The Lares trek to Machu Picchu is a similar trek and grade to the Inca Trail trek and also has one challenging high pass. Although there are several different routes that you can take to do this hike, Local Trekkers Peru offer you a 4 day/3 night hike which includes 2 nights of camping and 1 night in a hotel in Aguas Calientes before visiting Machu Picchu on the last day. This a great alternative to the Inca Trail, since trekkers get to experience the local life and pass through untouched Andean villages where the residents still wear traditional clothing, speak the native language Quechua, and make a living by farming the land. As you keep hiking, you will get to see farmers with their alpacas, llamas, and sheep, as well as local children dressed in colorful red ponchos. Next you reach the town of Patacancha which is at the bottom of the valley. Local trekkers peru, offers you the best service to know these places, and to make the route that our ancestors “the Incas” did to arrive at the majestic citadel of Machupicchu Local Trekkers Peru will make your Trek unforgettable.

According to our experience a certain percentage of reservations are canceled by the client before starting the program due to unforeseen circumstances. The penalties for cancellations is detailed below.

For the Inca Trail Classic: Due the regulations of the Inca Trail are very strict, if you or someone in your group wishes to cancel the Inca Trail reservation, you will haveto pay a penalty of 60% of the total price. For example the cost for the Inca Trail based in 2 people is 650 $ per person, so the 60% = 390 $ if you sent a deposit of 200 $ the penalty will be 390 $ – 200 = 190 $

For the Inca Trail 2D/1N: Due the regulations of the Inca Trail are very stricts and we need to get all the necesary things very well booked in advance. If someone in your group decide to cancel this Inca Trail, he or her has to pay the total amount of the Price of the Trek if not the other members of the group are obliged to pay the total price of the trek for the person who will cancel this trek.

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.
