Day 01

CUSCO – LARES – HUACAWASI

Our journey begins with an early departure at 6:00 a.m. heading towards Lares (located 3 hours by car from Cusco), a charming destination situated at 3,100 meters above sea level. Here, we will enjoy a nutritious breakfast, followed by a relaxing time at the renowned Lares hot springs, known for their therapeutic properties. Later, we embark on a approximately four-hour hike to our campsite in Huacawasi, located at 3,900 meters. This route offers us a unique experience, immersing ourselves in the stunning landscapes of the Andes and providing the opportunity to interact with local communities and their rich culture.

After replenishing our energy with a hearty breakfast, we prepare for the most challenging day of our expedition. The 8-hour journey takes us to the highest point of our route, Abra Ipsay, located at 4,490 meters above sea level. This segment of the hike is a deep dive into Andean lifestyle, offering unparalleled opportunities to observe and photograph the diverse local fauna, including alpacas, llamas, vizcachas, and, with luck, the majestic condor.

Upon reaching Ollantaytambo, we will enjoy lunch before boarding the train that will take us to Aguas Calientes. This train journey is an incredible experience, surrounded by beautiful landscapes and mountains of the Peruvian highlands.

After approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes, we will arrive at the town of Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu Pueblo), where we can explore, rest, and prepare for the next day (The visit to the Wonder of the World - Machu Picchu).
