The Lares trek to Machu Picchu
The Lares Trek is different from the Inca Trail. It’s two days of hiking through valleys and high mountain passes, and includes more villages and native people (and llamas!). It’s also completely uncrowded and an absolutely beautiful way to get to know Peru.
After two days of hiking and two nights of camping in tents in villages, we had a day of train travel and a night in a hotel. Then we spent the fourth day at Machu Picchu, having a tour and then exploring the site on our own.
I was determined not to bore you with a hundred photos, so I’m just sharing a film-roll worth (remember those?) Here are the highlights from our trek and our visit to Machu Picchu.
