The four-day Lares Trail
The Lares Trek is an alternative multi-day trek to Machu Picchu. There are many different variants of this trek, however, the most common is the route as offered by us and described below. With the Lares Trek, the emphasis is mainly on the way in which the local population lives in this area. We come through typical Peruvian hamlets where people still live and work as they did centuries ago. So one sees fewer Inca ruins than with the classic Inca Trail and the mountain peaks and passes are less high and perhaps less spectacular than with the Salkantay Trail. Nevertheless, one walks through a beautiful landscape and because it is one of the least crowded treks in this area, one hardly encounters other tourists. In addition, in terms of difficulty, it is one of the less difficult treks and therefore also ideal for families with children. It is the perfect trait for those who want to blend in with nature.
