Machu Picchu and Lares Valley

Machu Picchu and Lares Valley Overview

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

 The spectacular Lares Valley lies just beyond the Sacred Valley of the Incas, a short drive from Cusco that will immerse you into an ancient Andean life, where hardy locals herd llamas and plant potatoes as they have for centuries amidst beautiful surroundings.

The Lares Valley 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 for most of the way, and the hot-springs at Lares village are a highlight, along with a cultural weaving experience at Huilloc.

We will seek out the final location of the Pumamarca ruins, and walk down an original Inca trail along the massive and remarkably well-preserved Inca terraces to the back entrance of Ollantaytambo.

Our final push towards Machu Picchu itself is along the Inca Trail, and we enter the sacred site through the world famous Sungate.

We will have the chance to fully explore Machu Picchu in depth with a private guide and have the opportunity to climb Machu Picchu mountain, before catching the train back to Cusco.

Vehicle support may be used at several points en-route, giving us extra flexibility with the route, giving us extra security, and allowing a superbly luxurious camping experience.
