nsistent gusts of wind, make even harder the persistent steps of those men who really want to revive the mythical walk of the old Peruvian runners, the Chasquis the indefatigable messengers of the sons of the Sun- in a path of stone and dust, winding acrobatically, among sacred mountains, lovely valleys and the turbulence and noise of the rivers of the Andean world.
Perspiration and fatigue. Dry, scarce air hardly enough to fill up the lungs. Contracted muscles, legs of lead, shoulders doubled by the torturing weight of the backpacks... ah, and the road is so long and the cliffs are bloodchilling and the temples palpitating with exasperating insistence due to the height. It is not easy to redo the steps of the Chasquis, trekking and hiking in Peru.
The millennial tradition of a town of walkers, because the Inca ordered to build trails and paths that crossed the robust mountains, the lonely and inhospitable moors, the fierce mounts, the cold punas of his vast empire, the biggest in Pre-Columbian America.
Exciting and historical steps in Peru, an authentic treasure chest for lovers of hiking and trekking who, with the force of their legs, "devour" the millennial routes that compliment the beauty of nature with the stone vestiges of old civilizations.
