Inca Trail Charity Challenge
This Challenge is a trek along the spectacular Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. The Inca Trail trek has been described as probably the most spectacular short trek in the world, a chance to trek along a granite path built more than 500 years ago. Importantly we spend ample time in Cusco and the Sacred Valley whilst acclimatising to the altitude before heading to the trail. During the walk we experience a complete range of environs. We ascend the jungle trails and cloud forest to appreciate the panorama of Andean peaks that would have inspired the Inca people as we make our way to Machu Picchu. Words cannot describe the exhilaration of the first sighting of these enigmatic ruins. The route and campsites we choose are special because we manage to avoid the most crowded campsites on this ever popular trail. We also spend time in the remarkable city of Cusco, formerly capital of the vast Inca Empire, plus visits to the Sacred Valley of the Incas and its unique traditional markets.
This Inca Trail Charity Challenge has been designed for a minimum of 10 people. If you wish to join an Inca Trail as an Open Challenge fundraiser contact our office for more details.
During your Challenge you will be accompanied by expert bilingual local guides who have worked with us for at least 10 years and in many cases much more. They are dedicated to providing you with the very best travel experience while ensuring that our operations comply with all the rules for responsible and sustainable tourism. We also make sure that you are safe and comfortable. Unlike many companies that use local public vehicles we use private vehicles with drivers we know and trust hence enhancing your well-being and comfort. We hope you will join us for a life changing experience!
