About Lares Trek
The trek through the Lares Valley has all of the appeal of the Inca Trail – magical mountain scenery and the impressive archaeological legacy of the Inca Empire – but without the crowds. With stunning landscapes and remote settlements, the area has remained largely untouched by tourism and retains its authenticity, offering a fascinating glimpse of the way life used to be in Peru. Traditionally-dressed Andean farmers in colourful ponchos wander the local markets, trading as they have done for centuries while herds of llamas and alpacas roam freely on the rugged slopes. Thatched stone and adobe houses adorn the valley with guinea pigs running loose before they eventually become dinner for the family.Read More
