Lares Trek to Machu Picchu 8 days / 7 nights
This is a great trek for those wanting to experience the incredible beauty and rich culture of the Andes by taking the "road less-traveled" while still experiencing certain Inca trails. Authentic encounters with Quechua communities and the spectacular scenery that surrounds them give these treks a wonderful blend of tradition and splendor. Passing through the rich pastoral regions of the Cordillera Urubamba, we traverse high mountain peaks and sub-tropical valleys, stopping along the way to enjoy scenic lagoons, natural hot springs, and Inca ruins. The remoteness of the area has allowed its people to preserve traditions of llama and alpaca herding, potato cultivation, and colorful weaving dating back to the Incas. These fascinating treks offer a first-hand look at the life of the Andean farmer and a journey into a region of outstanding beauty.
