The Moonstone Trek
THE ALTERNATIVE INCA TRAIL - THE MOONSTONE TREK
With Inca Trail permits running out earlier than ever and 500 people starting the trail most days during peak season, Exodus Travels are delighted to be able to offer a fantastic alternative trek that can be substituted into most of our Inca Trail trips. This is an isolated route with unexplored ruins, discovery at every turn and great mountain views – an excellent introduction to high Andean trekking. Explore the Moonstone Trek with Exodus Travels, the adventure holiday experts.
The trek starts in a quiet, rural valley between Cuzco and the Sacred Valley and finishes in Ollantaytambo, only seven miles upstream from the start of the Inca Trail. It passes through seldom-visited Andean villages, Inca and pre-Inca ruins and heads onto a beautiful altiplano plateau surrounded by glaciated peaks. Most groups won’t encounter any other tourists for the entire trek and the combination of stunning mountain scenery and wildlife, fascinating relics and real isolation is truly rewarding.
