The trail starts in [[Mollepata]], a couple of hours away from [[Cuzco]] and ends in [[Santa_Teresa_(Peru)|Santa Teresa]] or [[Hidroelectrica]] giving access to [[Aguas Calientes]] for [[Machu Picchu]]. The trek is not as popular as the overbooked [[Inca Trail]] but many find it just as beautiful.
This trek (also sometimes called the Salcantay Trek), was named among the 25 best Treks in the World, by National Geographic Adventure Travel Magazine. The part around Mount Salkantay has some outstanding views and the descent later down to 1,000 m above sea level is quite gorgeous and not too steep.
