Rob Lowe Is Literally Hiking to Machu Picchu

By Gary Trock

Rob Lowe is on the hike of a lifetime as the star is traveling to the citadel of Machu Picchu.

The former "Parks and Recreation" star is traveling along the trail to reach the ancient Incan ruins. During an IG update, Lowe could be seen standing in front of an impressive mountain range before the big climb.


Lowe updated fans when he first got into the South American country, writing, "Just landed in Cusco, Peru over 11,000 ft."

He was also sporting a "Knope 2012" hat, which is probably the farthest from Indiana support for the lovable fictional politician of Leslie Knope has ever been shown.


On Friday, Lowe switched up his baseball hat for a more Peruvian style one, and showed off his new look while walking around the city.

He wrote, "On my way to the plains at 12,316 ft, prepping for our 8 hour hike into Machu Pichu [sic] tomorrow."

The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is no easy task, and consists of three overlapping routes that ascend into different and drastic environments.


It's unclear if Lowe is doing the trek for personal adventure, or if he's filming for a project.

He posted a victory photo later Saturday evening, showing that he made it all the way to the sacred citadel.

Earlier this month, Lowe was taking part in a more leisurely activity, and took Chris Pratt out for a round of golf before the "Guardians of the Galaxy" star tied the knot with Katheirne Schwarzenegger.

The two were seen hitting the links in Santa Barbara hours before the ceremony, which went down at the famed San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito.

There's definitely not a golf course at Machu Picchu.
