Early in the morning we leave the city of the Cusco and passing by the localities of Izcuchaca and Limatambo we arrive at Mollepata (9am. approximately). We stop there for having a light breakfast in order to start  our long walk of the first day along with the supporting personnel. About 12m. we get ready to have the lunch in the denominated sector Silca Field. Later, after three hours of long walk we will arrive at our first camping: Soraypampa.

After a good breakfast we prepare ourselves to undertake the long and hardest stretch of the trip, leaving at 7am. We cross all the denominated  Salkantay Pampas site from where we`ll go towards the left side of the  snow-capped mountain Umantay which is next to the snowed one  Salkantay. About 12pm we will be in the highest point  (step Salkantay Umanata to 4500 a.s.l.). From this place we observe the snowed ones and glaciers of the Salkantay. Besides we`ll appreciate the stunning view of the falling snow ( avalancha). After one hour of having reduced the trek rythm, we have the lunch. Later we restart the trek until the place denominated Huayrac we`ll set up our second campsite.

 

DAY 3:
This day will be unforgettable because throughout the way we will see a great variety of flora and fauna. Setting off from Huayrac we`ll go through  the Arraniyuc community and getting along downwards to the forest eyebrow, where we`ll appreciate the thermal water phenomenon in a small valley. Now we are closer to follow the course of the river Santa Teresa, observing in this section diverse varieties of orchids and cataracts of great magnitude. Finally, we arrive at our camping in the place called Lluskamayu (5pm. approx.). Supper. We spend the night there.

This herb is still cultivated only in tropical zones like this. Soon we`ll be arriving at Sahuayaco where we`ll start dirt road trail. Reduction in the trekking rythm until the lunching point. After 3 hours of reduction we got to descry citadel of Machu Picchu from a little usual angle and we will stop by one hour.
