What to Expect
First Day:  We’ll leave early in the morning by bus from 

Cusco. During the transport we’ll pass a lot of archaeological remains, local handcraft-markets as well as large tracks of cultivated lands inside the 

Sacred Valley of the Incas.

Halfway the Sacred Valley we’ll enter and visit in the province of Calca (high 2940m) where we’ll change roads and ride up to the highest part of this trek called Huacacasi (4400m). After this pass we’ll be going down to the little populated Lares Valley (high 3250m). A few moments later we’ll arrive and visit at the hot medicinal springs of Lares (3200m). Here we’ll have time to enjoy each bath with different natural charms and temperatures between 28 and 34 degrees Celsius. After lunch at the hot baths we’ll start hiking until Huaca Wasi (high 3600m) where we’ll camp for the night.

Second Day : Today is the toughest day on the Lares trek: After early breakfast we start trekking with a moderate up-hill climb to reach to the highest point of our trek, Ipsay Pass (4,550m/15,017ft). From here we enjoy the spectacular views of snow-capped mountains, lakes, isolated communities, Andean locals, llamas and alpacas.

After time to enjoy this beautiful sight, we descend to Ipsay Lagoon for lunch. Then continue downhill interacting with the real descendant of the Incas. Finally we arrive to our camp at Patacancha (3,750m/12,377ft), where we’ll spend the night in a hotel.

Third Day: Another day of hiking where we’ll pass local communities and small villages such as Willoq (3400m), Pumamarca (3200m) and many others. From Patacancha through the landscape, crossing these villages we can taste the traditions and habits passed on by our ancestors throughout the times of the Tahuatinsuyo Empire (the Inca-culture and traditions).

After a couple of hours hiking and visiting the land we’ll arrive at Ollantaytambo (2850m). From Ollantaytambo we’ll take the train to Aguas Calientes (2050m), the touristical town build beneath the ruins of Machu Picchu where we’ll spend the night in a hotel.

Day Fourth: After an early rise and breakfast we’ll take the first bus up to the archeological complex of Machu Picchu (high 2400m). A few moments later we’ll enter this untouched Inca-sanctuary to have a guided tour with a professional guide. After this tour that will last for about two hours you’ll have plenty of time to wonder around the ruins by yourself. We’ll all meet afterwards to go down to Aguas Calientes (2050m) where we’ll take our train back and bus to Cusco.
