The Government of Peru continues to assess the effects from unseasonably heavy inland rains and associated flooding along the coastal areas of Peru. Rains are expected to continue for few more weeks. The most widespread, severe effects are in the northwest of the country, in the regions of Tumbes, Piura, Lambayeque, and La Libertad.
More concentrated incidents of flooding, mudslides, and inundated roads and bridges have occurred around Lima and the Ica Region. Some roads in the central highlands, especially in the regions of Ancash and Junin, have experienced travel delays and disruptions. Areas in the south of the country around Cusco and Arequipa have been affected less severely by the rains than areas farther north. Our Tours and treks in Cusco have not been affected at all, the trains are running as normal, tours visiting sites and we don´t have delays neither cancelations of our trips.
The popularity of the Inca Trail and the scarcity of available spots have led to the opening of several alternative hikes of varying length and difficulty.Check our Fixed date dapartures for group service on AVAILABILITY and BOOKING.

SALKANTAY & MACHUPICCHU 4 DAY / 3 NIGHT Trek -Private Service:
This trek takes you around Mount Salkantay, the second largest mountain in the Cusco region (6271m/20,568ft), On the first night, you'll camp within clear sight of the snow capped peak of Salkantay mountain. The second day will be the longest day of the tour, and while you work a bit harder to get there, the views at the top are even more rewarding. The walk to reach the famous Apacheta Pass at 4,600m/15,088ft) (the Inca Trail's 'Dead Woman’s Pass' is only 4,200m/13,776ft)) is not strenuous neither very steep, afterward it is mainly descent into a more tropical area passing Andenes and Chaullay on the far side of the mountain.
We`ll take the forty five minute train ride from the famous Hydro Electric Dam and then spend the rest of the 3th evening relaxing in the town and hotsprings of Aguas Calientes. Early in the morning you take the bus (or walk if desired) up to Machu Picchu for your guided tour, a well deserved reward but many say the trek is a prize in itself!
