4 Days / 3 Nights
Machu Picchu
Min Age : 8

At the Lares trek to Machu Picchu 4 Days, you will enjoy a different walk, less crowded and full of incredible landscapes, great mountains, people with very pink and very friendly faces, and more

Scenic valleys, snow-covered peaks, and numerous lakes surprise you with their dazzling colors and location; on route find traditional Andean communities that remain almost unchanged for the last hundreds of years conserving their millenary old-style weaving and farming practices while wearing their typical clothing. Nowadays, this trail is still being used by local people and is common that you see children or women with their colorful skirts and hats making their usual activities such as working on their crops or herding their llamas and alpacas. Also, you can support them by buying their homemade textiles or providing school supplies for their children.
