Nevado Salcantay -Cusco- Peru
separador
SALCANTAY MOUNTAING




USEFULL DATE


The mountains of the Cordillera Vilcabamba rise to form a ragged chain between the regions' two great rivers; the Urubamba and the Apurimac. Along the cordillera's northern side, massive snow peaks collide with lush tropical rain forests. Located northwest of Cusco, Nevado de Salkantay, the cordillera's tallest peak, is at the eastern end of the chain and rises to 6271 meters above sea level.

The name Salkantay means 'Savage Mountain' which may refer to the swirling clouds that rise up from the jungle lowlands and engulf the peak. The Salkantay to Machu Picchu trek normally takes 7 days and has become popular with trekkers wanting to combine a quieter less trodden route with a visit to the Inca ruins of Machu Picchu. For the first 4 days you will be surrounded with magnificent scenery and rarely see other groups of trekkers. On the fifth day you join up with the Inca Trail at Wayllabamba and continue to Machu Picchu arriving early on day 7. The trek is only a little more difficult than the Inca Trail, and horses can be used for the first 4 days to carry food and equipment. Since horses are not allowed on the Inca Trail, you'll swap over to using human porters for this final section.
Only a few tour companies operate this trek and it's always best to reserve a space well in advance.


ATTRACTIVE

The Salkantay to Machu Picchu trek normally takes 5 days and has become popular with trekkers wanting to combine a quieter less trodden route with a visit to the Inca ruins of Machu Picchu. For the first 3 days you will be surrounded with magnificent scenery and rarely see other groups of trekkers. On the fouth day you join up with the Inca Trail at Wayllabamba and continue to Machu Picchu arriving evening on day 4. The trek is only a little more difficult than the Inca Trail, and horses can be used for the first 3 days to carry food and equipment. Since horses are not allowed on the Inca Trail, you'll swap over to using human porters for this final section. The Mountain range of Vilcabamba, where is the bulk of the Salcantay, is a beautiful and solitary zone.

Dominated by he himself Apu Salcantay it has numerous snowed of great elevation, like the Tucarhuay (5.910 m.s.n.m.), the Veronica (5.682 m.s.n.m.) and the Huacayhuilca (5.361 m.s.n.m.), among others.
All of them are visible from the zone of Puyupatamarca during the Way Inca to Machu Picchu. Geography is difficult and capricious in all the contour of this attractive mountain complex. The Salcantay is surrounded by deep valleys and gorges, which makes its interesting but simultaneously exhausting route.

The route
Two possibilities exist to make the return to the bulk:
The first circuit starts off from he himself km 88 of the railroad that goes to Machu Picchu and that Inca marks to the beginning of the Way. After walking by approximately four hours from the Urubamba river, a deflection in the small village is taken from Huayllabamba. The second possibility part of Mollepata , and soon both ways are united in opens between snowed the Salcantay and Humantay. Thence, there is an only way that happens through Colcapampa and arrives until Santa Teresa, near the archaeological rest of Machu Picchu.

The ascent
To be to 2.803 m.s.n.m of altitude, Mollepata allows to raise gradually towards the Salcantay. In the way auquenidos flocks are observed of. After overcoming a height passage it is possible to have an impressive piramidal Vista of the Salcantay, one of the prettier snowed ones of the Cusco. From he himself Mollepata two days are needed to lower to Huayllabamba and to join with the second day of the Way Inca.

How to go
The omnibus of Cusco to Mollepata starts off very early and happens through Limatambo . We suggested to him to visit the strength of Tarahuasi. From the highway it is possible to be observed the Apurimac river and part of its impressive tube. Remember that the zone is cold and is reached the 5.000 an altitude near m.s.n.m. Already in Mollepata Victor Delgado and his family, they offer services as guides and carriers. If it has glided to make the circuit Mollepata-Saint Teresa, is necessary to anticipate feeding for six days.
