We will begin our journey in the city of Cusco at 04:30 am, for which the CONDE TRAVEL Agency will pick us up at our hotel with a respective guide and thus begin our journey full of surprises and pleasant memories.

Cusco is a city in the Peruvian Andes that was the capital of the Inca Empire and is known for its archaeological remains and Spanish colonial architecture.
The city of Cusco is located at 3,399 meters above sea level. In 1933 the city of Cusco was declared Archaeological Capital of South América, in 1978 Cultural Heritage of the World, and in 1993 Common Heritage of Humanity.
The Cusco of today is a diverse world of contrasts between modern and traditional, between urban and rural, in the Cusco of today we will find a mixture of cultures, traditions and customs which merged throughout its history giving way to what we call SINCRETISMO

Salkantay, 6264 meters high, is the most important snow-capped mountain in the Vilcabamba range and occupies the southern position of the Aobamba valley basin. The Sisaypampa, Orcospampa and Paccha Grande streams rise from its slopes.

We will arrive around 08:00 am to the small terminal of Soraypampa, here begins our hike, at this stop we can buy water and take some pictures as we can take advantage of the beautiful view, although sometimes the weather gets unpredictable but that is the least of it since our goal is to reach the APU SALLKANTAY.

One tradition stands out in the history of the Humantay Lagoon: travelers leave a small offering called ‘Apacheta’ at the edge of the lake for Pachamama (the Inca mother earth). If you wish to join the ritual of making an offering while visiting the lagoon, you must first select the rock you will leave as an offering. Thank Pachamama for your safe arrival at the lagoon, and ask her to continue accompanying you on your expedition before placing the stone on top of another one.

When the Incas undertook military campaigns, especially if these were guided by the Sapa Inca himself, they used to take with them offerings to the mountain, to whose support they attributed many of their victories and in their long and difficult journeys in the northern confines of the Empire, Sinchi Roca and his successors until Wiracocha paid honors by dominating the mountain territory for the preparation of their people for any confrontation that might occur and they would receive favorable responses”.

With this little information we want to invite you to venture into this incredible hike and connect with nature and have an encounter with yourself in the APU SALLKANTAY, so, what are you waiting for and contact us !!!!!
