The Inca Trail, though undoubtedly beautiful, is not the only way to reach Machu Picchu. For those who find the Inca Trail is fully booked (there are restrictions on the number of trekkers allowed) or who simply want to discover a new and lesser-trodden trail, there is a seriously attractive alternative: the Salkantay Trek. Though it is nowhere near as well-known as its famous counterpart (the Inca Trail), it is, unquestionably, just as magical. On this sample Peru private tour, you’ll get to travel around the serene Sacred Valley, where age-old ways of living and working with the land are still practiced; meet the inhabitants (both of the human and animal variety) and delve into the world of the Incas, before embarking on the Salkantay Trek and ultimately reaching what for many is a bucket-list destination: Machu Picchu.
