Itinerary 

Day 1: Cusco – Lares Hot Springs  – Cuncani Community – Quishuarani

We will pick you up from your accommodation at 5 a.m to start the renowned Lares Trek walk. Any hotel, condominium, or apartment in Cusco, Urubamba, Huaran, or Pisaq can be picked up. Until we reach the Lares Hot Springs, where you will enjoy your first breakfast while taking in breathtaking views of the Andes Mountains, it will take us three hours to travel along the picturesque terrain of the Sacred Valley and into the Andes. After breakfast, you may relax in one of the hot springs’ several pools, which range in temperature from ice-cold to scorching.

They are all made of pure volcanic water, which is thought to have therapeutic properties and be beneficial for your bones, muscles, and headaches. After spending some time in the spas, you will take a 20-minute drive to the trailhead. Give the horsemen your duffel bags so they may carry them to the encampment.

Following lunch, a ritual including llamas will be performed by our horsemen llameros, exhibiting these lovely creatures. The Incas valued llamas as holy animals and an essential part of their economy. You will learn about these creatures from our llamas, who will also explain why possessing one was considered to be a show of prestige. They are currently going extinct while being continually fed with lesser animals. We intend to employ some llamas in keeping with Inca custom. We do this to benefit the neighborhood that aids in their protection. Walking with llamas is enjoyable since they are amiable creatures. Just keep your distance or they could try to kiss you.

Additionally, you will have time to stroll through the town and stop by a few local residences, where you may learn about the way of life and long-standing customs of the inhabitants. If there is time, we’ll stop by the classroom where the students still converse in Quecha, their native tongue. Toys, notebooks, and school supplies are also acceptable items to bring. Maybe you could even teach them a few English words.

It will be another two hours, gradually uphill hiking until we arrive at the campsite. There you will be welcomed by our trekking staff, who will have your tents set up. We’ll enjoy some hot drinks, as the sky darkens and the stars start appearing. Finally, you will enjoy a lovely dinner prepared on-site. If you want to keep star-gazing, you may stay up for a while longer or, if you’d rather, you can turn in to your tent.

Day 2:  Quishuarani Community – Cancha Cancha

Today, our service of hot beverages will wake you up at 5 a.m. Views of the vivid lake and the Kiswarani Valley will be breathtaking. The locals will already be up and about, taking their llamas and alpacas out to graze, so you may see them. After you have completed packing your stuff, breakfast will be provided. We’ll then prepare food and fill up our water bottles before you start your journey to Machu Picchu. The trek to the mountain’s peak will take three to four hours.

The Condor pass, is the name of this pass. We’ll zigzag up to make up for the steep ascent. Beautiful vistas may be found all around. You’ll see llamas, alpacas, lakes, and waterfalls. In the event that you become fatigued, we will have a horse to ride. You will be above the clouds and mountain peaks as you reach the Condor Pass, and the 360-degree views are breathtaking.

You’ll start the hour-long, downhill journey to Vista Point, where lunch will be served. A few llamas will be grazing nearby. After lunch, you’ll climb the final three hours downhill while taking in breathtaking views of several lakes, llamas, and alpacas before reaching your campground in Cancha Cancha, the only community without access to modern technology. located at (3,745 m/12,290 ft), where locals continue to follow traditional Inca practices. 85 percent of the homes in this Incan town are still constructed using traditional techniques, with stone walls and grass-thatched roofs. This community lacks both electricity and automobiles, unlike the other villages in the Lares Valley. Your porters will also erect your tents here while you enjoy the outdoors. You’ll have some time to interact with the neighborhood kids.

We ask our visitors to offer this support in the health and education of this local hamlet since we give them food and school materials. You are welcome to provide any supplies you feel these Quechuan-speaking kids might need for their homes or schools. When you’re finished, your guide will take you to a local family’s home where you may observe how locals live. In addition to learning about the traditional hand-woven textiles made of llama and alpaca wool, you will observe how they grow their guinea pigs. Dinner and hot beverages will be served to you in the evening.

Day 3: Cancha Cancha – Huaran – Maras salt Mine  – Ollantaytambo

You’ll be woken early by our porters with a hot beverage, and you’ll have some time to pack your luggage and eat breakfast. You’ll have time after breakfast to look around the community and go to the nearby primary school, where the old Inca language, Quechua, is still taught. You’ll start the final section of your Lares excursion as soon as you’re prepared. It will take four hours to descend this magnificent trail while passing further llamas and alpacas. We’ll go by fields where ancient Incan methods are used to cultivate potatoes, fava beans, and many other traditional crops.

You will have the opportunity to learn about Peruvian agriculture from locals who still cultivate their land by hand using equipment from the Inca era. We shall now begin to descend to the Sacred Valley’s warmer region. You will begin to see crops that are different from those in the high mountains and begin to feel the microclimate changes. People cultivate corn, quinoa, kiwi, peaches, avocados, and other kinds of fruit all around the Sacred Valley. The little Sacred Valley settlement of Huaran, which is located at 2,700 m / 8,858 ft, is where your journey will come to a finish. This region has a rich Inca heritage. At this point, you will bid farewell to your horses, riders, chef, and porters.

We will board a van at Huaran and go via short-distance into the valley to the Saltpans of Maras, where the Salineras salt pans are located. A saltwater spring gushes forth and flows down the side of the mountain here, at a height of 11,000 feet above sea level. There have been built over 3,000 little evaporation chambers that appear to be sliding down the slope. Since before the Inca era, they have been in use. Because the salt is full of natural minerals and some of it even turns pink, it is claimed to have therapeutic qualities. These pans are owned by local families, who earn a livelihood by selling salt to the nearby towns. If you want to buy anything, there is a little store on the property. We will travel to our accommodation in Ollantaytambo for the evening after touring Saltpans of Maras.

Elevation: 2,700 m / 8,562 ft
Weather: Cold
Walking Distance: 6.2 miles / 7 km

Day 4:  Ollantaytambo – Inca Trail – Aguas Calientes

Our guide At 5:30 a.m., will pick you up from your accommodation. We will then proceed to the train station where we will board the 6:10 a.m. train bound for Ollantaytambo. With its breathtaking vistas of the Urubamba River, snow-capped mountain peaks, and farms with cornfields, this train trip is one of the most picturesque in the entire globe. As the temperature rises as we descend, you will see how the microclimate shifts from the highlands and cornfields to lush jungle valleys with ferns, bromeliads, and orchids. It will take one hour and 45 minutes to get off the train at Km 104. Before beginning your hike, you will also have breakfast. Since this is the very first checkpoint on the Inca Trail, be sure to carry your original passport.

You will have some time to get ready before the hike after breakfast. The first Inca site, Chachabamaba, will be ours to visit shortly after that. The earliest ancient Incan entry point for the Inca Trail was Chachabamaba. Your tour guide will give you some background information on this ruin before you begin the three-hour ascent to Wiay Wayna, the most well-known Inca monument along the route. Along the walk, you’ll enjoy stunning vistas of the Urubamba River and the Machu Picchu Valley, as well as local vegetation and animals. Additionally, there are waterfalls and breathtaking views of Machu Picchu Mountain. The path itself contains a few flat stretches as well as a few quick ascents and descents. Additionally, it contains steps that are set up in portions, some of which can be narrow but are not dangerous.

You will have time for a tour with your tour guide once you get at the Wiay Wayna Inca site. The Inca site, temples, waterfalls, gardens, storehouses, watchtowers, and farming terraces will all be open for visitors to explore. Only a little distance separates you from the lunch. There will be time for a little snooze after lunch. After that, it will take you an hour to climb gradually upward and downhill to the Sun Gate, where you can enjoy breathtaking views of Machu Picchu, Huayna Picchu, and the other valleys. The Incas utilized the Sun Gate to see the summer solstice dawn from Machu Picchu. The last hour-long climb will get you to the Machu Picchu ruins.

Once there, you may visit the watchtower area to take beautiful photos of Machu Picchu (without crowds). The 20-minute bus excursion to aguas calientes hotel will follow.

  Day 5: Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu – Cusco

You will have enough time to get ready, have breakfast, and pack your daypacks and duffel bags. To be among the first in line to climb Machu Picchu, we’ll jog 30 minutes to the bus stop (sometimes there is a 20-30 min wait in the line to board the bus). The first buses will leave at 5:30 a.m. and enter Machu Picchu at 6:00 a.m. At the checkpoint, you must have your actual passport with you. Your tour guide will lead you to the ideal location to view the mountains at sunrise (weather permitting). After that, we’ll have a two-hour private guided tour of the interesting history of the Machu Picchu ruins. Additionally, you’ll get free time to discover Machu Picchu by yourself. This is a wonderful time to climb Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain if you have a reservation for one (in the second slot which starts at 10:00 a.m.). For lunch and to board the afternoon train to Ollantaytambo, you must board your bus back down to Aguas Calientes. You will then travel back to Cusco in a private van, where we will drop you off at your accommodation.

We will leave our hotel after breakfast at 5:30 am and head for Machu Picchu (2400m/7874f) by tourist bus. We will arrive at the citadel around 6:00 am. After a guided tour around the archeological site, including information about life and culture of the Incas, you will have enough time to enjoy Machu Picchu and Wayna Picchu (2750m/9022f) on your own. We will leave Aguas Calientes by train either at 2:55 pm. Until then, you will have time to have lunch in one of the nice restaurants. Moreover, you can visit the hot springs in Aguas Calientes to relax a bit.

Amazing trip! One of my mom’s bucket list is to hike the Inca Trail with her 5 grandchildren. It was a challenging but amazing and beautiful trip. Our final trekking group included two other families bring the total to 13 people. Our guides, Robin and his assistant, Jonah, were knowledgeable, patient and attentive with our large group of 8, and made this trek even more special because we were able focus on the beautiful scenery and each others company. They let us know the detail of the day’s hike and in the evening, prep us for the next morning. I caught a cold in Cusco, which made the hike much harder. They offered me some local medicine to help clear my sinus. One of them always stayed behind to make sure everyone gets to the campground. Through out the hike, we stopped at various historical spots, where Robin shared fact so on importance of the site and Incas/Quechua history. Robin even brought a mini espresso for us to have a cup at Dead Woman’s Peak 🥰. I’m glad that we ended up Robin and Jonah as our guide. They made the trek extra memorable and also appreciated how they take care of the porters.

Great trekking experience with lots of insides! We really enjoyed the four day Inka Trail with our fantastic and knowledgeable guide Robinzon! The scenery is just so beautiful and historical and it's great to have somebody telling you about all the big and little things you cross by. I still remember Robinzon showing us how much water is stored in a handful moss, how to shoot with grass and many other things you will get to know on the trip that I don't want to spoil with this! Thank you for making this trip so memorable!

Amazing tour with amazing guide! We are grateful to have met Robinzon. The best guide we had! Robinzon helped us so much to experience Peru in the right way. His professionalism, kindness and knowledge were at the highest level. We enjoyed every moment with him on our Salkantay trekking and in our visit to Machu Picchu. We are sure that when we return to Peru again, we will contact him again and entrust ourselves to his guidance :))

Amazing Salkantay and Ausengate Treks! The team did a great job at tailoring a trip so I could see everything I wanted! The communication while setting up my trip was clear and easy. All of my questions were answered fully and in a quick manner. Robinson is a very knowledgeable guide, speaks great English, always has a positive attitude, and knows the best spots for spectacular views! He really cares about his clients and will do everything to make sure they have a great experience. I had some knee pain after my first trek was having some trouble at Ausengate. Robinson slowed down, allowed me to take my time, and gave me some reassurance.

Robinson is the best! My wife and I could not have loved our trip more. Robinson Gutierrez is unbelievably knowledgeable, unusually patient with us and made us feel encouraged to ask any questions. Most importantly, we unequivocally felt he equally cared about the history of his country and as well as our experience of said beautiful country. I can't stress this enough, he sincerely cares for his group. Our Machu Picchu trip was only one of our experiences on our 5 week long honeymoon throughout all of South America. We were lucky to have really amazing guides in every country however Robinson was different. We wished Robinson could have taken us throughout the entire continent. If you need a guide in Peru, you need to go with Robinson.

The best trip! Robinzon was our guide to Machu Picchu, and we would claim, that the trip through the mountains, were the best part of our 3 month trip in South America! We had so much fun and laughed all the way, even though it was both pouring rain, roasting sun and our legs were tired. Also we didn’t rush at any point. There were lots of time to enjoy the beautiful nature and mountains, and Robinzon had a lot of knowledge about the plants, animals and mountains. We are very happy that we did this trip, and lucky that we got to have fun with Robinzon 🙂

Robinson was extremely knowledgeable, and provided information not only on the geo-ecological make up of the land, but also its history and cultural significance. The beauty of the land, along with that of the spirit and positive energy of the people made this trip one that I'll never forget. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this experience and company to anyone.

A great guide for a great trip I have amazing things to say about my 4d Inca trail hike with Robinson. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the sites we saw along the way, he also gave us so many insights into the cultural world of the native Quechua people and the realties they face in modern Peru. I think he did incredible job at connecting and having fun conversations with us - a group of western tourists. But he also did a great job of slipping powerful stories, histories, and cultural insights into the conversation in a way that was so enriching to the experience. I'd 100% recommend to anyone researching tour companies in the Cusco area! Thanks Robinson!

Great! I booked a trip with this company and for some reason they were unable to guide my friend and I. They made arrangements for us to go with TreXperience instead without any additional cost to us. They also arranged transportation to and from the airport at the start and end of the trip. This included a heroic effort at helping get us to the airport on time whilst making stops for COVID testing after mechanical issues with the train from Aguas Calientes had severe delays. I have high remarks for them.

Amazing 4 days 3 nights trekking experience Easily one of the best teams I've had the pleasure of trekking with. Our guide Robinson was fantastic. He treated us as if we were his family and he ensured a smooth trip during the 4 days we spent as a team. The porters and the food were amazing. Despite some rainy and cloudy days, Robinson made sure our experience was memorable and unique. We did the hike with a group of 8 people and it was clear to everyone that this experience was one of the best we have had in our travels. Your trekking experience is dictated by the people around you. You'll be doing yourself a favor by booking with AltitudeXperience and starting your journey with Robinson as your guide.

12 out of 10, highly recommended! I was lucky enough to have one of the best guides for my first (and hopefully not my last) adventure in Peru: Robinzon! Knowledgeable, fun, patient, experienced, caring, spontaneous, caring, passionate. I could go on and on with the adjectives. From the pre-hike briefing to saying our goodbyes, Robinzon was an absolute joy. He is very knowledgeable and attentive and somehow managed to make the challenging Salkantay trek manageable for a large group of people with different interests and skill levels. He too is personally in awe of the beauty and magic of the Andes, and it is this beauty and magic that he wishes to share with everyone he hosts, for all the adventures he can lead. Thanks for everything Robinson!

Since it was just the two of us, he made sure we had all the necessities and breaks! ! We had a lot of walking and history as Adrian taught us a lot of interesting facts about the Inca culture. As we are both vegans, Adrian made sure that all meals, snacks and drinks met our dietary needs! This was indeed the trip of a lifetime for him and it could not have happened without our exceptional guide! ! Thank you AltitudeXperience and thank you very much Adrian! ! !

Amazing tour guide!!!! I did the lares hike with my mom this July. Our tour guide Robinzon was amazing! ! The entire team we went with made us feel like family and helped make the trip run smoothly. You can tell they went out of their way to make sure we both had a great time. The team had many surprises planned and paid great attention to every detail. The views of the mountains were unforgettable! Everything was so beautiful. It was my first time in the Andes and I would definitely recommend this company and the trek to anyone who wants to experience the culture and ecology first hand! ! ! I loved learning about the history of the Incas and appreciate the opportunities to interact with the locals.

He showed us a part of the Andes Mountains that we would never have seen if it hadn't been for him. Most tourists will not have the privilege of experiencing Peru like we did. It immerses you in the culture. I can't wait to go back. There is absolutely no one else I would want to guide me through this beautiful country than him.

Highly recommended! I couldn't recommend AltitudeXperience and Robinzon highly enough! ! ! I was very impressed with this tour company. They are not only knowledgeable, but also kind and friendly. They were also very helpful in my hiking experience, always willing to help me and my friends. They made this experience so much fun.
