Lares – Quishuarani Machu Picchu 4D/3N

Cusco – Valley Lares – Machu Picchu

Archaeological, cultural, ecological, hiking and camping


4 Days / 3 Nigths




Trekking in the Lares area is like stepping back into the past. We will meet villagers farming potatoes by hand as they have done for centuries. The locals continue to dress in the famous red ponchos and we will have the opportunity to see the women weaving these. We trek over high passes surrounded by alpacas and llamas with views of high snow peaks.
