Description of Peru trekking holiday, Lares

Take the road less travelled trekking in the Lares Valley - a breathtaking Andean arena blending high passes, peaks like the 5818m Mount Colque Cruz, sub-tropical valleys, atmospheric hill villages marked by the enduring patterns of a lifestyle with pre-Inca roots.

After travelling through Peru's Sacred Valley, trek to your first mountain base in the thatched-roof village of Cancha Cancha via the Pachacutec pass at 4700m, in the lee of peaks like Chicon (5530m). The following days see you walking through further mountain passes, past the glacial lakes of Suirococha and Yuraccocha (home to Andean Ibis and Andean geese), and along an Inca stone path hemmed by dramatic ridges and waterfalls.

Descend into a lush landscape of ancient farms and lagoons where llamas and alpacas graze alongside Andean water birds. Track a surging river through sub-tropical vistas dotted with adobe villages to reach the geothermal pools at Lares where you can soak away any hiking aches.

Transferring to Ollantaytambo for the train to Aguas Calientes, you're set for an early morning guided visit to Machu Picchu to enjoy sunrise over the iconic ruins.
