Lares Valley Trek & Huilloc Homestay

Embark on a beautiful 3 day trek through the Lares Valley ending with a homestay with a local family in a community of the Andes. This is a trek through traditional native communities where you can see how these populations survive & thrive using local resources.

Starting at the Hot Springs of Lares Valley you’ll pitstop for lunch after a fairly long drive from Cusco in the morning. After lunch you follow a trail for about 4 hrs to the first campsite of Huachuasi. Here llamas & horses graze and are kept for many of the farmsteads.

Following on to to Huilloc, you'll overnight with a local family, enjoy their hospitality and traditions. It's a fun and humbling experience to be in the company of such welcoming people. The next day you'll head towards to Ollantaytambo for a guided tour and exploration of the Inca ruins here in this lively mountain town.

  • Lares Valley Trek & Huilloc Homestay: Embark on a beautiful 3 day trek through the Lares Valley.

    Starting at the Hot Springs of Lares Valley you’ll pitstop for lunch after a fairly long drive from Cusco in the morning. After lunch you follow a trail for about 4 hrs to the first campsite of Huachuasi. Here llamas & horses graze and are kept for many of the farmsteads.

    On the second beginning from Huachuasi you’ll head deeper into the valleys of this area and see many traditional quechuan farm practices, whilst also scaling a 4,800m mountain pass. On the descent you’ll pass a mountain lake in Ipsaycocha & descend down to the town of Patacchanta for a lunch.

    Afterwards, from this point you’ll trek to Huilloc; a traditional Andean community where you have the opportunity to enjoy a homestay and some of the local customs. The families love to welcome trekkers and a pachamanca style dinner will often be served (food cooked underground with local herbs and all natural). Overnight here in Huilloc with your family then you’ll continue to Ollantaytambo to explore the ruins the following day.

    Journey back through to Cusco or the Sacred Valley and onwards to Machu Picchu.
