Salkantay Trek Challenge
The Salkantay Challenge Trek in the north of Machu Picchu in Peru is the most challenging trek. Reaching a height of 4,600 meters, the circuit traverses the incredible mountains and glaciers of the Salkantay region.
The trek takes between three days from Cusco to Machu Picchu. The Salkantay Challenge Trek is popular because it allows trekkers to pass through diverse terrain, from jungle to high alpine, and passes through a region dominated by Inca culture.
