Charity Challenge - Machu Pitchu
THIS CHALLENGE HAS BEEN CANCELLED FOR 2017 BY THE CHARITY CHALLENGE COMPANY. OTHER SIMILAR COMPANIES MAY BE RUNNING SIMILAR TRIPS.
- Explore the Inca capital of Cusco
- Hike in the Peruvian Andes
- Alternative, uncrowded route in the Lares Valley
- Reach the lost city of Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate
- Optional Lake Titicaca or Jungle extensions
Our first taste of the Inca world will be in and around Cusco, the ancient Inca capital. After acclimatising to the high altitude, we will head towards the remote and rarely visited Lares Valley. This great alternative to the busy Inca Trail is well off the beaten track and offers trekkers a unique view of the diverse surroundings and traditional Peruvian cultures. The region is also home to the Baños Del Inca, probably the best hot springs in southern Peru. Wander through the clouds to discover the lost city of Machu Picchu. Situated above the Sacred Valley at 2,430m, this ancient Inca city was abandoned during the Spanish Conquest. The ruins have since been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and new wonder of the world.
