A fundraising adventure of a lifetime trekking to the Lost City of the Incas – Machu Picchu. This is a challenging trek on steep trails climbing to 4,200m in fantastic and diverse mountainous country.
From high remote mountain trails to the first sight of Machu Picchu, the legendary Lost City of the Incas, this is a challenging trek on steep trails climbing to 4200m in fantastic and diverse mountainous country. There is plenty of time built in to acclimatise to the altitude - enjoy exploring ancient Cusco, capital of the Inca Empire, and the surrounding Sacred Valley. The trek then takes us through lush cloud forest, green valleys and high passes with breathtaking views of snow-capped Andean peaks, with time to stop and explore fascinating Inca temples and settlements along the way.
Although the trip will be tough, the sense of achievement will make it all worthwhile
