Day Trip to Macchu Pitchu are a rip off. Inca Trail is super expensive. If you are a backpacker on a budget you should consider Salkantay trek to reach Macchu Pitchu.
The trek is demanding due to its duration but you have options (such as horses) to make it easier.
You will get to Machu Pitchu on the last through the main gates though not the Sun Gate like Inca Trail. However with a price factor inferior to 0.5 compared to INCA trail for the same duration and close to 1 compared to day trips, it is really a nice alternative. Plus you will get to pass close to the magnificient Salkantay summit though the Salkantay pass at 4600m !!
All Cuzco's agencies are proposing this trek!
