There are many roads that lead to the Lost City, but only one takes us on an adventure into the cultural heartbeat of the Andean people. Our journey to Machu Picchu begins in Cusco, the original capital of the Inca civilization. Here we spend some time before our journey acclimating to the high altitude and immersing ourselves in the beauty of this red-roofed city.
Travel to four beautifully appointed lodges, where we rest comfortably each night feeling weary but exhilarated. Hike up the glacial moraine to the Salkantay pass. The journey takes us through the unforgettable glaciated peaks of the Cordillera Vilcabamba mountain range and over a 15,213’ pass, the highest point of our trip. We walk through coffee plantations, banana trees and avocado orchards until we reach the famed ruins. The final two days at Machu Picchu are spent taking in the grandeur and mystery of these iconic hilltop ruins.
