Day 1Cusco – Pisac– Huaran – Cancha Cancha

The excitement of your Lares trek to Machu Picchu will help you rise early for your pickup at 5:00am whether in Cusco or Sacred Valley. Within the hour, we will arrive at the ancient remanents of the truly awesome Pisac Inca Citadel. If you are able to take your eyes off the archeological site and look up towards the skies, you will be memerized at the flight of the Cararcara falcons hovering and circling in the endless sky. Our guide will share with you the history of the Pisac Inca Citadel in all its brilliance. Breakfast is served high above looking down at the plunging gorges and awesome views of the Inca city and valleys. Driving tonward for 40 more minutes to Huaran, we meet our team. Time to saddle up, boots on, and begin our first 3 hours, gradually ascending up to Cancha cancha. There, we replenish our energy for our trek ahead with a delicious lunch prepared by our trekking chef. Cancha cancha being the most isolated and self sustainable community traditional to the core, has no bus route or electricity. Re-establish your connection with nature and the realness of life with the locals as they share their homes with you. It would be greatly appreciated if you could bring some toys, old useful clothes, notebooks, fruit or any other items with the local. Two hours later, we have completed our first trekking day and arrive at our campsite. Boots off, time to enjoy high tea with amazing views of the frozen Andean peaks.

On our second day after a delicious breakfast, we begin our 4 hour hike northeast, an intense trek, passing over three high passes to the highest point of our trek called Pachacutec passat (4,700 m/15,420 ft). This is the time to pat yourself on the back and embrace the feeling of total exhilaration and self achievement having reached the summit. Compensating for the tough trek are the views of the rigid glaciers, shockingly blue glacial lakes, llamas, rugged valleys and undulating farmlands. After a time to enjoy the 360º views, we descend for an hour, taking lunch by the mirrored glacial lake, with picturesque views of the Lares Valley with plenty of llamas and alpacas. After a siesta time, we descend for 2 hours til we reach our campsite located by the Kiswarani community (3,700 m/12,139ft). Taking the backroads to Machu Picchu Llama, herders are readily seen and the local indigenous people will open their hearts and interact with you in the Quechua language (Inca’s language). Your guide will act as your mediator to translate and teach you some Quechua language and then you get to enjoy the stunning waterfall.
