Machu Picchu Mountain Lodges Trek
Wildland Adventures

Machu Picchu Mountain Lodges Trek

Our Mountain Lodges Trek to Machu Picchu is a physical, cultural and spiritual journey, taking you along ancient footpaths through the high Andes en route to the legendary ruins of Machu Picchu. Accompanied by expert Peruvian mountain guides and horse packing crew, you trek in style from lodge to lodge along a spectacular route in the Cordillera Vilcabamba under towering snow-capped peaks dominated by Mt. Salkantay (20,574), the sacred Apu of local Quechua communities we encounter along the way. Like Inca royalty, you overnight in the comfort of well-appointed trekker's lodges with private rooms, enjoy Peruvian cuisine, soak in Jacuzzis and relax by a cozy fire. This route is a more spectacular high Andean trek than the popular Inca Trail Trek, and the last day passes over a protected remnant of another Inca Trail and ancient Inca city hidden in the cloud forest near Machu Picchu. Small groups of no more than twelve trekkers ensure an intimate experience amidst stunning mountain scenery.
