Your driver will pick you up from your hotel in Cusco around 5.00 am to take you to the starting point of the Salkantay trek.
On the way through you will pass through the village of Mollepata at an altitude of 9,843 feet (3000m) where the porters and the equipment for the trek will be waiting for you and where you will pay the s./10 fee to enter the Salkantay park.
After a 30-45 min stop with some time to have breakfast (not included) you will drive on to Challacancha at 12,150 feet (3700m) to start walking. The first part of the hike goes through an enchanting valley surrounded by snow-capped mountains such as the Humantay at 17,116 feet (5,217m) and the Salkantay towering at 20,551 feet (6264m). It takes about 3.5 hours on average to reach the camp in Soraypampa at 12,795 feet (3900m) where you will have lunch early in the afternoon.
Take a 2-hour digestive hike to the turquoise waters of the Humantay lake at 13,845 feet (4220m) with unrivalled views of the snow-capped Humantay peak.
Enjoy the peaceful views before walking back down to the camp.
Dinner and overnight in your glass igloo at the Sky Camp in Soraypampa.
