This is one of our best short treks in Nepal, and gives you the chance to stay in community lodges, which are located well off the tourist trail in some of the region's smallest and most beautiful villages.
In my final year of university I took an international development class for first year students. I'll be honest in telling you that I took the class because I knew that it would be easy, I had already taken all the advanced courses and had done well in them. I was taking the class for the one and only reason of boosting my overall marks. What I didn't know is that there would be no class in all of my studies that would stimulate my thought process as much as this class.

Leigh, our social media jedi (that's him in the middle), is still unpacking his bags and hanging up his hiking boots after taking on the Inca Trail on our Inca Highlands trip. We quizzed him on his favourites from South America.
The Inca Trail – tougher than you thought it would be?

This weekend, our Social Media guru Leigh is heading over to South America, off to trek the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. He’ll be busy blogging about his travels (check out his blog here) and looking for recommendations and tips on Facebook, so we thought we’d catch up with him to find out precisely how many guinea pigs he reckons he’ll eat, and why a Bolivian kebab is a must.
