Exclusive & Private Campsites
Salkantay Trekking has the most incredible exclusive campsites for hikers to relax after a long day of trekking. On the Salkantay route, you’ll have the opportunity to spend a night under the stars in our Sky Camp located in Soraypampa, our Andean Huts in Chaullay, our exclusive Mountain Sky View in Collpapampa, and our Jungle Domes around the nature.
On other routes, you’ll find that we have private campsites away from other groups and, in some cases, accommodation in the homes of local families for a truly unique experience.
You won't have to worry about being surrounded by other large groups, so you can enjoy the peace of our exclusive campsites.
Under the deep blue sky
This amazing project was inaugurated on May 1, 2016, with the aim of diversifying and breaking the routine of our passengers during their voyages. Whether you are looking for an incredible adventure or a romantic getaway, our Sky Camp is the ideal destination!
Located in Soraypampa, at 3,900 meters above sea level, our authentic camp is made up of glass domes that are located in front of the Apus or sacred mountains: Humantay and Salkantay, and allows the perfect union of heaven and earth. You will be able to recharge your energy in front of the protective gods and rest with an exceptional 360° view of the Andean sky.
In addition, you´ll have access to the toilets that are made for groups of travelers. Another highlight is the dining room, a large space where you´ll enjoy the delicious meals prepared by our professional chefs. The design of the dining room is also in the form of a glass dome, and you´ll be able to contemplate the snow-capped mountains while tasting your meals prepared with organic ingredients.
Each of our chefs is perfectly trained not only to make an exquisite appetizer but also to provide a balanced and equilibrated diet, ideal to have energy during the route.
Also, the dining room has a fireplace to help you warm up. So you don't have to worry too much about the cold. You'll love socializing here, meeting new hiking friends, and sharing stories from around the world.
In 2016 we started with 10 accommodations. Then, in 2017, we increased by 8 more. And, due to demand, in 2018, we built more igloos, bringing our total to 32 domes that can accommodate 64 people and 1 dining room, carrying the same design.
Don't forget to take amazing pictures of the sunrise, sunset, and the magical night you´ll have in the company of the stars.

Authentic Andean Campsites
We have always sought harmony between the environment and the context of the Andean world.
The Andean Huts are adapted to the natural environment without generating audiovisual impact. These huts are located in Chaullay (2,900 m) and are built from local resources: Peruvian grass (ichu) and wooden poles, which guarantee protection from cold nights and a pleasant rest.
You´ll feel very relieved to relax in complete harmony with the environment at the end of a long and exhausting day of trekking. In addition, you´ll perceive the power of Mother Nature in this peaceful place. Undoubtedly, you´ll disconnect from the world to interact with the environment and recharge your energy.
The cabins have long doors so you can enter as comfortably as possible and have a deep sleep on the high-quality mattresses. Each hut is located one meter above the ground to prevent humidity from entering.
This camp has toilets for the group and showers with hot water, if you wish to rent. The extra expenses are destined for the local communities. Also, you´ll find a dining room equipped to enjoy the meals prepared by our chefs around the mountains and rivers.
Salkantay Trekking was founded with the criteria of practicing responsible and sustainable tourism; therefore, we carry that principle in the following motto: “We believe that responsible tourism is the best way for the world.”

The spirit of nature
Enjoy your arrival in the jungle of Cusco with the cozy Jungle Domes. These domes are designed to mimic nature.
The Jungle Domes are a project that has grown since its inception, following sustainable principles to protect the planet. We are fully committed to the ecological care of the area; therefore, these charming and green structures are built in harmony with the natural environment.
It is located in the Lucmabamba cloud forest (2,000 m / 6,560 ft), where you can appreciate the wonderful nature of Vilcabamba in great comfort and get in touch with the intimate landscape of the rainforest.
Every time you step out of your dome, you´ll find yourself in the midst of tropical trees and plants. Even from inside, you will be able to observe the forest, listen to the sounds of the natural environment, feel the breeze of the wind, and contemplate the stars. The conceptual design of this place invites you to see one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world through your door.
