For the people of Cusco, Peru, their Festival of the Sun (Inti Raymi) is the biggest celebration of the year. A hiking team of three Comfy Sacks employees, horsemen and guides arrived just in time to let the townspeople try out the comfortable bean bag chairs. The kids of Cusco, home of the Incas, loved hanging out in the Comfy Sacks and persuaded others (including the local police!) to join in the fun. The word quickly spread and the evidence that Comfy Sacks were indeed the most comfortable chair in the world was mounting.
Moving on with a 7-day hike on the Salkantay trail to Manchu Picchu, it took the help of porters and horsemen to cross the trail and scale a 16,700 foot peak to reach the legendary city of Manchu Picchu with Comfy Sacks in tow. At each stop along the way, the Comfy Sacks served as a perfect place for tired hikers to kick back and relax. The employees of Llama Path (the cooks, porters and horsemen) were able to enjoy the Comfy Sacks after a hard days work.
Knowing that the comfortable bean bags would be there for them at the end of each day’s 7-hour hike, they pushed on with enthusiasm and vigor. After four more days in the Andes, on the renowned Inca trail to Manchu Picchu, the hiking party and Comfy Sacks reached the legendary city. To finish off the monumental trip, the CEO of Comfy Sacks (Tyler Shearburn) shot some pictures and video of the product at Manchu Picchu to share with everyone.
For the hikers, guides and residents of the Peruvian cities of Cusco and Manchu Picchu, the conclusion was that the Comfy Sack was indeed the most comfortable chair in Peru. Comfy Sacks would also like to thank the people of Peru for being such warm and gracious hosts — they are truly some of the nicest people on this earth. Next destination….Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa.
