Inca trail 2 day trek or 3 day huchuy qosqo trek? - short on time in Peru

Jump to last reply

A friend and I will be travelling to Peru in July. We were hoping to do the 4 day trek to Machu Picchu, however we are finding ourselves tight for time and are looking into alternate trek options. We are considering the 2 day Inca trail option (really a one day hike) or the 3 day Huchuy Qosqo trek (and visiting MP on the 3rd day). I'd appreciate any thoughts on which trek would be more worthwhile - I've read that even the short Inca Trail version has more spectacular views, and it would be nice to hike up to MP, but the pictures I've seen of the HQ trek look beautiful as well, and it seems to be less packed with tourists than the Inca trail would be.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.
