. Typically, we include circuits 1, 2, or 3 for the guided tour at Machu Picchu. To secure a spot on these popular circuits, it is essential to book your tour at least three months in advance. If these circuits are unavailable, the alternatives would be circuits 4 or 5.

The main difference between the circuits is their access points to Machu Picchu. Circuits 1, 2, and 3 provide access from the upper part of the site, offering panoramic views and opportunities for classic photos of Machu Picchu. In contrast, circuits 4 and 5 grant access from the lower part, which does not offer the classic view of Machu Picchu.

It is important to note that no circuit covers the entire Inca citadel. However, all circuits include a guided tour lasting between 2 to 2.5 hours with an expert guide, ensuring a comprehensive and educational experience at Machu Picchu.

Your adventure begins with the awe-inspiring Humantay Lagoon on day one, followed by a restful night at the serene Quiswarniyoc private camp. The next day challenges you to reach the zenith of the trek, the majestic Salkantay Pass at 4,700 meters, a moment that marks the start of your descent to the welcoming Chawllay campsite. The third day is a journey of discovery through the captivating Santa Teresa Valley, rich with local agriculture, leading up to your arrival in Aguas Calientes by evening. This prepares you for the grand finale of your trek: the exploration of the iconic Machu Picchu on day four.

The Salkantay Trek 5 days is tailored for efficiency, differing from the 5-day version in its pace and focus. While the 5-day trek allows for leisurely pursuits like soaking in the hot springs and trekking to the Llactapata viewpoint of Machu Picchu, the 4-day variant optimizes your time. This approach omits certain activities to ensure a timely arrival at Machu Picchu, making it the ideal option for those with limited time who are eager to experience the natural beauty and cultural richness of the Salkantay trail and the majestic Machu Picchu.

The ticket to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu is included in the package price, which we purchase in your name. Typically, we include circuits 1, 2, or 3 for the guided tour at Machu Picchu. To secure a spot on these popular circuits, it is essential to book your tour at least three months in advance. If these circuits are unavailable, the alternatives would be circuits 4 or 5.

The main difference between the circuits is their access points to Machu Picchu. Circuits 1, 2, and 3 provide access from the upper part of the site, offering panoramic views and opportunities for classic photos of Machu Picchu. In contrast, circuits 4 and 5 grant access from the lower part, which does not offer the classic view of Machu Picchu.

It is important to note that no circuit covers the entire Inca citadel. However, all circuits include a guided tour lasting between 2 to 2.5 hours with an expert guide, ensuring a comprehensive and educational experience at Machu Picchu.

If you are booking at the last minute and the circuits to visit Machu Picchu are unavailable, your final option is to purchase tickets to reach the town of Aguas Calientes. For more details, please see the information provided in the link.

Amazing trek with the best guide I did the Inca trail to Machupicchu for 4 days and 3 nights, with Salkantay Trekkers Peru. Our organization was excellent I joined a group of 6 people. We had the briefing one night before our departure where our guide Jose gave us full information and some suggestions. The service was very good, with all the staff that we went from the first day between them it is worth mentioning the service of our Cheff and our porters who were the people who took our travel luggage. The whole group saw the desire to work as a team, and in a professional manner. Our Guide Jose very kind and attentive with all the group of tourists and the staff of the Agency. I had the best travel experience with this group and very organized, I congratulate the whole group for making me part of this unforgettable experience. I recommend this travel agency in Cusco, for those people who are interested in traveling to Machu Picchu.
