To commence todays adventure we must arise early, as we delve into a drive through the Sacred Valley until we reach Mollepata village, where we will enjoy breakfast to warm up our bodies.
Then we will head towards Soraypampa, where is located the start point of the Salkantay Trek. As we begin to walk, the stunning views will immediately catch your eyes, if the day is clear and so the sky we will be able to witness the grandiosity of Salkantay and Humantay.
These snowcapped mountains are known as “Apus” which mean guardians mountains, in these case of the Salkantay Pass. The walk will take around an hour and a half until we reach the lake at a regular pace since this excursion has moderate to challenging parts, of course any effort will be forgotten as soon as you lay eyes on the turquoise waters contrasting the blue sky. Also, keep in mind that you may want to consider renting a house (for an extra cost) in case you do not feel like walking. Once we have arrived you will have some time at your lisure to capture this precios moments and scenary with your camera, we will also make an offering to the Apus for them to look after our hike and for the bravest ones to swim, only if the weather allows it.
