PRESS RELEASE: Explore the magical Inca trail with EIC’s Challenge for a Cause 2020

The Electrical Industries Charity (EIC) is giving you an amazing opportunity to follow in the footsteps of a great lost civilisation with its fifth Challenge for a Cause – Inca Trail 2020. Are you up for a challenge? If so, book your place now and do something incredible in the new year.

The ten-day spectacular Inca Trail challenge will give you a chance to discover the beauty of Peru as you trek through a stunning combination of ruins of a mystical ancient city, mountain capes, and tropical cloud forests. As part of this adventure, you will also tackle the demanding Dead Woman’s Pass, which stands at 4,200m and eventually you will reach the Sun Gate that overlooks the stunning Machu Picchu. Once you catch your first glimpse of Machu Picchu in the early morning light, you will know it was all worthwhile.

Inca Trail is the most famous hike in South America – perhaps the world – and a must-do, life-changing experience. Hiking the Inca Trail through the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu is both arduous and awe-inspiring and will leave you with unforgettable memories to cherish for many years to come.

What’s more, during this magnificent challenge you will not only get to join EIC’s Managing Director, Tessa Ogle on the journey of a lifetime but will also help EIC to be first port of call to hundreds of your industry colleagues’ and their families by allowing the Charity to offer financial, practical and emotional support in their hour of need. So, what are you waiting for? Put that tick on the bucket list next to ‘visit Machu Picchu’ by signing up to trek the Inca Trail and be awed by a civilisation that ruled as the backbone of the Andes for nearly a century.

Book your place now and get ready to discover one of the new Seven Wonders of the World.
