For trekkers who want to do the Inca trail but prefer more of a challenge then the extended Inca trail past Mount Salkantay is perfect. This little trodden route traverses stunning high mountain scenery.
Hikers who want to get off the beaten track and escape to a part of Peru that has changed little over the last 500 years can trek through the spectacular scenery of the Lares Valley. This trek is a unique experience, through a splendid landscape of snow-capped mountains and passing through isolated villages that have preserved their traditional techniques of weaving and dress making.
One of the most interesting but lesser known treks in Peru is the route to Choquequirao. Known as ‘Machu Picchu’s sacred sister’, this vast Inca complex is accessible only by foot and is surrounded by spectacular snow-capped peaks.
