Lares Trek to Machu Picchu (4 Days, 3 Nights) 

555.00

Our trek will start near the village Lares, approximately 40 miles north of Cusco and 35 miles east of Machu Picchu. The Lares trek route transverses typical Peruvian Andean mountain areas.

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

The Lares trek is one of the main alternatives to the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. It is slightly shorter and higher in altitude than the Inca Trail; unlike the Inca Trail, permits are not required to hike the Lares Trek.
