Photographer's Note

This Panoramic picture was taken the second day of the Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu. It took its name from the Mount Salkantay, an impressive mountain at the foot of which we trek.

This is Humantay Pass, at around 4600 m, the highest point of the trek. Mount Humantay is the mountain next to Mt Salkantay, and the pass is precisely between these two mountains.

It is the most challenging day of the trek, then the path goes down to the cloud forest, the landscape changes extremely quickly and the experience is totally different.
