Salkantay Trek Tips

Tips to trek salkantay:

  • Hydrate:

Is essential to hydrate with frequency during the trek and it’s something we shouldn’t forget. Bring water, it’s difficult to find water during the trek. Bring your own bottle of water and try to drink all the water you can.

  • Get acclimatized:

The highest point of the trek is at 4,600 – 4,800 meters (15,100 – 15,700ft.). Each person reacts in different ways but in general we feel the effects of elevation when we reach 10,000 – 11,000ft. The key to deal with altitude sickness is to spend 2 or 3 days before in Cusco so you get acclimatized.

  • Clothes.

The climate will be below the freezing point on the first night in the mountain. You should have winter clothes and a good sleeping bag of 0 degrees. Bring chemical foot warmers or boiled water to warm your feet at the bottom of the sleeping bag. It will get very hot during the day, especially at lower altitudes. Synthetic light clothing is essential. A good pair of hiking boots is advisable. You will carry a lot of weight uphill and then downhill for 3 days. You need shoes that are going to protect your feet.

  • Other supplies.

Sunglasses and sunscreen: You need a sunscreen of high altitude protection.
Insect repellent: At the end of the second day you arrive to a tropical climate and the insects are going to be really annoying.
