The Lares Valley trek is sometimes known as the ‘Weaver’s Way’ or the Weavers Trail and it’s a wonderful way to immerse yourself into Peruvian culture and visit Machu Picchu at the end of your hike.
The Lares trek is filled with plenty of high mountain scenery, alpine lakes and waterfalls. In the Lares Valley, women and children continue to wear traditional clothing, of bright red and its varying shades of natural dyes. This 4-day hike is a wonderful way to immerse yourself into Peruvian culture and understand typical culture and ways of life. Stone houses are covered with thatched roofs and it’s like you have stepped back into the middle ages, while great herds of llamas roam the landscape as you hike. See itinerary below for details.
