This one-day trek is the perfect alternative hike for those who were unable to book the Inca Trail. The Vilcanota area was the important mountain Inca. This adventure trail traverses a high Andean plateau, crossing passes as high as 5,214mt-15,850ft for an up-close view of the sacred Inca peak, Salkantay (6,280mt-20,598ft). The path is a beautiful. Along the way there are native Andean villages that time seems to have passed by.
