We have just returned from the Lares Trek with so many beautiful and interesting impressions in our luggage. We can highly recommend the TreXperience team, the trek was perfectly organized (from morning coca tea to hot water bottle in the evening) and the team is passionate about the work. Our two guides, Elisban and Maribel, looked after the group very well, told us a lot about Peruvian culture and history, and created a great atmosphere thanks to their warm and open manner. The food (prepared by Carmelo and Ramon) was just delicious and an experience in itself. Thanks also to the hard-working hands of Mauros and Victors, who took care of everything in the background, so that we could only concentrate on the trek. With every booking through TreXperience you also support social projects - for example, the company was able to set up a library for children. Keep it up, TreXperience!
1 day we are about 2 hours by mini bus to hot springs, there you could swim and there was breakfast. Then 15 minutes by bus to the starting point of the hike. About 1.5 hours until lunch after about 1.5 hours to the camp + dinner. 2 day breakfast about 3 hours to the highest point at 4700m. Down to the next camp about 2 hours. + lunch, siesta, dinner. 3 day breakfast about 2.5 hours down where there was another lunch. Danch with bus to salzminen and after allaytantambo dinner and train aguas calientes hotel overnight (shower). 4 day breakfast bus to Machu Picchu ruins at half past three again with train 1,5 hours back to Ollantaytambo from there by bus to cusco about 3 hours Did a lot of fun, would do the tour again.
An excellent stay that we highly recommend! A team caring, beautiful scenery and all-inclusive service to let yourself be carried and enjoy the stay. The trek of Lares makes it possible to hike in all tranquility (we crossed 2 tourists in 3 days); after a good period of acclimatization, the pace allows even the less athletic to follow easily; nights in a camp make it possible to meet locals without all the bad taste folklore that some tour operators can offer; Finally, the fascinating explanations of the guide allow to learn about the fauna and flora as well as the history of a Perou from the pre-Inca period to the political and social context of our days. A big thank you to the whole team !
The Lares trek has been a physical, emotional and spiritual journey to us. We were travelling as a couple. The landscape was amazing and the guide (Hubert) and his full team were incredible! @TreXperience Cusco you are lucky to have a guide and a cooking team as you have! They were awesome! Important to know for other travelers: It can be super cold during the night. (we had -10 degree Celsius) Take warm things with you and carry or rent a super warm sleeping bag Train a little bit, you should not underestimate the altitude Buy some candies in advance to give some of them to the kids you will meet on the way Service by Trexperience was fantastic. Highly recommended!
I took part in the Lares trek (4 days, including 1 day Machu Picchu) with my son (14) and can join the Trexperience team, namely Guide Carlos with Rosa (cook), Ruven (Porter), Leandro (horse porter) and Vlady Unreservedly recommend (photographer). We were able to enjoy unspoiled nature, we did not meet any other tourist group, we were able to get to know numerous facets of Peruvian culture (visits to remote Andean villages, Peruvian cuisine, shamanic rituals) and we had a perfectly organized crew in which there was always a friendly atmosphere. We would love to come back! Even without Machu Picchu, the Lares Trek is an unforgettable experience!
