Prepare
It is also possible to do this trek alone if you have experience. You will have to spend at least one night at 3,900 m above sea level or above and you will need camping equipment good enough for freezing temperatures. It will also be important to have a good map and plenty of water. You will need to carry food for at least two and a half days. It is also a good idea to bring water purification pills or a lifewater straw if you are hiking on your own. There are many streams, but you will need to purify or boil the water first.
To properly prepare for this hike, it is important to be acclimatized. It is recommended to spend at least 2 days in Cusco before starting the hike. You may want to take altitude sickness pills just to be on the safe side. It is also necessary to be in shape since the trail ascends to the Salkantay Pass at 4,600m.[http://www.salkantaytrek.com.pe/ Salkantay Trek]
