Lares Valley Trek 3 Days / 2 Nights

Departures minimum with 2 persons.

Price per person: $ 580 USD

DAY 1: CUSCO - HUARAN TO CANCHA CANCHA: 

5:00 pick up from your hotel to take you to the beginning of the trek at Huaran (3000m asl) in the Sacred Valley; it is 1 ½ hours by private bus. We pack the horses and start to walk northward, the trail climbs gently following the Cancha Cancha river towards the community of the same name. On this walk along the river we will see cultivated fields and pass through old Polylepis forests; this type of vegetation is very interesting for bird life like Hummingbirds, Flycatchers, Tit tyrants and the valley itself is very impressive. The walk today is around 5 hours, we will spend the night in tents at 3800 m asl next to Cancha Cancha village.

DAY 2: CANCHA CANCHA TO QUISHUARANI:

After an early breakfast we will continue up hill. This will be the hardest day of the trek because we will pass the highest point of the trek: the pass is at 4700 masl. The view from here is overwhelming; we have the Pitusiray and Sahuasiray snowcapped mountains right in front of us. Descending we pass by several lakes. On this day we can see herds of alpacas, llamas and sheep, it is also possible to see Gray Brocket Deer, Viscachas, Andean Goose, the rare Giant Coot, Puna Hawks and the impressive Andean Condor.

This night we camp at 4000 masl close to Quishuarani village.

DAY 3: QUISHUARANI TO CUNCANI LARES AND CUSCO:

Today we climb up to the second Pass at Willcaccasa mountain, 4458 masl, again the view of the Andes and its beautiful valleys are impressive. We arrive at Cuncani village at 3900 masl. From here we continue downhill towards the Lares Valley and its hot springs where we can have a well deserved bath. Our bus will be waiting for us to take us back to Cusco.
