Inca Trail to Macchu Picchu 2017
We have teamed up with international challenge providers Discover Adventure to offer you this once in a lifetime opportunity to trek this iconic trail with fellow cat lovers, while also raising vital funds for Cats Protection.
Machu Picchu is one of the most iconic sights in South America and the culmination of our magnificent Inca Trail trek through the Peruvian Andes. Join us as we trek this breathtakingly beautiful route through valleys and high passes, scattered with fascinating Inca ruins. Trekking on Inca-paved paths and steps, our route takes us up through lush cloud forest to the demanding Dead Woman’s Pass (4,200m). Continually climbing up or dropping down, our way is steep at times and the altitude adds to the challenge. We finally come to the Sun Gate, which overlooks Machu Picchu, where your first magical glimpse provides an unforgettable reward for your efforts.
There is a non-refundable, £449 registration fee payable to join the event; this is required in full on signing up to the challenge.
We then ask you to pledge to raise a minimum of £4,000 by 31 July 2017. You are able to nominate a local branch or centre to support throughout your fundraising if you wish. While this may sound like a daunting amount we have ensured you have plenty of time to raise the funds and also have put together a very robust pack of resources to help you. Coupled with this you will receive dedicated support and guidance from our events team.
We understand the commitment, courage and thought that goes into participating in a challenge event on behalf of Cats Protection and promise we will do our very best to give you all the help and support you need to have a successful challenge and raise lots of much needed funds to help us care for cats and kittens.
