about Salkantay Lodge and Adventure Resort

Located at 12,795 feet, Salkantay Lodge & Adventure Resort takes its name from the sacred most sacred peak in Inca mythology, which stands tall at a spectacular 20,500 feet. Welcoming you with a hot tub and fantastic views of an enormous glacier-cloaked mountain, this luxurious weigh station is on a lesser known route to Machu Picchu.

Located between Humantay Peak and Salkantay Peak, it sits in Peru’s Soraypampa Valley, on an unspoiled landscape of towering peaks and alpine grasslands. 


This is a wonderful stopover if you are trekking the Salkantay Trail, however there are other beautiful kiting options here too.
