Lares

A spectacular alternative route

filled with traditional culture, gorgeous vistas, and the chance to glimpse modern-day Andean life in remote, un-touristed villages.

Located in the eastern Urubamba mountain range, the Lares Valley is a fantastic alternative Peru hike when the Classic Inca Trail is sold out. What makes the Lares Valley stand out? Definitely the exposure to traditional Andean culture! The Lares trail takes you through several Andean villages where you will meet Quechua-speaking indigenous people who continue to live as they have for centuries.

You’ll hike through Andean tundra, clearing high mountain passes with views of stunning glacial lakes. And no Lares trek is complete without a stop at the famous Lares hot springs! You’ll love luxuriating in these natural thermal baths – a great way to start or end this incredible Peru hike!

The conditions in the Lares valley also make it a great wet season trek (November to March).

Lares is also an “easier” trek in Peru making it a great choice for families trekking in Peru with children. The Lares trek is also much less frequented by trekkers and you are likely to see hardly another soul on this route! This makes Lares a great choice for hikers looking to get off the beaten path and enjoy a bit more solitude while hiking in the Andes.
