The Incan hideaway of Machu Picchu has sparked our imaginations for generations. Join us on this wonderful night of Peruvian food to satisfy our bodies and Peruvian adventures to satify the soul. We will feast on a 13 course menu in a private dining lounge at the wonderful Pastuso in Melbourne. During the feast, Peter Miller from No Roads Expeditions will describe some of the great adventures you can experience on your journey to the famed Machu Picchu.
If you have ever wanted to trek to Machu Picchu, then this is the night to have all your questions answered. Should I do the Sacred Valley trek and why in 5 days rather than 4? What is the Secret Trail to Machu Picchu? What about rafting and cycling can I do these too? And what about after my trek, where should I go; Lake Titicaca, Colca Canyon, Lima?
