These are 4 luxury lodges along the Salcantay Route to Machu Picchu used in our Luxury Lodge Trek. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery without sacrificing creature comforts. The lodges offer warmth and comfort after the day's exertions in beautiful, remote locations. The lodges have been designed and built in accordance with traditional building techniques and local architecture and with respect for the environment.
Salcantay Lodge has 12 rooms, all with ensuite shower rooms, while the other 3 lodges - Wayra, Colpa and Lucma - each have 6 ensuite rooms. All lodges provide ample hot water. Shower gel, shampoo and conditioner are available. The lodges are heated to a comfortable 23 degrees centigrade. Each lodge has an outdoor jacuzzi, ideal for soothing tired limbs after the day's trekking. Meals, based on delicious local cuisine, including the innovative 'Andean Energetic Cuisine', created by the MLP's food and beverage director, and drinks are served to fit in with the trekking itinerary.
The lodges are located at strategic points along the route. Salcantay is a Soraypampa and the others at Huayraccmachay, Colpapampa and Lucmabamba, where guests spend one night each. All enjoy wonderful settings in the Cordillera Vicabamba, the Andean mountain range which includes Machu Picchu. All are well away from the camp sites of the Inca Trail, so guests can relish the spectacular scenery in peace and tranquility.
For guests' convenience, all lodges have a satellite 'phone for which cards can be bought. Internet access is also provided.
