There are many paths that lead to Machu Picchu but none like the Inca trail. Perhaps the best know trail on the entire American continent. It doesn’t sound so epic, when heading out from Cusco, the destination is just 43Km away.

If you’re already getting a bit of excitement up on the Roof of the World, where better than on the back of a bike – it saves on the uphill shoe leather and its not short of excitement. The specific where is Ladakh, essentially Manali to Leh. So of course, you already need to be in the region, it’s more of an excursion than a package tour, but if you like a rush with your back-packing adventures and can get up to Manali sometime soon, there will be plenty of excitement, tons of spectacular scenery, challenging mini-rivers of mud, old forts, crystal clear lakes, the Tanglang-La Pass said to be the second-highest motorable drive in the world and in case I didn’t mention it plenty of excitement.
For some people overlanding excitement is found by heading out into the wilderness, and where better than Africa. For others it’s getting the ultimate off-road experience, where better than Africa.

Some more cautious types might feel doing it with others in a purpose built truck, with plenty of stowage, immediate companionship and river fording air-intakes is the way for them.
