Annapurna and Tilicho Lake

What a fantastic trip! Really really great, what an adventure and what a fantastic team we had looking after us! There was never any doubt that we were save and more than well cared for. I was absolutely amazed at how easy and little fuss was made over my dietary requirements. They were reconfirmed at the beginning and that was the last I heard of it, it was all sorted. I have stayed in 5 star hotels in the past where ensuring my food was wheat and dairy free was a big hassle, yet your team managed to make it entirely easy and hassle free despite being in the back of beyond - I honestly can not praise them high enough.

Machu Picchu Treks with Permits


Best Inca Trail Alternatives

Did you miss out on an Inca Trail permit this year but still want to experience a breathtaking trek in South America to Machu Picchu? We have good news for you!  

With permits to walk the full Inca Trail completely sold out until mid October, there is an opportunity to take an alternative trail to the ruins of Machu Picchu. 

We have several treks with permits still available which include the last (and best) section of the Classic Inca Trail, starting at KM104 and walking through the Sun Gate into the mystical ancient ruins of Machu Picchu.

Many of these departures are already guaranteed which means you just need to pack your bags and lace up your hiking boots!
