Tour Details

The mountains of the Cordillera Vilcabamba rise to form a ragged chain between the regions’ two great rivers; the Urubamba and the Apurimac. Along the cordillera’s northern side, massive snow peaks collide with lush tropical rain forests.

Located northwest of Cusco, Nevado de Salkantay, the cordillera’s tallest peak, is at the eastern end of the chain and rises to 6271 meters above sea level. The name Salkantay means ‘Savage Mountain’ which may refer to the swirling clouds that rise up from the jungle lowlands and engulf the peak.
