About this tour

Escape the crowds on this challenging trek through the mountains of Peru. This varied trek is constantly moving up and down the climatic zones, leading you up steep paths through dense cloud forest, over spectacular scenic passes and along ancient Inca paths to the best-kept secret of the Vilcabamba range: the lost Inca city of Choquequirao. Machu Picchu may draw the crowds, but Choquequirao is awe-inspiring with its secluded splendour. If you like being off the beaten path, are intrigued by rich history, and crave dramatic landscapes dominated by snow-capped peaks, this is the trek for you.
