Trek to Machu Picchu in Peru and raise money for your chosen charity in September or April-May 2015
Join our Ultimate Challenge journey to Machu Picchu and escape the crowds on the traditional Inca Trail. We trek along a quieter and more scenic traditional Inca Highway where along the way you can enjoy breathtaking scenery and observe the traditional Andean way of life.
The journey starts in the heart of the Urubamba Valley and progresses past beautiful snow-capped mountains and glacial peaks. At night you will stay in camps set up in the valleys of small, traditional mountain villages which remain little changed over time.
The trek will end with a momentous entry through the ‘Sun Gate’, signalling your arrival at the lost city of Machu Picchu. Peru’s most famous Inca ruins, nestled among surrounding green mountain-peaks, are considered to be one of the seven wonders of the world and it’s not hard to see why. The setting of these ancient ruins is nothing short of astounding, and arrival at the site makes for a truly unforgettable moment.
