The mountains of the Cordillera Vilcabamba ascend to pattern a fragmented series between the districts two important rivers, the Urubamba and the Apurimac. Near the Cordilleras northern side large frosty summits bump in to abundant rain forests. Situated northwest of Cusco Nevado de Salkantay, the cordillera’s highest peak is at the east end of the range and ascends up to 6271 meters above sea level. The meaning of the name Salkantay is ‘Savage Mountain’ which could refer to the churning clouds that ascend from the jungle lowlands and absorb the summit.
The Choquequirao hike is an amazing trek that drops down into the Apurimac Canyon and then up again to the captivating ruins of Choquequirao. A difficult trek, though your efforts are paid off with the sensational vistas. The Choquequirao ruins sit atop of a ridge above Apurimac. Not as far reaching as Machu Picchu but likely more interesting and a lot more out-of-the-way. This is a one-of-a-kind path in the high Andes.
Trekking through the abundant, peaceful district of the cordillera Urubamba on one of the most popular alternative hikes we cross high mountain peaks and semi tropical valleys. We can appreciate beautiful lagoons, natural thermal springs and Inca ruins. We pass through quintessential native areas. The detachment of this region has meant the the locals have maintained their Andean traditions.
This is a less difficult trail and begins at kilometre 104 along the railroad of Cusco. The hike ascends to Wiñay Wayna where the trail connects with the final part of the classic Inca Trail and then moves down to Machu Picchu. This is an excellent alternative for tourists with less time or who are not up to the full four day trail. It also includes the fascinating ruins at Wiñay Wayna and participation in a section of the Classic Inca Trail. The route takes you through a lower altitude so acclimatisation beforehand is not necessary.

Since 2005 at the beginning of our operations, in Peruvian Sacred Adventure we care about positioning ourselves as a sustainable and responsible tourism agency in Cusco. We also have in mind the demanding need to have quality tourist services in the most important destination of Peru.
As a tour operator and travel agency, we specialize in nature tourism with special emphasis on adventure, community and ecological segment. Precisely, one of our main products is specialized walks like the Inca Trail.
In Peruvian Sacred Adventure, we have focused on quality service with the clear vision of becoming a leading company at the regional level in the operation of adventure tourism and hiking in the Andes of Peru.
We are a tourism agency in Cusco that has received important certifications. In order to obtain them, we have an integrated management system that incorporates the management of quality, environment, sustainability and corporate social responsibility.
First, we obtained the certification and recognition of the Regional Tourism Quality and Sustainability Program promoted by DIRCETUR CUSCO and OGD CUSCO (2017). For this, we implemented the integrated management system based on the guidelines of ISO 9001 Quality Management and ISO 14001 Environmental Management; being audited by AENOR (a Spanish certifying entity).
This year we have been recognized with the international certification of TourCert for good practices in corporate social responsibility and sustainability. This german association has a certification system aimed at managing aspects of Corporate Social Responsibility (RSE) through a comprehensive vision.
The TourCert system allowed us to carry out an in-depth analysis of all aspects of sustainability, carrying out continuous improvements, monitoring them by complying with international criteria based in ISO quality management standards, EMAS environmental management and in the ISO guide for social responsibility (ISO 2600).
The system developed especially for the tourism sector is accredited by the World Council of Sustainable Tourism. This position leaves us as one of the few tourist agencies certified in tourism quality, sustainability and corporate social responsibility that you can find in Cusco.
For this reason, we will participate in the ITB 2018 tourism fair because we consider that we meet the quality standards that the international traveler market demands today. Because of this, the companies that work with us can trust that their clients will receive a service that will exceed their expectations.
