The Machu Picchu Mountain Lodges Trek is a physical, cultural, and spiritual journey along ancient footpaths through the high Andes en route to the legendary ruins of Machu Picchu. Trek to Machu Picchu along a spectacular route under towering snow-capped peaks dominated by Mt. Salkantay (20,574), the sacred Apu of local Quechua communities. Special to this women’s-only journey, trip leader Sheri Goodwin will provide a relaxing & peaceful energy healing session to help restore your emotional and physical balance after a strenuous day of trekking in the high Andes. Sheri will also guide you in specific warm-ups to prepare you for your daily trek and yoga stretching cool downs at the end of each day to prevent injuries and promote well-being.
Like Inca royalty you overnight in the comfort of well-appointed trekker's lodges with private rooms, exceptional international and Peruvian cuisine as well as Jacuzzi, lounge, and cozy fireplace. This less traveled route is a more spectacular high Andean trek than the popular Inca Trail and each group is limited to just 12 trekkers, ensuring a more intimate experience.
