Reinventing the Route to Machu Picchu: Mountain Lodges of Peru’s Salkantay Inca Trail



Experience the Ultimate Trek to Machu Picchu

Embark on a 7-day trek with veteran guide, Dalmiro Portillo, into the far reaches of Peru’s Vilcabamba mountains. Let him introduce you to the lesser-known ancient and remote footpath to the lost city of the Incas — the Salkantay route.

This short film highlights the journey, the ties that bind us, and the unique moments that define the human experience. Immerse yourself in the land of Dalmiro’s ancestors — from the turquoise waters of Lake Humantay to the cloud forests of the Santa Teresa River Valley — as he shares his deep knowledge and unfiltered enthusiasm for the Salkantay Trek. Experience the physical, spiritual, and intellectual challenges of both guide and traveler as key dynamics of the trek are revealed, set to a backdrop of awe-spiring beauty and pristine landscapes.
