Highlights of our Lares treks.

We have the most scenic cultural lares trekking route. Through the Lares Valley you pass through the most isolated indigenous communities which are keeping the Inca culture alive. One of the highlights of this trek is the privilege to interact with the local people and learn about their traditional Peruvian lifestyles.. There are six different routes through this valley, depending on where you start. Research each company carefully and ask exactly which route they take. Each route is incredibly picturesque, with majestic ice glaciers, shockingly blue glacial lakes, waterfalls, llamas, and alpacas.

Lares Trek

SAM Travel Peru is the only tour operator with its own scenic and cultural trekking route, that treks COMPLETELY OFF THE BEATEN PATH with the LARES TREK TO MACHU PICCHU. You pass through the most isolated indigenous communities keeping the Inca culture alive, and get the privilege to interact with them. Our own unique route is incredibly picturesque, with majestic ice glaciers, shockingly blue glacial lakes, waterfalls, llamas, and alpacas.

Also our Lares Treks can be conbined with the short Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, in which you hike through the last section of the Classic Inca Trail, exploring the most amazing Inca ruins of Wiñay Wayna (Forever Young) at 2,600 m/8,500 ft. Few people get the opportunity to see these elaborate water fountains, temples and agricultural terraces. These provide a perfect opportunity to learn about the history of the Incas.. Then we hike to the Sun Gate, from which you have your first breathtaking view of Machu Picchu! Then lets get up early morning sun rise at Machu Picchu and get fully guided walking tour of the amazing Inca Cuty ; Machu. This is really the best way to finish your amazing adventure with SAM Travel Peru.
