Combining the beauty of the Sacred Valley with archealogical mysteries and bustling markets of Pisac Ollantaytambo and Chincheros with the "living" inca trail trek (Quishuarani to Yanahuara Route) so named for the close contact with the local people and their ancient traditional way of life. The trek takes us into the Lares region of the Peruvian Andes, passing green valleys, tranquil mountain lakes and high passes, with breathtaking views of snow-capped Andean peaks rising to just under 6,000 meters. Our route takes us through many small village communities that offer a rare & fascinating insight into traditional Andean life. Finally we make our way by train to Aguas Calientes and continue on to Machu-Picchu, the legendary Lost City of the Incas. We have plenty of time to explore this renowned and fascinating site, climb to Huayna Picchu, walk to Sun-Gate etc.
