Lares Trek to Machu Picchu
About the Journey:
There are many variations of the Lares trek, but the one we will take has been known as “Weaver’s Way”, the easiest of the Lares trek variations. It is a more quiet trail and gives travelers more of a true Andean culture experience as we will pass through some of the traditional weaving villages. We’ll cross two passes: Huchaycasa and Ipsaycocha, both providing beautiful views of the mountains. We’ll also pass hot springs and beautiful emerald lakes on our trek. If you want to experience local Peruvian living, escape into the remoteness of the wild, and take a trip to the ruins of Machu Picchu, then the Lares Trek is the perfect journey for you.
* Note: The altitude can be a problem for beginner hikers. It is recommended to spend at least three days prior in Cusco to adjust.
