Our Lares trek via Cuyoc is one of the most beautiful paths which offers gorgeous landscapes during this rather demanding hike. Here you hardly meet any people even though we start close to Urubamba in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, continue to the valley of Pumahuanca, cross the Puma pass, reach Cuncani and end our trek with a relaxing bath in the hot springs of Lares. During the hike we will pass through small villages which offer a rare and fascinating insight into the traditional life of the Andes, we pass gorgeous green valleys, turquoise colored lakes, flocks of lamas, alpacas and sheep, enjoy a view of the snow capped mountain peaks and meet locals in their traditional colorful clothing. And we will get an insight into the ancient agricultural customs as well as the weaving traditions of Andean textiles.
On the third day we will travel by bus from Lares to the town of Ollantaytambo where we will catch the train to Aguas Calientes where you will be picked up and braought to your hostel. Finally the most important day has arrived and you will be visiting the Sanctuary of Machu Picchu where you will have plenty of time to explore this marvelous Inca site and where you can climb up the Huayna Picchu or the Montaña Vieja mountain. By train we will return directly to Cusco.
