Inca Heartland – Highlands of Bolivia and Peru Trip Leader – Dave Walborn, Presentation by Bill Stine, with writing and editing help from Dave Walborn.

Amazing presentation showing the local culture, history and artifacts of the Incas. Included the hike of the Inca trail and highlights from visit to Machu Picchu. Got exhausted just thinking about the high altitude hiking. Wonderful archeological highlights. Worth watching this again. You can view the video on if you missed it.
