Travelling up to Machu Picchu

 

The most popular route up to Machu Picchu is the famous Inca Trail.  The number of permits for the Inca Trail is limited daily, so when the Inca Tral is not available, we also offer the Lares Trek up to Machu Picchu.  The easiest way up to Machu Pichhu on our tours is by train from Cusco and if you select this optoin you get to spend a couple of additional days in Cusco too.

 

About the Lares Trek

 

The stunning Lares Valley in the Andes Mountains has all the natural beauty of the Inca Trail – magical mountain scenery and the legacy of the Incas – but without the crowds. With stunning landscapes and remote settlements, the area has remained largely untouched by tourism and retains its authenticity, offering a glimpse of life the way it used to be in Peru. Unlike the Inca Trail where you will trek and camp alongside lots of other travellers, on the Lares Trek you can trek all day without seeing a single sole! Aside from the herds of llamas and alpacas that roam free, you may meet traditionally-dressed Andean farmers and their families on the remote hillsides, whi live in traditional thatched stone and adobe houses. 

 

The Lares Trek is a similar grade to the Inca Trail Trek (with one challenging high pass) and is fully escorted. This less crowded option, which ends with an early morning bus ride up to Machu Picchu on day 4 (allowing a full day to visit to Machu Picchu), is thought by many to be more spectacular than the famous Inca Trail. The Lares Trek includes 2 nights camping, 1 night hotel – Aguas Calientes & tour of Machu Picchu.

 

Machu Picchu by Train

 

For a less demanding trip to Machu Picchu, travel by train. You can spend an additional two nights independently exploring the sights of Cuzco before a short bus transfer to Poroy, followed by a scenic rail journey taking approximately 3.5 hours, which offers incredible views of the Andes as it plies its route to Aguas Calientes where you will stay overnight The following morning there is a bus ride of approximately half an hour to the ruins of Machu Picchu, where you will enjoy a fascinating guided tour of the Lost City of the Incas with free time to explore before travelling back to Cuzco later in the afternoon.

 

If you do not want to complete either the Inca Trail or the Lares Trek, you must advise your travel consultant at the time of booking.

The day
trip starts with a short bus ride from Cuzco to Poroy,

ride then takes us to the entrance of Machu Picchu. Later
in the afternoon we return to Cuzco. The additional days
