Inca Trail + Lares + Machu Picchu 4 Days.

Description.

Itinerary:

The Lares Trek tour begins at 6:00 AM with a pick-up location that is set during your meeting with us in our office the day beforehand.

From the pick-up location, we will travel to Lorenzo’s lodge where we serve the first breakfast (buffet style) and from there, continue on to the small town of Lares (3,100 meters above sea level) with a travel time of about 3 hours. Upon arrival, we will head directly to the medicinal thermal baths to enjoy some relaxation time. After lunch, a long walk of approximately 4 hours to the campsite of Huacawasi (3,900 meters above sea level) awaits us.

On the way, we will pass through incredibly beautiful Andean scenery and a few small towns where we will have the opportunity to learn a bit more about the High-Andean culture. Once we arrive at the campsite, we will eat dinner and receive an informational about ancestral knowledge related to Incan
astronomy.

After breakfast, we begin our longest and most difficult day of the entire trip (lares trek) with a hike lasting 7-8 hours. The first 3 hours will be a continuous ascent to the highest point of our journey – the Ipsay Pass at 4,490 meters above sea level.

During the entire ascent, you will have the opportunity to pass through truly indigenous Andean towns, learn about their culture and traditions, as well as see alpacas, llamas, vizcachas (Peruvian hares) and if we have luck, the occasional condor that passes through the area.

At the top of the pass, our guide will explain a bit more about the region and the importance that those mountains held within Incan religious practices. After descending from the pass for the following 40 minutes, we will arrive at the Ipsaycocha Laguna and eat lunch. After lunch and a well-deserved break, we will continue to the Patacancha village from here, Lorenzo Expeditions provide you a car and in few minutes we will arrive to our second camp also will then eat dinner and our guide will hold an informational meeting about the next day of the tour.

After our energetic breakfast, we will travel to Ollantaytambo train station.

The train will take us to km. 104. It is here that will begin our hike today we will pass through Chachabamba, an Incan archaeological site with an altitude of 2250 masl. or 7,381.89 ft. We will continue with our ascent until we reach Wiñay Wayna our second archaeological site, where we will have a guided tour.

Throughout the journey you will appreciate the beautiful views of the Urubamba River as well as the great variety of vegetation of this nature reserve (historic sanctuary of Machu Picchu).
We will have lunch, Box Lunch style, after which continue with our hike to the Sun Gate, “INTI PUNKU” where we will have the first panoramic view of Machu Picchu.
