The Trek from Lares to Machu Picchu is a bit equal to the Inca Trail hike but with more living culture intact and also has a challenging high pass, although there are many different routes you can take to make this hike. Local Trekkers Peru offers you a 4-day and 3-night hike that includes 2 nights of Camping and 1 night in a hotel in Aguas Calientes before visiting Machu Picchu on the last day.
This is a great alternative route and something different from the Inca Trail, as you can experience local life and cross intact Andean villages where residents still wear traditional clothing, retain the Quechua native language and earn a living cultivating the land. In each step we take, we can see the farmers with their alpacas, llamas and sheep, as well as children dressed in colorful red ponchos. We offers the best service to know these places, and make of this route an unforgettable experience until you reach the citadel of Machu Picchu.

For example the cost for the Inca Trail 2D/1N based in 2 people is 500 $ per person, so the 60% = 300 $ if you sent a deposit of 200 $ the penalty will be 300 $ – 200 = 100 $For Alternative Treks: If you or someone in your group wishes to cancel any alternative trek, you have to pay a penalty of 50% of the total price. For example the cost for the Salkantay Trek based in 2 people is 450 $ per person, so the 50% = 225 $ if you sent a deposit of 150 $ the penalty will be 225 $ – 150 = 75 $ For Peru Packages: If you or someone in your group wishes to cancel any Peru Package, you have to pay a penalty of 50% of the total price. For example if some Peru Package based in 2 people cost 1500 $ per person, so the 50% = 750 $ if you sent a deposit of 40% of the total price in this case will be 600 $ so the penalty will be 750 $ – 600 = 150 $ For any other Tour or Program: If you or someone in your group wishes to cancel any other tour or program, you have to pay a penalty of 50% of the total price. For example the Machu Picchu by Train 2D/1N based in 2 people cost 480 $ per person, so the 50% = 240 $ if you sent a deposit of 150 $ so the penalty will be 240 $ – 150 = 90 $ Note: you have until 15 days before the start date of your tour to make any type of cancellation mentioned above. after 15 days if you wish to make any type of cancellation of your tour you will have to pay the total price of the tour, trek or program booked and you have no right to any kind of refund.
