The Salkantay Trek is a 4 to 6 days trek that takes you across the Andes Mountains to the hidden Inca City of Machu Picchu. This trek will take you across a range of landscapes from dry, to rocky, to lush green jungles, and across a range of altitudes, from 1,900 meters to 4,650 meters (the highest point of the trek).
Since the 1980s then the number of tourists and travellers visiting the site have risen by 700%, with a peak at 610,000 people between January and July of 2018.
In 2016 I was in my final year of my Bachelors degree in the UK, and I took part of a charity challenge organised by Choose a Challenge. The goal : Raise a minimum of £3000 and trek the Salkantay Trek in Peru to the famous archeological wonder, the Machu Picchu for Make A Wish Foundation UK. Read the story here !
