Lares Trek, Peru

On the Lares Trek

In September 2013, I was fortunate to have the chance to travel to Peru for a couple of weeks.  I wanted to visit Machu Picchu but not the way that most people did so along the Inca Trail.  Didn’t really feel like hiking with too many folks so I decided to join a group (there were only 4 of us plus the guides) to hike what was refer to as the Lares Trek — which would take us into a more remote region and through a mountain pass.
