Travel expert Hilary Bradt has been lucky enough to explore some of the world’s most interesting countries.
And in 1973, she and her then husband George took the old Inca road in Peru leading from Cusco’s Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu. They hiked it, explored the ruins and published the first ever description of the Inca Trail in 1974.
Now Hilary and co-writer Kathy Jarvis have written the only trekking handbook to cover the whole of Peru. Its is a clear guide to South America’s most varied hiking destination and includes 50 best walks and hikes and is packed with practical information, such as where to stay and eat in Peru’s top trekking bases.
It is published in a small, portable format which can easily be slipped into a rucksack and is the perfect addition for inexperienced walkers and hard core trekkers alike.
