Salkantay 5D vs Salkantay & Inca Trail 7D

Both boast close encounters with the Apu Salkantay mountain and visiting the glacial Humantay Lake. Over the 5 days you will hike up to the mountain and cross its pass to continue along the trek onto Huayracmachay. The 7 day route diverts off narrowly before Salkantay to instead cross Incachiriaska Pass (Frozen Inca Pass). This will descend to Wayllabamba where you will eventually link up with the Inca trail.
