About
Embark on a beautiful 2 day trek through the Lares Valley, a trek through traditional native communities where you can see how these populations survive & thrive using local resources. Starting at the Hot Springs of Lares Valley you’ll pitstop for lunch after a fairly long drive from Cusco in the morning. After lunch you follow a trail for about 4 hrs to the first campsite of Huachuasi. Here llamas & horses graze and are kept for many of the farmsteads. On the second beginning from Huachuasi you’ll head deeper into the valleys of this area and see many traditional quechuan farm practices, whilst also scaling a 4,800m mountain pass. On the descent you’ll pass a mountain lake in Ipsaycocha & descend down to the town of Patacchanta for a final lunch, capping a great couple of days before the journey back through to Cusco or the Sacred Valley.

On arriving in Huacahuasi you'll overnight, in this welcoming Quechuan valley town, with the local community. Day 2 : Huacahuasi - Ipsaycocha - Patacchanta - Cusco On leaving Huacahuasi the route weaves through more local 'poblados', with glimpses of the Apu Pitusiray Nevada always in the background. Potatoes being cooked using traditional methods out in the open countryside. Passing 4,800m the descent then weaves via Ipsaycocha lake, winding down the valley below heading towards Pataccancha. Crop fields here are being harvested by local families. Pathways carved into the hillsides show the way down to Pataccancha where dinner will be prepared. From here, it's either onwards to Machu Picchu or a drive back to Cusco late on the last evening caps a great couple of days.

Unu Raymi expetitions were the best people, they helped me throughout my entire trip! so I went on a limb traveling to peru, me and my ex had planned a trip to hawaii, we split, anyhow i found james on kim kim, and i’ve always wanted to experience machu picchu, i brought both of my surfboards from canada down to go surfing for the other half of my trip ( on my own) James from the company had helped me plan basically my entire trip for me because i was in a bind, we did the lares valley trek for 2-3 days, he got me some day tours of sacred valley, some of the agricultural sites, local towns, food, and machu picchu! my trip was on a tight schedule, so they fit everything perfect for only a week, (half of the trip) then the rest i spent surfing and relaxing a bit of partying here and there 10/10

Many thanks for your kind comments Connor, it was great having you here, and becoming friends. We'd love to see you back another year and hopefully we can plan some longer trekking routes together along with some surfing!
