Join a team of COCO supporters taking on an epic trek to the site of ancient Inca ruins in Peru - the magical Machu Picchu!
Embedded within a dramatic landscape at the meeting point between the Peruvian Andes and the Amazon Basin, the historic sanctuary of Machu Picchu is among the greatest artistic and architectural achievements in the world, and the most significant tangible legacy of the Inca civilisation.
Standing 2,430 m above sea-level, in the middle of a tropical mountain forest, its giant walls, terraces and ramps seem as if they have been cut naturally in the rock escarpments. Shrouded by mist and surrounded by lush vegetation, the sprawling citadel lives up to every expectation. This spectacular location is the most famous archaeological site on the continent. In fact, Machu Picchu has been voted one of the new 7 Wonders of the World and is a must-visit for all travellers in South America!
