The Ancascocha trek combines little-visited Incan historical sites, breathtaking vistas and even a glimpse at modern-day Andean life, before ending up at Machu Picchu.

Jewel-like lakes dot the landscape of the Ancascocha trail, as you hike through pristine wilderness and camp near some of the regions most impressive peaks: Salkantay, Humantay and Huaynanay, just to name a few.
