We just arrived back from the Lares 4D/3N Trek with Alpaca Expeditions. The trek itself encompassed amazing scenery, challenging climbs (which were very satisfying to complete) and lots of interaction with locals including Llama! The trip exceeded our expectations.
As for the Alpaca Expeditions crew, our guide Javier was outstanding. He was very organised, attentive, went above and beyond and was also very funny. He stopped to provide medical assistance to a local boy who had cut his foot while running to see us. He took us up the highest climb (over 4600m) while stopping many times to ensure everyone was coping. He has a very good grasp of English making it easy to converse and was very knowledgeable in everything the trip took in. Enough cannot be said about the chef Alex also. What he could achieve on a hot plate is second to none and was ably assisted by the soux chef. The horsemen worked tirelessly to ensure tents were pitched and facilities were ready for our arrival at each camp. We understand this company also gives back to the local communit and is making steps to sustainability with its treks, so it's nice to think that we were supporting the local communities. We cannot recommend this company enough. Many thanks for the memories of a life time.
