Is it for me?
If you are a very fit, experienced hiker who only has 4 days instead of 5 to trek in the lofty thin atmosphere of the Salkantay and Huamantay Apus and combine this trek with descending into the cloud forest to Machu Picchu then it is totally what you are looking for. Nominated as one of the 25 best Treks in the World. "National Geographic Adventure Travel Magazineas".
If you have 5 days then please book Salkantay & Machu-Picchu 5D/4N http://www.sastravelperu.com/english/program/342/salkantay-machu-picchu-5d4n/ to really be able to appreciate the experience over more time.
Only recommended for experienced Hikers and must spend 3 days acclimatising in Cusco before begining this hike. Even then it is physically demanding but well rewarded and worth it if you only have 4 days!
