I came because of my friend and was pleasantly surprised on how hard this trek actually was. We originally were going to try the Inca Trail , but it was sold out.
As a result, we booked hate more difficult Salkantay trek which turned out to be the better decision in our minds. Although, the trek was very physically demanding, it was very rewarding to finish the trek. We had the friendliest guides that actually helped some of our trek mates come down the mountain.
I would recommend this trip to all my friends with a warning that this is harder than what the websites say.
