The Salkantay Trek is a photographer's paradise.

The landscape becomes more stark but no less beautiful along this section of the Salkantay Trail.

You'll really be hiking by this point in the Salkantay Trail!

No cars out here - things move via pack animal while on the Salkantay Trail.  Here, it's propane.  The horses are not roped together, so give them lots of room.

Money shot!  The ruins photographed from a common viewing point.  The taller peak in the background is Wayna Picchu (or Huayna Picchu), and it is possible to climb to the top for a different view of the ruins.  You need a special permit to do this - check it out before you go.
