The #LaresTrek is one of the main alternative #treks to take, if you want to go to Machu Picchu. The starting point lies 64 km away from #Cusco and 56 km from #MachuPicchu, and starts at the Lares hot springs. Compared to the #IncaTrail, #Lares #Trek is shorter and is higher in altitude. The trek will take you through hot springs, small native villages, lagoons, and parts of an #InkaTrail, the amazing Huaqahuasi Mountain pass, flora and fauna like llamas and #alpacas and very picturesque landscapes of flowers.

The #LaresTrek adventure will take you through natural hot springs, native villages, amazing campsites, mountain ranges and some of the most beautiful landscapes #Peru can offer, before arriving to the “Lost City of the Incas,” #MachuPicchu. On the way you’ll also briefly see the #IncaCity of #Ollantaytambo.

LARES TREK TO MACHU PICCHU

An Alternative Trek to Inca Trail

The #LaresTrek is a great alternative to the popular Classic #IncaTrail to #MachuPicchu, which has limited spaces which can be sold out quickly.

The #LaresValley route is known for going through parts of #Peru where the local people still preserve their traditional way of life since the time of the Incas.

Spanish in these areas is a second language since most speak mainly Quechua and most families who have lived in these areas for generations, dedicate much of their time to agriculture and their weaving tradition.

The #Lares Valley is home of many traditional weavers and farmers and famous for homemade textiles. The #Lares people speak Quechua and Spanish and will often give you a chance to weave something yourself.

Lares Trek + Short Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in 5 Days / 4 Nights

You can combine a part of the #IncaTrail with the #LaresTrek ! This way you can see the local people living the way their families have been for hundreds of years as well as enjoying the history left behind by the Incas along the #InkaTrail.

The Peruvian government has strict limitations on how many people are permitted to use the Inca Trail (permits are issued to about 200 trekkers per day and about 300 porters/guides with a total of 500 permits issued daily). We recommend booking the Inca Trail as early as possible, sometimes even 6 months in advance!

We also recommend booking the IncaTrail #Trek before booking your hotels, flights, etc., since #IncaTrailPermits are limited!

Daily departures are available throughout the year (March through January-February the Inca Trail is closed), even though the recommended period for this trek is April to October because it is the dry season.

All private service departure dates are adapted to your request any day you choose. Also contact us for group departure date availability.

INCLUDES
- Briefing (usually scheduled one or two days before your trek)
- Tourist bus to beginning of trek
- Train (Expedition Class) from Ollantaytambo to #Km104
- Inca Trail entrance ticket
- Machu Picchu entrance ticket
- First Aid basic equipment and oxygen for emergencies
- Professional bilingual (Spanish/English) guide (guides who speak other languages upon request)
- Meals: 4 breakfasts, 4 lunches, 4 dinners (vegetarian, vegan, etc. dietary requirements available if requested during time of booking at no extra charge)
- 2 Bus ticket from Machu Picchu to Aguas Calientes
- #ExpeditionTrain from Aguas Calientes to Ollantaytambo (see note about train availability, changes in times, etc.)
- Transportation from Ollantaytambo to #Cusco
- 1 night in hotel in #Ollantaytambo
- 1 night in hotel in #AguasCalientes
