  • Machu Picchu, the “lost city of the Incas”, is perhaps the most well-known destination in Peru. Of course, it wasn’t ever really lost, but it is one of the most beautiful archaeological sites in the world and is a must see for anyone traveling to Peru. Machu Picchu is one of the main stops on a typical trip to Peru which usually also includes the Nazca Lines, Lake Titicaca, the Sacred Valley, and the Colca Canyon depending on how much time one has.
    Given Peru’s emergence as a major tourist destination and the popularity of the site, visiting it has become both easier and harder, depending on how you get there. And getting there is definitely a big part of the fun.
    The traditional Inca Trail, a 4-day trek through the Andes ending at the “Sun Gate” of Machu Picchu is the most popular hike but its popularity has meant the institution of a permit system and booking months in advance.
    Other, alternate routes have been developed to give people a trekking option to the Inca Trail. Lares Valley and the Salkantay Trek are two of the most popular alternate routes.
    Machu Picchu and three of the standard approaches (Classic Inca Trail, Lares Valley, and the Salkantay trek) as well as the Incan Solstice ceremony of Inti Raymi will be highlighted in this talk.

     

    The presentations will be held at the Royal Victoria Yacht Club in the Discovery room from here on in. This will give us some consistency and a regular space without interruption. I hope you will agree $5 is very inexpensive for the 2-3 hours of quality entertainment and socializing you will have.

    We'll meet and mingle, have a drink or two starting at 5:30 and expect the presentation to get started at about 6:30. There is tons of parking but please consider a cab if you are going to be drinking.

    The $5 goes towards covering the cost of the room. There is also a cash bar available. Can't wait to see you there.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
