This is a stunning trek to Machu Picchu. Once Inca Trail permits are sold out, this is the only option that allows you to walk to Machu Picchu.
The Salkantay trek is a real journey through changing ecosystems and landscapes. You cross the shoulder of Salkantay, beneath spectacular glaciers, before heading down into tropical coffee growing regions on the edge of the jungle. Along the way you get a fantastic view of Machu Picchu that few ever see, from the recently uncovered ruins of Llactapata.0
