Being that this trek is mainly overspill for the oversubscribed Inca Trail, I was not expecting the trail to be so diverse, quiet, and beautiful. The environment changes so rapidly with altitude. For my tour group at least, the Salkantay trek was very challenging, but this made it much more enjoyable.
We did the 4 day hike including visiting machu picchu. It was a tought hike but got to the end after all. If you want you can take a horse at the hardest to the Salkantaypass. You walk trough so many different environments. The first day it was normal bush and highlands, second day you walk past snowy mountains in... 更多

This hike was tough, but definitely worth it if you are looking for a once in a lifetime adventure!
This was a fantastic trek. We did a 4D/3N with Alpaca Expeditions. We saw maybe two other tour groups the entire time, except (obviously) in Macchu Picchu/Aguas Calientes.

my family enjoyed some walkaround by this attraction and an easdy transport from/to made the difference... how nice to have a good excursion with so many details offered to us, its worth for the price and surely we will come again next year for another big attraction.
We just came back from this hike and would recommend it. The only possible downside, from a North American, is that people don't really respect the trails in that there is a sense that you just drop your trash, or at least the banana and other peels. I also saw water bottles and candy wrappers. It sort of takes away... 更多
