The Salkantay mountain or Salcantay mountain is the highest mountain of the Cordillera Vilcabamba in 6,271 m.a.s.l. and second highest of the region of Cusco. Located in the Cordillera Vilcabamba, in the district of Santa Teresa, province of La Convención, Department of Cusco in Peru. The Great Salkantay is one of the most difficult mountains to climb in the region. The Salkantay trek offers a more natural beauty, It passes high mountains and jungle, all in very desolate areas.

The Salkantay trek usually begins in the town of Mollepata or SORAYPAMPA in the Apurímac valley to the northwest of Cusco. You can arrive early in the morning by bus. Then visit the Umantay Mountain and the lagoon. The first night on this hike is cold, it is important that you are prepared for that. The camp is next to the snowy peak of Salkantay. On a clear night, you will see a sky full of stars. Having a good quality sleeping bag is essential if you want a good night's sleep.

This place is dominated by the turquoise waters of the waters that contrast with the white of the snow and the intense sky of the mountain sky. The snowy territory of the Salkantay gives us a unique landscape crowned by snowy peaks, where we feel very small. The trek continues and at each step you are surprised by a beautiful landscape, where nature is the protagonist.
