Lares trek to Machu Picchu 4 Days – 3 Nights
Come and enjoy the Lares trek with us. This trek is a great alternative to the Inca Trail. Still offering the beauty of the Andes with less crowds, it offers an outstanding combination of amazing mountain and valley scenery in a remote area.
This tour will really give you an insight into authentic Quechua communities where you will see thatched stone houses surrounded by herds of llamas and alpacas, and even guinea pigs running loose inside the houses. This hike starts in the Lares Valley, in the village of the same name, where you can enjoy a night dip in its relaxing hot springs. We then head to the Andean communities of Huacahuasi, Patacancha and Willoq, reaching the village of Aguas Calientes on the third night after a 2-hour train-ride from Ollantaytambo. Finally, the fourth day is devoted to exploring the impressive Inca citadel of Machupicchu.
