This incredible journey takes us from the cultural wonders of Cusco, to the ancient ruins and dramatic scenery of the Sacred Valley of the Incas and the ‘lost’ Incan city of Machu Picchu, to the vast wilderness of Lake Titicaca and Bolivia’s high altiplano, finishing up in the intriguing high city of La Paz. Trekking in the Andes is an exhilarating experience, as anyone who has trekked with us would testify. After savouring the historical and cultural highlights of Cusco and the Sacred Valley of the Incas, we commence our first trek. For seven days we explore the spectacular wilderness of the Peruvian Andes, following trails to the soaring heights of the Cordillera Vilcabamba and establishing camp beneath the majestic Mount Salcantay (6,271m / 20,574 ft). This stunning Salcantay trail is less trodden than the busier Inca Trail and is highly regarded by past trekkers. On the final day of this trek we join up with the legendary classic Inca Trail for the dramatic postcard view of Machu Picchu from the ‘Sun Gate’. Machu Picchu is a startling legacy of the sophisticated Inca Empire that flourished in the 15th century, and your first view of it will take your breath away! Travelling across the altiplano (high plateau) via Lake Titicaca, we continue into Bolivia and begin our second trek: a four-day, three-night camping journey into the spectacular Condoriri region. Surrounded by the snow-capped peaks of the Cordillera Real (Royal Mountains), we explore this dramatic valley before continuing on to La Paz to capture the cultural pulse of Bolivia. The combination of spectacular wilderness, remote trekking, mind-boggling ancient ruins, fascinating cities and vibrant local culture make this one an adventure to remember!
