In partnership with the Make-A-Wish ConnecticutChoose a Challenge offers 20 explorers from Southern Connecticut State University the chance to follow in the footsteps of the Spanish Conquistadors and early 20th Century adventurers as you cross the high Peruvian Andes in search of Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas. The trek departs from the bustling colonial mountain town of Cusco and winds its way through breathtaking mountain passes, past sacred mountains and through humid jungle trails to reach the fabled ruins of Machu Picchu.
