'Incredible experience' awaits those who trek the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

A couple who decided to trek the Inca Trail in order to enjoy a Machu Picchu tour had an incredible time.

Writing about her experience in The Desert Sun, Maggie Downs said she felt a real sense of achievement after reaching the ancient citadel on foot.

She travelled with her husband and another ten hikers, who offered much-needed support during the trip.

Before setting off on the Inca Trail, the pair spent time in the Peruvian city of Cusco.

Mrs Downs said that coca tea is a good remedy for altitude sickness explaining that it "is actually a very mild way to soothe the tummy, help the respiratory system and open up oxygen flow."

She added: "The city is colder than I thought it would be, especially with my thin desert blood."

Travellers who wish to follow in Mrs Downs' footsteps should consider booking one of The Adventure Company's holidays to Peru.
