With so many charity challenges jockeying for attention, choosing something a little unusual can bring rewards - and provide an unforgettable experience for the fundraiser. Hiking along the Inca Trail, or other less well-known routes in this part of the Andes, is one such adventure.
Many Machu Picchu charity treks cover a modest distance, but that does not mean they are easy! The terrain is extremely steep, you may be on the go for 10-12 hours each day, while the altitude (over 4,000m) will also take its toll.
The trail will take you through lush montane forests and sub-tropical jungles, high ridges with incredible mountain views, all punctuated by an amazing array of Inca ruins - culminating in Machu Picchu itself.
A Peru charity trek gives you a wide range of itineraries to choose from. Most average around ten days in length, and all are well worth the time. You need to prepare for a wide range of conditions while remembering to keep your load as light as possible. Fluids are a must to help battle altitude sickness, and never be afraid to ask for a break - this is seriously hard work!
