This ten day challenge includes five days of trekking and camping along one of the most iconic trails in the world, leading to the ruins of Machu Picchu. Beginning in the city of Cusco, I’ll trek along the Inca Trail and the banks of the mighty Urubamba River, where I’ll climb the Inca’s ancient stone steps that lead towards the Andes. On day 5, we trek along Dead Woman’s Pass at 4,270 m, where I’ll end the trek exploring the sights of the lost city and UNESCO World Heritage site of Machu Picchu itself.
