Hiking to Machu Picchu? Here's why you should choose the Salkantay Trek over the Inca Trail

Okay, before we make enemies (more than we already did with our article taking a massive sh*t on the Blue Lagoon), let me start off by saying that if you already did the Inca Trail or are thinking of doing the Inca Trail, we still think you're a total badass. From what we've heard and read, the Inca Trail is ridiculously challenging, unbelievably beautiful, and full of Inca history. What's not to love? 

For me, however, I went to South America without much of an itinerary. I also forgot my giant briefcase of bottomless cash, so the Salkantay Trek was a much more practical choice given my circumstances.
