The glorious “Lost City” of Machu Picchu is one of the must-visits, and there isn’t an adventurous soul in the world that hasn’t heard of this ancient Inca capital, which was abandoned after the Spanish conquest. The wild orchids, the rainforests, Andean peaks that surpass 19,000 feet above sea level, (Salcantay (20,574′) and Huamantay (19,239′), and other visual treats make sure that you are never left craving for action. You would be hiking between 10,000 and 15,200 feet and the hike lasts for about 9 days.
The package is really interesting and it may not sound luxurious to you at the moment, but the money that you would spend on the trip could be a bomb, which makes it almost luxurious.
After 2 days at Cusco / Salcantay Lodge, you would leave to Huayrac Machay Lodge where you would check out the 15,200-foot Salcantay Pass. Later you would descend to the sub-tropical forests and walk through coffee plantations and discover wild orchids, and beautiful wilderness. You would finally end your trip at Machu Picchu where you would gaze at the eternal remains of a long lost city. The package costs from $3595 and above. All meals are included.
