The 4-Day Lares Trek Experience

The Lares Trek is a lesser-known alternative to the famous Inca Trail, offering a unique and off-the-beaten-path adventure. Over the course of four days, you will journey through awe-inspiring landscapes, encountering breathtaking mountains, serene lakes, and picturesque valleys.

Your trek will begin in the village of Lares, where you will have the opportunity to interact with the local Quechua people, renowned for their rich cultural heritage and traditional way of life. Immerse yourself in their traditions, learn about their weaving techniques, and gain insight into their spiritual beliefs.

Day 1: Lares to Huacahuasi

On the first day of your trek, you will embark on a scenic hike from Lares to Huacahuasi. As you make your way through the stunning landscapes, you will witness the beauty of the Andean flora and fauna. Keep an eye out for llamas, alpacas, and maybe even the rare Andean spectacled bear.

Upon reaching Huacahuasi, you will set up camp and enjoy a delicious meal prepared by our talented chefs. Take some time to relax and soak in the tranquility of the surrounding nature before resting for the night.

Day 2: Huacahuasi to Ipsaycocha

As the sun rises, prepare for another day of adventure. The trail will lead you to Ipsaycocha, a stunning mountain lake surrounded by awe-inspiring peaks. Along the way, you will have the opportunity to interact with local communities and observe their traditional way of life.

After a rewarding day of trekking, you will set up camp near Ipsaycocha. Marvel at the starry night sky, listen to the sounds of nature, and reflect on the incredible experiences of the day.

Day 3: Ipsaycocha to Patacancha

On the third day, you will continue your journey towards Patacancha. This part of the trek is filled with panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. Immerse yourself in the beauty of nature as you hike through diverse landscapes and encounter local wildlife.

Upon reaching Patacancha, you will have the opportunity to visit local weaving communities and witness the intricate art of traditional textile production. Engage in cultural exchange, learn about the significance of textile traditions, and support local artisans by purchasing their handcrafted creations.

Day 4: Patacancha to Ollantaytambo and Aguas Calientes

On the final day of your Lares Trek, you will hike from Patacancha to Ollantaytambo, an ancient Inca fortress. Explore the archaeological site and learn about the fascinating history of the Incas.

From Ollantaytambo, you will take a scenic train ride to Aguas Calientes, the gateway to the magnificent Machu Picchu. Enjoy a comfortable stay in Aguas Calientes, ready to embark on your Machu Picchu adventure the following day.

The Magic of Machu Picchu

No trip to Peru is complete without a visit to the awe-inspiring Machu Picchu. As part of your Lares Trek experience, we have included a guided tour of this world wonder. Explore the ancient ruins, marvel at the remarkable architectural achievements of the Incas, and learn about the fascinating history and significance of the site.
