Meet the Author

Hilary Bradt, founder and publisher of Bradt Travel Guides, has been writing about South America since her first trip there in 1969 when she fulfilled her dream of seeing the land of the Incas. For 13 years she led treks to Peru and Bolivia, and now lectures on aspects of travel and low impact tourism. She lives in Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire.

Read an Excerpt

Broadly speaking, trekking differs from backpacking in that your gear is carried by pack animals or porters and that a local company is involved in supplying tents, food, transport etc. In effect, a trek is a package tour which leaves you free to enjoy the mountains without worrying about any of the logistics...There are many advantages of trekking over backpacking, not least that all the complications of travel in rural Peru and Bolivia are taken out of your hands. In spite of this, the ultimate hiking experience, for most people, will be with one or two chosen companions, and all the effort and hassle of backpacking. For this is what exploring the wilderness is all about. You are open to serendipitous events, you can stop when you are tired, go as far as you want, and choose the route that most appeals to you.
