Salkantay Inca Trail Trek to Machu Picchu
The Salkantay Inca Trail trek is longer, tougher trek which extends the Classic four day trail by three days. You walk through more remote parts of the Andes, passing ancient Inca stonework and ruins to altitudes over 5,000m. You join the Classic Inca Trail on the fifth day and continue along the famous route to Machu Picchu. This trip is designed for more experienced trekkers and well worth it if you want to escape the busy Classic Inca Trail Hike for a few days.
