Meaning Wild Mountain, Salkantay Mountain rises more than 20,000 feet above sea level. With its snow-capped peak and wild landscapes, it is easy to discover why it received its current moniker. A phenomenal trekking experience, and one of the best ways to reach Machu Picchu, Salkantay offers a journey back in time as you walk through untouched and spectacular scenery taking in the ruins of the mighty Inca who once dominated this region.
