Salcantay (Nevado Salcantay) or Salkantay (Nevado Salkantay), Sallqantay in Quechua is the highest peak of the Cordillera Vilcabamba, part of the Peruvian Andes. It is located in the Cusco Region, about 60 km (40 mi) west-northwest of the city of Cusco. It is the 38th highest peak in the Andes, and the twelfth highest in Peru. However, as a range highpoint in deeply incised terrain, it is the second most topographically prominent peak in the country, after Huascarán. – Wikipedia
We captured this photo during the Salkantay Pass, which was day 2 of our hike to Machu Picchu via the Salkantay Inca Trail. This trek provided us with the most incredible picture set we have ever taken, even with our cameras starting to fail us.
