Day 1: CUSCO – SORAYPAMPA – WAYRACMACHAY – LOS ANDENES

Stop At: Cusco Region, Cusco Region
Early morning pick up from your hotel and transfer by private bus to breakfast at Mollepata (2700m). After another short bus ride, we arrive at Soraypampa (trailhead) (3,800mt). We start a gentle ascent at the head of the valley, and then the trail goes steep uphill and comes to a series of zigzags. All around, you will enjoy a breathtaking view of Salkantay (6,271mt) (guardian spirit of the Jungle). Reaching the highest pass (4,630m), you will get an outstanding scenic and beautiful view of the sacred mountains in the Peruvian Andes, Humantay and Salkantay, that will compensate the great effort in reaching the top which is marked by several piles of stones spread out that grow daily as each traveler adds his pebble to thank the Apus (mountain spirits) for a safe trip and good luck. From this point, we start descending towards a tropical climate and into the so-called cloud forest. Along the route, we can observe the remains of an ancient Inca path, which is approximately 6 meters wide. A long though easy descent brings us late afternoon to our first campsite at Andenes (3,400m/11150ft).
