The Inca Trail Trek
12th-21st October 2019
Trek the iconic Inca Trail•Discover the lost city of Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate•Hike through the Peruvian Andes Mountain range•Learn the rich ancient history of Cusco•Explore Inca’s cosmopolitan capital, Cusco
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, we spend our first day acclimatising by taking a trek around the famous Inca sites surrounding Cusco – a great way to begin our trek for charity.
Then we’re 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! There are literally thousands of Inca Trails within Peru and many other charity events sound similar, but there’s only one Inca Trail that leads through the majestic Sun Gate, and then onto the fascinating ruins of Machu Picchu. Exceptional support and companionship await – from our porters and chefs through the medics and guides, we’ll be in great hands to assist us in reaching our goal!
This classic Inca Trail encompasses 3 high mountain passes – the highest being 4,200m. The trek will be tough and will certainly test us, but upon witnessing the sight of Machu Picchu through the Sun Gate mirrored with breathtaking views across the Andes our efforts are more than worthwhile.
