To book Salkantay now or when in Cusco

Hi all,

Going to peru for 3 weeks and have missed out on the inca trail- Am so gutted but someone mentioned salkantay trek so am considering doing this but not sure what best option to take. Will be in Cusco arond end of May.

Whatever I do I definately want to include MP and climb Huayna Picchu.

Options:

1) Get to cusco and get Salkantay trek locally to include MP and HP tickets when there- I've read there are many companies around that will offer this- But not sure if by then it will be too late to get Huayna Picchu tickets just a few days in advance?

2) Get my MP and Huayna Picchu tickets in advance now (so I've confirmed that) then look for a seperate salkantay trek whilst in cusco that will allow me to use the MP/HP tickets i've already bought.

3) Just try and book through an agent online for the whole thing and fix the dates now. - The reason I am reluctant to do this is because i've read it costs more to book online than to do in whilst in cusco but more importantly it will fix my dates so will not allow any flexibility whilst in Peru.

Thanks in advance!

Lima, Peru

I sugest to book it in advance as for the trekking company might be easier to organize all logistics such as the train tickets or your entrance to MP and HP, You can definitely book when you arrive in Cusco too but it can not always run as good as you would want.

Basically huaynapicchu needs to be book in advance but don't do it on your own as it can always be purchased with the mp entrance together so better to rent a trekking company that includes all these stuff. if you book salakntay with company they will include all the tickets

Have a nice trek to MP

I'd agree - you pay more when you book in advance but the trekking companies are reputable and look after their staff properly.

Booking online will save you spending holiday time running around comparing agencies too.
