THE TREK

Find yourself speechless as you reach the fabled ruins of Machu Picchu, nestled amongst lush forest, emerging from the mysterious mist that surrounds its peaks. Departing from the bustling colonial town of Cusco, hike through sacred mountain passes and jungle trails, camping under the stars and taking in the epic scenery along the way.

This is a multi-day trek through diverse ecosystems, led by experienced guides, climbing steep mountain passes with several hours of trekking each day as you follow the breathtaking Salkantay route to the Lost City. Tough, but truly rewarding, this challenge will leave you with memories to last a lifetime.

Registration Fee: £490
Second payment: £245 (due in January after second loan drops)

The trip includes accommodation, meals, flights, transport and more, so all you need to do is focus on the challenge ahead!

Deadline to sign up is Saturday 1 June 2024

THE FUNDRAISING

Of course, this wouldn’t be a Bath RAG initiative without some fundraising! All funds will go towards RAG’s chosen charity for the challenge (TBC) so the money you raise will all be for a brilliant cause and really help the community.

The fundraising target for this challenge is approximately £4,000 per person.
A challenge leader can get up to 45% off this target if you do well in the role!

This might seem quite daunting, but you will have a year to raise the money, and we have a dedicated team which will help you to maximise your fundraising potential! Plus there is an option to pay a bit more towards the challenge yourself and reduce the fundraising target.
