Now anyone can climb in the great land of the Incans

Cerro Soray combined with a trek to Machu Picchu is the perfect place to start your Peru adventure.

Cerro Soray is a perfect mountain for all levels. Whether a complete beginner looking to bag your first mountaineering experience, or an experienced climber hoping to get high while visiting Cusco, this is one for you.

The summit has spectacular views of all the surrounding mountains including the huge and sacred Nevado Salkantay. This area was home to the most important and advanced civilization in the Americas.

The peak can be combined with any of the treks to Machu Picchu - with one of the Salkantay treks definitely recommended. Alternatively, this climb is perfect as an acclimatization peak before attempting to climb Nevado Salkantay itself.

"The experience of Cerro Soray was sublime and made our trip to Machu Picchu all the more amazing."
