In the summer of 2010, a team of Scouts lead by Dave King, Richard Brammall and Alex Porter headed to Peru for a 6 week expedition. The expedition was split into 3 sections, the first was a 2 week Community Develpoment Project at Azul Wasi childrens orphanage near Cusco. After this a 7 day extended trek on the Inca Trail finishing at the amazing Macchu Pichu ruins. The final phase of the expedition was a discovery tour to the areas of Puno, Lake titicaca, Colca Canyon and Arequipa. We worked closely with the scouts in Peru and visited groups in Cusco and Arequipa. We would like to thank our friends Rafeal Escobar and Henry Ojeda.
Many thanks to our sponsors Buff and Trekwear.
