Wheel the World agency has developed a special wheelchair to explore the lost city of the Incas

The majestic Inca city Machu Picchu was built on top of a mountain, more than 2,000 meters above the sea, and is currently one of the main destinations in South America. Despite being one of the most sought after places by tourists, the place is practically inaccessible to wheelchair users.

With this difficulty in mind, the Wheel the World, a travel agency in California, used crowdfunding to develop a special wheelchair and then offer accessible itineraries in Machu Picchu.

The company, which has one of its founders in a wheelchair, offers two options for routes in the country: one of them goes to Machu Picchu and lasts for one day, the other also includes a passage through cusco and the stay can take from three to six days.

The wheelchair developed for the tour is lighter and has special wheels, one in the front and two in the back, similar to a wheelbarrow. Wheelchair users who want to travel alone, without the company of relatives or friends, can only count on the support of the agency.

All visits are fully guided with the option of being in English or Spanish. The value of the packages includes adapted transport, equipment necessary for the access of visitors and helpers.

The initial value of the trip is US$ 990 (ceR$ rca 3.6 thousand). Besides Machu Picchu, the agency also carries out other accessible itineraries and experiences for the Mexico and for the Chile.
