13 unforgettable trekking-days along white summits and green lagoons
This trekking and cultural trip takes us first into the very centre of the fascinating mountain landscapes of South America and in a second part to the unique cultural sites of the Incas: Cusco and Machu Picchu.
After the 13 day-trekking with pack mules round the mountains of the Cordillera Huayhuash where we will traverse several passes, spend the nights at charming lagoons and experience unforgettable views of breathtaking peaks such as Yerupaja or Siula Grande, we continue our trip by plane and train to Cusco and further on to the Inca site of Machu Picchu, rescued from oblivion in 1911.
