Salkantay Trail

Preserving the Sacred Salkantay Trail: A Call for Responsible Travel.

The Salkantay Trail is renowned as the most beautiful route, considered the sacred mountain by local Incas and residents. It has emerged as an alternative trek to the Inca Trail and has been recognized as one of the top 25 best routes to visit by National Geographic. Unfortunately, the trail faces exploitation by tourist operators and travelers, often without responsible practices.


The Salkantay Trek once boasted one of the most enchanting natural routes worldwide. Tour operators used to bring personal tents, dining tents, and toilet facilities, leaving the landscape untouched. Throughout the journey, one could witness pristine nature and wildlife. However, irresponsible companies have marred the trail over time by constructing igloos, hotels, and restaurants at former campsites solely for profit, thereby destroying the natural beauty of this trail. To preserve the sacred mountain, we strongly recommend practicing responsible travel.
