Machu Picchu tour hopes to raise £12k for charity

Travellers who are keen to experience the sights of Machu Picchu may be inspired to book a holiday with The Adventure Company after hearing of a charity trip to the ancient Incan citadel.

According to The South Wales Argus, two sisters from Newport are set to trek the 25-mile Inca Trail in April 2010 in order to boost the coffers of the Meningitis Trust.

They explained that they were spurred on to take part in the expedition after their mother died from the disease one year ago.

In embarking on the challenging trek, the sisters and four of their friends will attempt to raise £12,000 for the non-profit organisation.

"This is something completely different to what we are all used to but we're ready for the challenge for such a good cause," said one of the sisters, Sarah Tyler.

For travellers keen to follow in their footsteps and visit the historic site, The Adventure Company offers a number of holidays in Peru including Journey to Machu Picchu.
