Lares Trek & Machu Picchu – 7 Days
The Lares Trek is one of the most popular alternative treks to the classic Inca Trail. It doesn’t include as many Inca ruins as the Inca Trail, but it more than makes up for it by offering a fascinating trek through magical landscapes and a much deeper look at local life in the Andean region of Peru (a cultural element not found in the classic trek of the Inca Trail). It’s also slightly shorter, but higher, than the Inca Trail, and you’ll see far fewer hikers along the route. Our four-day Lares Trek takes you deep into the heart of the Andes, into a remote landscape of towering mountains, sparkling mountain lakes, and jaw-dropping views. You will also experience the living traditions of the local people as we pass through ancient alpaca farming and agricultural land villages, meeting friendly Quechua people who will be happy to share their culture. This hike is also much greener and the valleys more impressive in January, for example, after some rain! And then, of course, there is our final destination: Machu Picchu. We will arrive there on day 4 and you will have plenty of time to explore the magnificent Inca city, one of the new seven wonders of the world.
