LARES TREK OVERVIEW

On the opposite side of the Sacred Valley, opens up a beautiful valley at a higher level that offers an ideal opportunity for adventure hikes. Lares Trek, encompasses all the wonderful things we love about hiking, a lesser known path, allowing the few hikers enjoy the scenery and the flora and fauna closely, marvelous mountain views, intense emerald colored glacier lakes, passing through renewing Queuña Tree forests and observing closer Andean villagers lives.

Pumas are easy to find on the higher sides of the hills above the trail.

The trek ends in Lares town where you can dip into the hot springs and relax.

Come and experience this enriching trek route!

DIFFICULTY LEVEL: Moderate to challenging. We strongly recommend acclimatizing to the altitude by staying in Cusco at least two – three days prior to the trek.
