Lares Trek Fauna and Flora
Lares Trek - Flora and Fauna


Along the Lares trek you’ll find many Eucalyptus trees, which become very tall and sometimes you’ll find them in forests in the area. Another typical Andean tree is the Kiswar and the Queuña is a small tree/bush found in the area. There are also Lupinos which are beatiful blue and purple flowers along the route. You’ll also see the different plantations and farms cultivating corn, potatoes, Quinua, Kiwicha and grass for the farm animals.


This rural area will have a lot of domesticated animals like cows, horses, llamas, alpacas, pigs, sheep, chickens, guinea pigs, dogs and cats. If you’re lucky you may be able to see some wild animals as well, like pumas, birds (Huallatas and Condors), foxes and skunks.
