1.Salkantay Trek:free walking tour cusco

Located in the same region as the most popular Inca Trail, you will take an ancient path through the subtropical jungle and the high altitude mountains (including the namesake trekking of Salkantay, the highest peak in the region). Along the way, you will pass through an incredibly diverse wildlife and some lesser-known Inca ruins, finally arriving at the incomparable Machu Picchu after several days. Check out the Trek Salkantay for a list of quality tourism providers.

2. Choquequirao Trek:free walking tour cusco2

Most people who come to Peru will pay to visit the world-famous Inca ruins of MachuPicchu, but many people will not have time to visit the “little sister” of Machu Picchu called Choquequirao. In many ways, Choquequirao is very similar to its most famous relative, with beautiful stone buildings hidden in the Andes with the jungle at its feet. The main difference is that the trek to Choquequirao trek requires three to four days to arrive, so it is much less likely that you will meet other tourists, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the experience of discovering a forgotten Inca citadel. Check out the Choquequirao Hiking to find out more details on how to hike and find a guide.
