Gay Group Trip: Salkantay Trek To Machu Picchu

Group Trip Breakdown

Day 1 To 2: Lima
If you arrive early on day one you can go on a tour of Pachacamac ruins - for an additional charge.

We'll be going on a bike tour of Lima and discovering Peru's history at the Larco Herrara Museum. In the evening we'll dine at a top restaurant.
Day 3 To 4: Cusco
We'll take a short flight to Cusco, check into our hotel and acclimatise to the high altitude. The colonial city of Cusco has plenty to discover and its surrounding sacred valley.

Just outside the city we'll explore the Incan Sacsayhuaman fortress complex, and then return for dinner in the trendy San Blas area.
Day 5: Salkantay Trail
The Inca Empire ruled over Peru from around 1450 to 1530. Prior to the Incas, Peru was made up of many fragmented communities. The empire the Incas created was truly great. They built sophisticated roadways and created an administrative bureaucracy. As with so many empires, they must have thought that theirs would last forever.

The arrival of the Spanish would bring their short reign to an end. Spain's rapid conquest obliterated most of what the Incas had built. We'll be exploring the ruins, and trying to piece together their story from the wreckage of history.

We'll visit the Inca town of Limatambo, the village of Mollepata and the Tarawasi ruins. Tonight we'll camp in the shadow of a glacier at Soyrococha.
Day 6: High Mountain Pass
Today we'll see more glaciers as we ascend Salkantay Mountain Pass, seeing some chinchillas in their natural habitat on the way.
Day 7: Santa Teresa River Valley
Attention coffee lovers: we'll be trying some of the world's best coffee on our hike through Santa Teresa River Valley. We'll have a picnic and camp at Lucmabamba.
