Lares Trek Peru
The Lares trek is a great alternative to the popular Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, which has limited spaces which can be sold out quickly. The Lares Valley route is known for going through parts of Peru where the local people still preserve their traditional way of life since the time of the Incas. Spanish in these areas is a second language since most speak mainly Quechua and most families who have lived in these areas for generations, dedicate much of their time to agriculture and their weaving tradition. Lares trek is sometimes called the Weavers Way or Weavers Trek for this reason.
Unlike the Classic Inca Trail trek which has a limited number of permits which the Peruvian government issues daily, the Lares valley trek is still unregulated, so make sure to go with a responsible company. We are authorized tour operators for treks (including the Inca Trail which is limited to authorized operators in the Cusco area only) and as a local Peruvian business we feel that we should help bring more opportunities to the local rural communities in the areas where we operate. We hope that with tourism we help improve living standards and bring more benefits to the Peruvian people.
