VSA's Inca Trail Trek to Machu Picchu

Story

Machu Picchu is one of the most iconic sights in South America, and the culmination of the magnificent Inca Trail trek through the Peruvian Andes. Our team are fundraising for VSA as they trek this breathtakingly beautiful route through valleys and high passes, scattered with fascinating Inca ruins from the 5th to the 14th of April 2019.

Trekking on Inca-paved paths and steps, the route takes you up through lush cloudforest to the demanding Dead Womans Pass (4200m). Continually climbing up or dropping down, the way is steep at times, and the altitude adds to the challenge. Team VSA will finally come to the Sun Gate, which overlooks Machu Picchu, where the first magical glimpse provides an unforgettable reward for their efforts.

By donating to VSA you are supporting the most vulnerable of people living in our communities across Aberdeen/Aberdeenshire. Every year we support thousands of local people and your support enables us to provide the best of care so that local people can live the best of lives.

About the charity

VSA
VSA

Based in Aberdeen, VSA is the city's major social care charity. VSA has grown since 1870 from charities that operated with Voluntary Service Aberdeen, combining them to provide even better care and value for the local community today. At VSA our aim is to put our service users at the heart of all that we do regarding our planning and the delivery of our services. That's why we continue to be successful after 140 years of providing social care and support across Aberdeen city and the North East of Scotland. VSA is Aberdeen's major social care charity, in fact it's the largest city social care charity in the UK. It's success has been in its bringing other local charities together to ensure that the people in Aberdeen are provided with the best of care. We cannot do this on our own. We need the continued support of hundreds of firms, individuals and groups across the city and shire as well as trusts and other organisations to help us raise the funds that we need, nearly £17 million every year to ensure that we can continue to provide the best possible services to the most vulnerable people in our local communities.
