Enjoy a cultural experience as you trek along the Lares route to reach Machu Picchu with amazing views of snowy Andes mountains. The distinguishing feature of this trek is the opportunity it gives you to experience local life in remote Quechua mountain communities where the shy locals still wear their traditional clothing and live the way their ancestor have for centuries. You will gain a new appreciation for their humble way of life which is still very much connected to nature and their original culture. End your one-of-a-kind trekking experience at the spectacular Machu Picchu archaeological site and then return to Cuzco.

Where you'll be
Bamba Cuzco Office
Bamba was founded by genuine travelers who had the desire to enable others to see the world through a unique lens. We do this by curating off the beaten path adventures, disconnecting you from your daily routine to focus more on enjoying the now and ultimately by giving back. We have been working very closely with local communities for over 12 years in order to attract the best local talent to join our team as guides, porters and cooks. We proudly give back to their communities through charitable service projects. Also, for every trip that you book with us, we plant one tree on your behalf, so we can all say "thank you" to our planet for the experiences it has given us. In Peru, your hosts will be Cuzco locals and their names are: Percy Gonza, Diego Choque, Junior Zambrano, Francisco Sacuri, Vidal Gamboa, William Wayacon.
