The Salkantay Trek is a 4 to 6 days trek that takes you across the Andes Mountains to the hidden Inca City of Machu Picchu. This trek will take you across a range of landscapes from dry, to rocky, to lush green jungles, and across a range of altitudes, from 1,900 meters to 4,650 meters (the highest point of the trek).

The goal : Raise a minimum of £3000 and trek the Salkantay Trek in Peru to the famous archeological wonder, the Machu Picchu for Make A Wish Foundation UK. Read the story here !
