about Wayra Lodge, Salkantay Trail

In a windswept valley, 3,900 metres below Humantay Mountain, Wayra Lodge is a stop over on the Salkantay Trail. You would stay just the one night here, which is just enough time to enjoy a hot tub soak at such a high altitude!

Wayra Lodge detail


A small lodge, providing comfortable accommodation on the Salkantay Route.


Wayra literally means ‘the place where the wind lives’, and this is exactly where the lodge is located, 3,900 metres below Humantay Mountain.

Accommodation & Facilities

Each of the 6 double rooms can sleep up to 4 guests at a time and have private bathrooms. The lodge is fully equipped and serviced, with a cosy reading room, fireplace, outdoor Jacuzzi and central heating.


Tasty Peruvian and International Cuisine.


You could check out the glacier lake, but it is a steep climb and it is not likely that you will have the time or the energy.

This is one of the lodges used on the Salkantay Route to Machu Picchu. This is a lodge based trek to one of the world’s most intriguing wonders, not just for those that don’t want to sleep in tents after a hard days trekking, but for those who want to really take it all in.

Child Policy

We do not recommend this lodge or the Salkantay Trail for children.
