Machu Picchu and Lares Valley- Charity Trek

Machu Picchu and Lares Valley- Charity Trek Overview

COUNTRY: Peru
MAX. ALTITUDE: 4200m
CATEGORY: Fundraising
DIFFICULTY:
P2
T1

The spectacular Lares valley lies just beyond the Sacred Valley of the Incas. The short drive from Cusco will immerse you into an ancient Andean life where hardy locals herd llamas and plant potatoes as they have for centuries amidst beautiful Andean surroundings. Their incredibly bright, high-quality woven red clothes are startling against the mountain background. The expedition itself is an interesting mixture of spectacular mountain scenery, glacial lakes, waterfalls, high plains, hot springs and charming Andean villages. The views of the snow topped peaks of Veronica, Chicon, Pitusiray and Sawasiray keep us company most of the way. 

The lovely hot-springs at Lares village are another highlight along with a cultural weaving experience at Huilloc. The final location of the Pumamarca ruins and the superb walk down on an original Inca trail along massive, remarkably well-preserved Inca terraces to the back entrance of Ollantaytambo completes this satisfying trek.  It is also unique amongst Andean trekking in that vehicle support may be used at several points en-route. This gives extra flexibility with the trek route, allowing us to make for a superbly luxurious camping experience and gives us extra security in case of any emergencies.

The trek easily combines allowing us to meet the afternoon train to Machu Picchu from Ollantaytambo, and includes an overnight in Aguas Calientes allowing us to explore Machu Picchu in depth the following day with a private guide before catching the train back to Cusco. It is recommended to arrive at least one day earlier in Cusco to allow for acclimatization and to enjoy some of the amazing history and culture that Cusco has to offer.
