The High Road to Machu Picchu As part of Back Track’s 2015 Inca Empire, we have chosen to trek to Machu Picchu along a quieter, more scenic and varied alternative to the busy Inca Trail. This exhilarating trek is in the shadow of Apu Salkantay (In the local Quecha language, this translates as ‘Savage Mountain’) which, at 6271m, is the highest peak in the Vilcabamba Range; part of the mighty Andes. The Salkantay Trek, also known as the ‘High Road to Machu Picchu’ crosses over a 4,600m pass and travels from near the snowline into a lush tropical rainforest. Along the way we visit the unexcavated Inca ruins of Llactapata from where we get our first views of the legendary ‘Lost City of the Incas’, Machu Picchu. National Geographic magazine rates Salkantay as one of the 25 best treks in the world. DAY 1: LIMA Tour commences in Lima. You will be met at the airport and transferred to the Hotel Antigua Miraflores, located in the more affluent coastal area of Lima which offers trendy cafes, restaurants and exciting nightlife. If you are not on the same flight as the tour leader, you will meet your travelling companions and the tour leader at the hotel. Head out tonight to a nearby restaurant for dinner.

On Taquile Island we stay overnight in the homes of the Islanders and enjoy their hospitality. (BLD)
