Mountain Lodges of Peru

Cusco & the Andes

Rating: Deluxe    

Mountain Lodges of Peru overview

These are 4 luxury lodges along the Salkantay 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. 

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.

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.

Mountain Lodges of Peru has a strong track record in sustainable tourism and works closely with local communities to help them benefit from tourism.


Open: The lodges are open from March 1st to December 31st.

Location:  The lodges are located at strategic points along the route. Salcantay is at Soraypampa and the others at Huayraccmachay, Colpapampa and Lucmabamba, where guests spend one night each. Lucma Lodge is close to coffee plantations - and guests are served the excellent local coffee.
