hike the Salkantay Trail to Machu Picchu

Salkantay is the most popular alternative to the Inca Trail.

Here’s a sample itinerary:

Day 1 Soraypampa – Huayracmachay

Day 2 Huayracmachay – La Playa

Day 3 La Playa – Aguas Calientes

Day 4 Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu – Cusco

Salkantay is great. But not perfect.

Note that the hike ends at the town of Aguas Calientes, not Machu Picchu. You enter the ruins the same way as those who take the train.
