Combine travel, adventure and philanthropy with Cuso International’s epic hike to Machu Picchu. During this nine-day excursion you'll take the trail less traveled, meet Andean farmers and explore the world of the Incas—all while supporting Cuso mission to eradicate poverty and inequality.

The 2020 Cuso Challenge takes place from March 27 to April 4, 2020, with five of the nine days spent hiking the majestic Peruvian landscape. You’ll experience Cuso’s work in action with a day-long excursion to the Chacan community in Cusco where Cuso volunteers are working with Centro Bartolome de las Casas (CBC) by aiding in the area of sustainable tourism.

By joining the Cuso Challenge, you are helping women and girls gain the skills they need for lasting employment, promoting sustainable economic development and strengthening the Andean way of life.   

Amaze yourself. Trek for good.
