Description

Lares Trek is one of the most popular alternative treks to the classic Inca Trail. It doesn’t include as many Inca ruins as you see on the Inca Trail, but it more than makes up for it by offering a fascinating hike through magical landscapes and a much deeper look at local life in this part of Peru (a cultural element that not found on the classic Inca Trail trek). It’s also slightly shorter, but higher, than the Inca Trail, and you’ll see far fewer hikers along the route. Our 4 day Lares Trek to Machu Picchu takes you deep into the heart of the Andes, into a remote landscape of towering mountains, shimmering mountain lakes and jaw-dropping views. You will also experience the living traditions of the local people as we pass through ancient towns, meeting friendly Quechua people who will be happy to share their culture with you.

  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
  • Get tips from a local
  • Hotel pickup included
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THE LARES TRAIL TO MACHU PICCHU 4 DAYS

Please read the following information carefully. It will help you resolve any questions that may arise about our services.

IS FOR ME?

The Camino Lares-Machu Picchu 4 Days is an excellent alternative for adventurous tourists who are capable of traveling long distances at altitude. The highest point we will reach is known as Abra Pachacútec and is located at 4,700 m.a.s.l. / 15,419 feet. Although it is not too strenuous to go through there, it is important to have physical resistance and to have experienced a previous period of acclimatization in the city of Cusco.

HOW MANY DAYS DO I NEED TO ACCLIMATIZE IN CUSCO BEFORE THE EXCURSION?

It is very important to be well acclimatized to the altitude before starting the trek. We recommend that you arrive in Cusco at least 2 or 3 days before the excursion. This way you will avoid problems related to altitude sickness. Our company also has ideal tours that will help you comply with your acclimatization process:

  • MOUNTAIN OF 7 COLORS: Full day tour.
  • SACRED VALLEY: Full day tour.
  • HUCHUYQOSQO TRAIL: Full day tour.

If before arriving in Cuzco you have visited another area of ​​Peru that is at high altitude, we still recommend that you enjoy a full day in the city to rest and recover. This way you will fully enjoy your walk.

WILL I RECEIVE INSTRUCTIONS?

Yes. We will organize a meeting to explain the itinerary in detail and answer any questions you may have. This meeting will take place at 5:00 p.m., one night before your departure, in the lobby of your hotel.

WHAT HAPPENS WITH THE BALANCE OR BALANCE?

We would be very grateful if you make the payment in cash of your balance or balance —in dollars— at our main office in the city of Cusco. There are ATMs nearby. You can also pay online with Visa or PayPal, however, you will have to pay a surcharge of 8% on the price of the service, charged to Visa or PayPal. To make your payment through PayPal you must log in to your PayPal account using our email address: flycuscoperu@gmail.com

HOW SHOULD I USE THE CANVAS BRIEFCASE THAT WILL BE GIVEN TO ME?

The night before starting your trek, we will give you a canvas briefcase so that you can pack the clothes that you will wear during the days of the excursion, as well as your sleeping bag and other items that you see fit. The maximum weight allowed is 7 kg / 15.4 lbs. We will carry your canvas bag, in addition to everything you need for the camps, in our pack animals. It’s important to note that you won’t have access to the items you’re carrying in your duffel bag until the end of each day. This is because our pack animals will always move ahead of the group. To carry other belongings such as waterproof jackets, a camera, sunscreen, medication, etc., you can use a comfortable backpack with a capacity of between 30 and 50 litres.

CAN I STORE MY LUGGAGE IN YOUR OFFICE?
