Salkantay to Machu Picchu in 4 or 5 days ?

Jump to last reply

we were planning incatrail for for this july , but Incatrail seams ful til 12 august ,,,
Than friend told us that they used Southamericaplanet travel agent in Cusco for a Salkantay. I was looking on internet and did found many agencys that offer the 5 days but not so many who do the 4 days Salkantay what can replace the 4 days incatrail. Southamericaplanet told me that they do the 4 days to avoid the tourist, because this trek is becomming popular, and that on the 5 days you have to walk along a road day 1 and day 4 on the 5 days tour you walk only 2 h, Thats why they reduce to 4 days, they drive further by car on day 1 and they do day 3 a longer day walking. Who have experiance in this trekking, what look very nice .
