The lost city of Machu Picchu, one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, sits on the bucket list of many and with good reason; it’s simply breath-taking.
This rewarding Trek to Machu Picchu challenge follows the spectacular and uncrowded Ancascocha trail and surrounded by the snow-capped Andean mountains, raging rivers and remote mountain communities.
You will be supported by experienced leaders and guides. The hike is slow, allowing for acclimatisation to the altitude and the opportunity to enjoy the unique surrounds and traditional Peruvian culture. The aches and pains will vanish at the end of each day as your friendly porters and chefs make life as comfortable as possible.
Exhaustion will turn to euphoria as you step through the Sun Gate to witness Machu Picchu, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, making all that hard work worthwhile and leaving you with memories to last a lifetime.
