Peru Sacred Valley Tour: Begin your tour exploring the ancient sites of Ollantaytambo & Yucay. Beautiful and tranquil locations these are the perfect starting point for your introduction to Peru and the Sacred Valley.
Once acclimatised you’ll be ready to embark on a short 3 day trek of the Lares Valley.
Nestled in the Sacred Valley, the Lares Valley gives you a beautiful and cultural experience of life in the Andes. Traditions and ways of life exist from many centuries ago, the inhabitants of this valley always provide a warm welcome for visitors; making this a really special place to spend your time trekking.
Starting at Huaran in the 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 Cuncani. Day 2 you’ll trek from Cuncani through to Huacahuasi, encountering local farmsteads and communities along the way.
The third day beginning from Huacahuasi you’ll head deeper into the valleys of this area and experience more 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.
Then the climax to your trip – Peru Amazon Tours; travelling to Tambopata National Reserve offers a unique opportunity to discover a lively biodiversity of birds, mammals, reptiles and trees. Record-setting numbers of animal species are concentrated within small areas; and the variety of plant life is greater than almost anywhere in the world. To help you experience the wonder of this magic place, we have prepared a programmed itinerary for your stay at Inkaterra Hacienda Concepcion.
On you last day you’ll head back to Puerto Maldonado for your connecting flight out to Lima.
