The Lares Trekking Route is one of the best alternative Treks to Machu Picchu for those looking for less trodden routes, visit Andean Villages, explore pristine glacial lakes, interact with locals, and hike with llamas and alpacas.
Visitors will have the opportunity to visit the Lares Hot Springs, where one can relax in the different pools with different temperatures, pure volcanic water with minerals good for bones and muscles, and relax enjoying the views of the mountains.
Lares Route is also famous for its cultural interaction, where travelers can interact with the locals and learn about their lifestyles. You can visit isolated villages, schools, and local houses in the most remote parts of Peru, where people speak the Native Inca Language, Quechua.
Another attraction of the Lares Route is the beautiful glacial lakes where is possible to see native birds, herds of llamas and alpacas, and enjoy nature away form the busy life.
