If you have in mind to make a Trek to Machu Picchu in Peru, it is very likely that the Inca Trail is your first choice, however, it is not the only option to get to this destination.

But do not get frustrated, the Salkantay Trek is always available.

Salkantay, is the name of one of the protective mountains of the Vilcanota mountain range it has a height of 6200 meters above sea level, considered the second highest peak in the Cusco region and one of the 5 highest peaks in Peru.
