Most of the adventurous travelers, have one particular goal in mind, experience the Peru hiking tours that Peru has to offer; due to is consider one of the most famous in south America, however exists other alternatives routes as fascinating such as, Salkantay (the highest) Lares, Choquequirao ( called the other Machu Picchu).

Anyway, there are a several tours of hiking with inhospitable journeys in the wildest and most unspoiled regions of the Peruvian Andes. The visitors that are avid of live an unforgettable experience, will find a real adventure amongst spectacular Mountains; vast valleys, stunning landscapes, a variety of flora and fauna species (a few of them in danger of extinct) and diverse of colorful orchids around the Sanctuary.

In Peru you will find the Best hiking routes guaranteed!

The Inca Trail is part of a 30 000 Km (18 641.14 miles) highway system, that integrated the great Inca Empire of Tawantinsuyo. Trekking this Incan highway is a fascinating experience, is a truly combination of history, natural beauty and magic, the trail is paved with blocks of stone; it has authentic incan stone stairways, tunnels and wooden bridges; and crosses rivers, imposing mountains, small valleys, warm cloud forests and cold highlands. There are over 250 known species of orchids, numerous birds, animals and reptiles and several species close to extinction.

The inka trail network is closed during February each year.

The Vilcabamba Range offers some of the best trekking in Peru. The mountain chains with their many peaks surround the many Inca roads of the area. This route combines a high altitude trek in the environs of the great Mount Salkantay (20,577.43 feet) and the beautiful valley of the Urubamba Valley, and ends with a link to the last stretch of the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu along a route seldom taken by walkers along the banks of the Urubamba River.

Trekking in this area takes you into the remote and rarely visited Lares Valley with the spectacular backdrop of the Urubamba Mountains, and has several snow-capped peaks, the best know of which is Veronica (5,750m. The Lares Valley lies to the east of the Urubamba range and its easily accessible from Cusco.

The Lares valley is one of the most picturesque villages in the southern part of Cusco. Lares Valley is particularly well know for its very high-quality, brightly coloured weavings and characteristic upturned hats, many of the popular tourist markets being supplied from here. The trek itself is rated moderate, similar to the Inca Trail.

There are, however, one pass over 4000m so it is essential that you are well acclimatized to the altitude.

Situated in the Vilcabamba Range, above the Apurimac canyon, stands CHOQUEQUIRAO that means Cradle of Gold, which was one of the control points for access to the Kingdom of Vilcabamba at the time of the Spanish conquest. Its palaces and temples in two levels, system of fountains, canals and aqueducts and its fantastic land shelves covered by thick vegetation were presumably built during the Inca Pachakuteq government (XV century) This archaeological complex has been compared to Machu Picchu in terms of size, construction and spectacular location (10,203.41 feet above sea level), The site is reached after a two-day trek from the village of Cachora, which is two and a half hours by road from Cusco. It is in Cachora that our muleteers, horses and mules will be waiting for us.

Ausangate is the highest mountain in Cusco, at 6,384 meters, and it is the most emblematic aspect of the region’s geography. This trek takes us around the mountain, beginning at its north face. It is a marvelous 4-day hike passing enormous glaciers and dozens of highland lakes, where we will be able to observe several species of Andean vicuñas.

This program can be concluded in Ollantaytambo to enable participants to continue to Machupicchu.

Available from April to November.
