This Lares trek is an excellent alternative to those who missed out on the Inca Trail, and a shorter one too. Join us on this 4-day, guided tour and enjoy traveling off the beaten path. Starting from Cusco, this trek will take you through Calca, Huacawasi, Aruraycocha and Yanahuara before you are on your way to Machu Picchu via Aguas Calientes.

The highlight of the trek probably is Machu Picchu, the famous Inca citadel that you will explore during a two-hour, guided tour on the last day of the tour. However, there is more to this trip than just that. Enjoy the stunning scenery of Peruvian highlands, travel past villages where people still live in adobe and stone houses with thatch roofs. Cross two high passes that are more than 4000m and see beautiful natural landmarks along the way, including the gleaming Laguna Aruraycocha.

Visit to Machu Picchu on the final day of the tour. Combine the cultural heritage and natural beauty of the Peruvian Andes with a trip to the most impressive Inca ruin. For more details, please go through the itinerary below.
