The lost city of Incas, Macchu Pichhu, is now accessible to handicapped individuals thanks to the initiative taken by Wheel The World.

What Is It 

Situated a good 8000 feet above the Peruvian Andes, it was almost impossible for people in wheelchairs to navigate the high and uneven terrains until Wheel The World, a touring company , designed sturdy wheelchairs and make this journey accessible to all.



What’s In It? 

Specializing in curating tours for the handicapped, Wheel The World was started by two friends, one of whom used a wheelchair and from their the passion to make any journey accessible for all, this initiative was born. Now thanks to Alvaro Silberstein and Camilo Nevarro of Wheel The Word, those with wheelchairs can also travel to Machhu Picchu, fearlessly .

The entire trip is for $990 which is Rs 70,948 for Indian residents . There is also a more engaging tour for $1490 i.e. Rs 1.06 lakhs. It runs for six days in Cusco and Macchu Picchu.
