Hiking in Peru vs visiting the rainforest/jungle (Tambopata)?

Jump to last reply

We'll be in Peru for 10 days and have the choice of either:
1) Hiking for 4 days to Aguas Calientes (Salkantay Trek) - this is an alternative to hiking the Inca Trail since we cant get a permit.
2) Just taking the train to Machu Picchu instead of hiking and spend several days down in the rainforest (Tambopata) or Lake Titicaca instead
Can anyone any suggestions? We were leaning towards the hiking.
Any other suggestions for things 'not to be missed' in Peru?
