The Lares Trek to Machu Picchu connects with the history, people and culture of this region. It is an experience designed for those who like long walks, a deeper connection with the native communities and also enjoy warm thermal baths during the tour through the Lares Valley.

The tour lasts 4 days and allows a train connection from Ollantaytambo to Machu Picchu. This tour is perfect for those who are looking for something out of the ordinary in the direction of the wonder.


Day 1Cusco - Lares (Baños Termales) - Wacawasi

The tour begins in the direction of the village of Lares where we will enjoy its famous thermal baths and then continue our ascent to the village of Wacawasi where we will spend our first night. We will share with the communities of shepherds and farmers who maintain ancestral ways of life in the heights of Cusco.

Day 2Wacawasi - Ipsaycocha - Patacancha

This day in the morning we will be able to visit an artisan workshop to see the manufacture of Alpaca fabrics. Then we will start our ascent to the Ipsaycocha pass (4200 masl / 13779 ft). From there we can enjoy the incredible view of the snow-capped mountain “Veronica” at 5750 meters above sea level and then continue towards Ipsaycocha Lake, where we will have lunch. In the afternoon we will begin the final hike of the day until we reach the village of Patacancha where we will have dinner and spend the night.

Day 3Patacancha - Wylloq - Ollantaytambo - Aguas Calientes

The hike on this third day is shorter, but no less spectacular. We will start around 8:00 am in the direction of Ollantaytambo passing through the village of Willoq and then visiting Pumamarka where we will appreciate ancient Inca terraces where we will arrive for lunch.

In Ollantaytambo we will spend some time exploring this picturesque tourist attraction and after a short free time to explore the charming citadel we will take the train to Aguas Calientes where we will arrive around 9 pm.

Day 4Machu Picchu - Cusco

The fourth day of the tour is dedicated to explore the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu. For those who booked one of the optional mountains “Huayna Picchu” or “Montaña Vieja” (+70 USD) will be able to climb at their leisure and return to Aguas Calientes afterwards.

In the archaeological complex we will have a guided tour of approximately 2 hours, we can also have some free time and finally descend to the town of Aguas Calientes where we will have free time while waiting for the train back to Cusco.
