Lares Trek Tours

Travelers who want an alternative route to the famed Inca Trail can find the same scenic Peruvian landscapes, challenging paths and epic views on the popular Lares Trek. This well-known route is a bit shorter, but offers a more challenging climb for outdoor enthusiasts looking a less traditional route to Machu Picchu. 

In addition to incredible landscapes and lush hillside vegetation, Lares Trek hikers will likely cross paths with traditionally dressed Andean farmers and local villagers along this scenic trek. Old-school settlements offer overnight shelter and mountainside markets showcase handicrafts and handmade items in an environment that allows travelers a chance to interact with locals.

Practical Info

The trek kicks off in the village of Lares, about 40 miles north of Cusco and 35 miles east of Machu Picchu. Travelers will need to transportation to start of the trail, which is about a five-hour trip from Lares.
