8 Day Cusco and Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu
- Small group
- Transportation included
- Duration: 8 days
The first two days were absolutely incredible. The hikes were challenging and the weather certainly played into that challenge. Day 3 was beautiful going through the rainforest but there was not enough hiking. We hiked about 4 hrs that day and could have continued hiking from where they picked us up by van. The base camp that night was a concrete building with tents set up inside. .. Not what I had in mind for this trip. Not to mention the party that raged far into the night. Our entire group tried to sleep early and could not due to the heavy base. Day 4 most of us went to the optional zip line course, Vertical Zipline, which I highly recommend. Again though the hike to Aguas Calientes was much too short and could have been longer. Our tour was a mix of multiple companies and I think that made it difficult to get organized and give consistent information. Multiple people had issues come up but were resolved. Overall, it was a great experience though and I would recommend it.
