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. Standing proudly together! 

PLEASE NOTE: PARTICIPANTS WILL BE INVOICED £150 FOR A MANDATORY TREKKING PERMIT PRIOR TO THE CHALLENGE.  THIS IS ADDITION TO THE MINIMUM SPONSORSHIP OR CHALLENGE BALANCE.
