Salkantay is really exceptional, located less than fifty miles northwest of the city of Cuzco in south central Peru.
The Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu in 5 days is the number one alternative to the Inca Trail and the classic one, with high snow-capped mountains, lowland jungle and a visit to the Inca Jungle. This trek offers a perfect mix of trekking, culture and nature.
The 2 Day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is great for people without time to hike the full Inca Trail. Covering a distance of just 12 km, the 2 Day Inca Trail is challenging which makes it the perfect Inca Trail vacation for families and those on a tight schedule.
