About this Event
Climb 2 Cure takes you on the trip of a lifetime to Machu Picchu – giving LLS supporters an opportunity to link fundraising with a trip to remember.
Our trekking partner, Embark Exploration Company, leads fully-guided trips that are reserved for LLS – providing a first-class outdoor experience from start to finish.
"Mountains are the temples of Andean culture, the locus of life, the source of water, food, and spirit. The arduous but rewarding Salkantay Trek carries you via pristine mountain country, over a 15,000-foot pass, and down undisturbed valleys to the foot of Machu Picchu. Set amid the deeply-incised Vilcambamba range, this high-altitude lodge-to-lodge hike is a premier entry into the footloose, uncrowded Peru of old, with breathtaking views of the Inca empire’s heartland. After a total 35 miles of solitary trekking, you arrive, weary and elated, in the Machu Picchu valley." - from Embark's Team In Training itinerary
