Peru is one of the most fascinating countries in South America, and with its breathtaking landscapes, stunning scenery and mysterious Inca sites, it’s home to one of the most famous footpaths in the world and one of the best treks charity challenge events can offer – The Inca Trail.

The charity challenge adventure begins in the Inca Capital of Cusco – a fascinating city, full of colonial charm, hidden deep in the Andes Mountains. At an altitude of 3,200m, you 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 we’re off to conquer the one and only Inca Trail that leads 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 to the majestic Sun Gate, and then onto the fascinating ruins of Machu Picchu – and this is your charity challenge – to conquer this original Inca Trail. This is one of the charity treks that everyone is chasing!

This classic Inca Trail encompasses 3 high mountain passes – the highest being 4,200m. This trek for charity will be tough and will certainly test you, but upon witnessing the sight of Machu Picchu through the Sun Gate, the breathtaking views across the Andes, and experiencing the history and culture of the Incas, your efforts are more than worthwhile!
