Our charity challenge begins in the Inca Capital of Cusco – a fascinating city, full of colonial charm hidden deep in the Andes Mountains.

At an altitude of 3,300m, you’ll spend your first day acclimatising by taking a trek around the famous Inca sites surrounding Cusco – a great way to begin your trek for charity. Then you and your fellow trekkers are off as a team to conquer the one and only Inca Trail to Machu Picchu – the world’s most important archaeological find and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World!

 

The Inca Trail leads through the majestic Sun Gate, and then on to the fascinating ruins of Machu Picchu.

 

This classic Inca Trail encompasses three high mountain passes – the highest being 4,200m. The trek will be tough and will certainly test you, but upon witnessing the sight of Machu Picchu through the Sun Gate, mirrored with breath-taking views across the Andes, the effort will all be worth it.
