In the track shown, there is a long straight segment. It corresponds to the car ride from the place you have lunch on day 3 to Santa Teresa, where you spend the night.
The trek is beautiful, and you hike through areas surrounded by snow-capped mountains, deep canyons and many different kinds of ecosystems.In the last day, you can either ride a car from Santa Teresa to Hidroelectrica, or walk along the road. From Hidroelectrica to Aguas Calientes you walk along the railroad tracks and the Urubamba river. During this last hike you can see Machu Picchu from below
I did this trek with Inka Peru Trek (http://www.salcantay.info/) and it was an excelent trek. YOu can also take a more expensive trek (with other companies) staying in the lodges along the way.
