About this guide

And getting there is all part of the thrill; gruelling hikes through sacred mountains, surrounded by awe-inspiring scenery, past the remains of previous civilizations, and through indigenous villages where daily life continues, largely unchanged for thousands of years.

Sure it’s a challenge, but the rewards are profound and will last a lifetime.

But with so many routes to choose from, where do you begin? What to expect? How to prepare? The questions are as endless as the mountain trails are long. And that’s why we created this book; your first guide on this journey. A journey that is long, winding, sometimes difficult but always worth the effort.

Welcome to Peru. Happy trekking.
