The Inca Trail is said to be one of the top ten trekking trails in the world… and one of the most popular charity challenges – and it’s not surprising why! 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.
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 us, 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, our efforts are more than worthwhile!
