Salkantay trek 4 days is a short version of the entire trail that takes you to Machu Picchu if you do not have enough time to do the five days version this option is perfect for you because you will enjoy the best part of the Salkantay trek. The first three days id the same that 5-day trek. All the group on the 3er day arrive in Santa Teresa camp around 13:00 pm for lunch, people you have four days trek after lunch will continue by car to hydroelectric for 45 more minutes, then you hike 3 hours along the train tracks to Aguas Calientes. Once you arrive at the town, we take you to the accommodation, and at the dinner, you will join another group who started the trek a day before then you, for supper and the tour on the next day in Machu Picchu. Sometimes we have enough people to make groups of 4 days people only. In this case, you will travel only with people and guides who are doing just the four days program. This option is excellent for those adventurers who want to do the trek of Salcantay and Machu Picchu in 4 days. You will enjoy the mountains, lagoons, glaciers jungle are and much more the only difference that there is between the program of 5 days is that you do not have time to do the thermal baths of Santa Teresa and there is no option to do the Llactapata the hike to the Inca ruins to see Machu Picchu a day before.
