SPEAK WITH A TRAVEL SPECIALIST

ORANGE NATION is the only tour operator with its own scenic and cultural trek routes, that TREKS COMPLETELY OFF THE BEATEN PATH with the LARES TREK TO MACHU PICCHU. You will pass through the most isolated, indigenous communities which are keeping the Inca culture alive, and get the privilege to interact with them. Our own unique route is incredibly picturesque, with majestic ice glaciers, shockingly blue lakes, waterfalls, llamas, and alpacas. We are the only tour operator that includes the PISAC INCA RUINS on top of the Lares Trek to Machu Picchu. Due to lack of time the 3 day Lares Trek is unable to visit the Lares Hot Springs which is possible on the 4 day Lares Trek.

Day 1: Cusco – Pisac– Huaran – Cancha Cancha

Wake early for your pickup at 5:00am for your Lares trek to Machu Picchu whether you are in Cusco or Sacred Valley. Within the hour, we will arrive to Huaran where you will meet with your trekking team.

Breakfast is served high above looking down at the deep gorges and awesome views of the Inca city and valleys. Time to give our duffels to the horsemen, get out boots on, and begin our first 3 hours, gradually ascending up to Cancha Cancha. There, we replenish our energy for our trek ahead with a yummy lunch prepared by our personal chef. Cancha Cancha, is one of the most isolated and self sustainable communities – traditional through and through, has no road to it and only recently got electricity. Reestablish your connection with nature and the authenticity of Andean life with the locals as they share their homes with us. It would be greatly appreciated if you could share some toys, old useful clothes, notebooks, fruit or any other items with the villagers. Two hours later, we have completed our first day of trekking and arrive at our campsite. Boots off, time to enjoy some tea or coffee with amazing views of the frozen Andean peaks. After dinner, our guide will teach you the Inca Constellations, which they depended on for their agricultural guidance and still do to this present day.

  • Meals: Breakfast – Lunch – Afternoon Tea Time – Dinner
  • Accommodation: Camping facilities 
  • Distance: 12kms / 7 miles
  • Time: 6hrs approximately
  • Difficulty: Moderate 

Day 2: Cancha Cancha – Quishuarani – Ollantaytambo – Aguas Calientes

Feeling excited for our second day and having had a scrumptious breakfast, we begin our 4 hour hike northeast, a challenging trek, passing over three high passes to the highest point called Pachacutec Pass at 4,700 m /15,420 ft.  This is the time to pat yourself on the back and embrace the feeling of achievement for reaching the summit! Rewarding you for the tough trek are the views of the ancient glaciers, shockingly blue lakes, llamas, alpacas and rugged valleys.  After a time to enjoy the 360º views, we descend for an hour, having lunch by the mirrored glacial lake, with picturesque views of the Lares Valley with plenty of llamas and alpacas. After a siesta time, we descend for 2 hours until we reach our campsite located by the Kiswarani community. (3,700 m/12,139ft). Taking the less trodden routes to Machu Picchu, llama herders are readily seen and the local indigenous people will open their hearts and interact with you in the Quechua language (Inca language). Your guide will act as your interpreter to translate and teach you some Quechua language and then you get to enjoy the stunning waterfall. Finally, we arrive to Kiswany, take our transportation for 2 hours to Ollantaytambo and then the train to Aguas Calientes, where we spend the night in a hotel.

DAY 3: AGUAS CALIENTES – MACHU PICCHU – CUSCO

After an early breakfast at your hotel, we are ready to get an early bus at 5:30am up to Machu Picchu just in time to witness the sunrise. It is a truly mystical site out of history and not something you’ll want to miss! After enjoying the sunrise your guide will provide a guided tour of Machu Picchu, which takes around two hours. You will see many of the most important parts of Machu Picchu Citadel during your tour. 

After the tour, those people that have booked in advance for the extra hike up Huayna Picchu will have time to hike it on their own. When they have had their fill of the incredible views of Machu Picchu, a bus back down to Aguas Calientes will be waiting. Upon arriving at Aguas Calientes lunch is waiting with numerous restaurants to choose from (lunch not included). Depending on your train departure time, there may be some time for shopping, or sightseeing.

The Expedition train will take you back to Ollantaytambo at 2:55pm or 3:20pm, following the spectacular Urubamba River. Close to Aguas Calientes, the canyon is narrow and the river has many beautiful sections of whitewater.

WHAT IS THE WEATHER LIKE ON THE 3 DAY LARES  TREK TO MACHU PICCHU?

The weather is very unpredictable and it’s difficult to foresee. You will have many different seasons as you pass through the numerous microclimates and will depend on the location.

The climate in Cusco has a temperature fluctuating between 14 º to 16 º C, with warm days and cold nights. The best time to do the Inca trail is between the months of April through October, when the weather is warm. During the months of June, July and August nights are very cold which is why you are advised to bring a good quality 4 season sleeping bag.

The rainy season is during the months of November through March, if you want to do the 3 day Lares trek to Machu Picchu this season has to bring warm clothes and be prepared, as the walk can be a bit more difficult, on the other hand, enjoy sight of a beautiful landscape and colorful flowers.

  • The average weather conditions on the trek:
  • Dry season April – October
  • Day temperature 20ºC – 25ºC – Night temperature -1ºC – 7ºC
  • Wet season November – March

Great Tour, Team and Guide Pretty much a perfect experience that far exceeded expectations. The porters were excellent & friendly with great service. The quality of the meals (3 courses while on a mountaintop) were better than most restaurants. Our guide Koko was perfect. He knew about all subjects but also let us dictate the journey. Most importantly he gave great insight to the cultural & spiritual aspects of the Inca. We all were really happy and noticed that the trip became personalized for our small & fast group rather than being a forced template. Can’t recommend enough! 💙

ORANGE NATION / Sam travel / Jhony We did the 4 day Inca Trail with tour guide Jhony to Machu Picchu, and I couldn’t have had a better experience. His knowledge of the ruins along the trial and his experience in my Opinion is unmatched. This tour was one of the best experiences of my life. Not only was his expertise helpful but I consider him to be a new friend of mine. I would take any hike or Tavel experience with this gentleman again. 10/10 experience with this entire crew and would book again with Orange nation in an instant. Jhony was amazing. If you’re looking for an amazing experience and a guide who is knowledgeable, book with Orange nation and tour guide Jhony.

Experience of a lifetime We did the traditional 4 day Inca trail hike & it exceeded our already high expectations. Our guide Jhony was super knowledgeable and friendly and helped to create a bond between our group from the very beginning. The food was incredible and varied & their were plenty of little touches that made our trip even more special. It was my first multi day hike and although it was challenging, sam travel / orange nation made the journey as comfortable, relaxing, and fun as possible. Highly recommend!!

Awesome Experience Orange Nation did an excellent job of covering all of the details of my daughter and my 2 day trek on August 5&6, 2021 for what we felt was an affordable price. Our Andean guide, Liz, spoke English well and was informative in explaining historical, cultural and spiritual aspects of the ancient native people. We were inspired and awestruck by the the beauty of this trek! HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Inolvidable Lares Trek ¡Pero que feliz me siento..! Una de los momentos más inolvidable en mi vida fue en el Tour de Lares Trek ,gracias a la recomendación de algunos amigos que ya habían tenido la experiencia de viajar con Orange Nation. Y si…! Orange Nation fue muy responsable desde mi recojo para el Tour , siempre mostraron ese profesionalismo que mis amigos me contaron y también me di cuenta de eso, como también el gran equipo que nos acompañó en el tour , Nuestro cocinero fue el mejor , preparaba la mejor comida que jamás había probado antes. Y el Guía quien fue muy divertido durante todo el camino hasta el fin del viaje, siempre estaba al pendiente de nosotros y eso me hacía sentir feliz. Pase momentos únicos que aún no puedo olvidarlos y cada vez que lo recuerdo me siento feliz, la experiencia con Orange Nation es la razón de todo eso. Me brindaron un gran servicio que no lo había esperado, pero me sorprendieron. Son los mejores, ¡súper recomiendo!

El Mejor Viaje Mi familia y Yo realizamos un pequeño viaje a Perú (Cusco) donde teníamos planeado visitar y sentir esa magnífica felicidad de estar en una de las maravillas del mundo “Machu Picchu”. Pues no fue fácil, ya que primero tuvimos que sentirnos bien con la altura ya que le afecto un poco a mi Esposa, pero eso no fue un problema para que se lleve a cabo nuestros planes. Por suerte encontramos a Orange Nation, una Agencia muy profesional y sobretodo responsable. Orange Nation se encargó de todo para que mi viaje sea el mejor, nos ofrecieron el tour de (Cusco- Machu Picchu) de dos días. Me encantó la idea ya que no nos sentíamos muy bien así que el primer día visitamos el Famoso Valle Sagrado de los Incas, un Lugar muy tranquilo y lleno de tradición donde podrás contemplar la naturaleza y también hermosas vistas de los diferentes pueblos que se encuentran en el camino. Nuestro Guía fue el mejor, durante todo el viaje fue muy profesional y cuidadoso, siempre cuidaba de nosotros y eso nos hacía sentir seguros. El segundo día fue el mejor, por fin pudimos estar en la Maravilla del Mundo “Machu Picchu” nos sentimos súper felices y muy emocionados, al fin pudimos cumplir uno de nuestro grandes sueños, pero también me siento muy feliz por haber elegido a Orange Nation. Nos sentimos muy agradecidos con ellos por el excelente servicio que nos dio y solo hay una palabra para eso “profesionalismo” y ellos lo tienen,solo decir una vez más Gracias. Súper recomendado.

Next, we will enjoy the radiant colors of the recently discovered Rainbow Mountain, hiking through some secluded communities, in which you may interact with the indigenous people who are still holding onto their traditional culture. You will find yourself surrounded by snow-capped peaks, herds of llamas, glaciers and blue lakes, all set within a breathtaking colorful mountain range. The Rainbow Mountain trek has different types of wildlife such as condors and Cara Cara falcons. The colorful sandstone mountains in the Vinicunca area are probably the most unique and coolest thing you will ever see!
