Format: Paperback
How I wish this book had been published 10 years earlier! I have hiked the Inca Trail twice; first in 1989 and then again in 1997. Both times were immensely enjoyable but the first time I wasn't really sure what to expect, despite having read what I could about the country, and in some ways was not very well prepared. Even though I knew what to expect the second time I would still have found Richard Danbury's book very useful. In just over 250 pages it contains a great deal of information not only about the Inca Trail itself but also the whole of the Cuzco/Sacred Valley area as well as background information on Inca history, modern Peru, and practical advice for travellers. In addition to the classic Inca Trail the book covers the more recently opened shorter trail and other treks that can be done in the area. The Inca Trail casts such a spell that one day I hope to return and do it a third time. That may not be for a few years, but the author has stated his intention of producing up-dated editions when necessary and the book deserves to be popular enough to justify that. Danbury's guidebook fits very easily into the smallest pocket on most rucksacks and I fully expect it to be in mine next time.
