The Lares Trek is a beautiful 2 night/3 day trek covering Andean valleys, vistas of snowy peaks, mountain lakes, and visits to traditional communities. This amazing trek is one of the many Inca Trails in Peru and is considered a moderate to difficult hike for which you need to be prepared. The elevation is as high as 4500 meters. The trek is a one way trail and our route on it covers a total distance of about 40km. These are good reasons to be in good physical shape and spend a couple of days in a high altitude city such as Cusco before starting the trek (which we do).
