At 5:00 am, departing from Cusco and on the way to the Sacred Valley Pisac & Calca and then to Lares located in the southern part of Cusco. Along the way, we will pass so many indigenous building small houses and enjoy the beautiful landscape.
The Lares valley is one of the most picturesque villages in the southern part of Cusco. Lares Valley is particularly well known for its very high-quality, brightly colored weavings and characteristic upturned hats, many of the popular tourist markets being supplied from here. Although in this area the most of the Andean people speak Quechua which is their maternal language…Our fantastic team who are working hard to make their dreams true.
Passing the highest mountain over 4,462 meter about sea level , crossing green valleys, tranquil mountain lakes and high passes, with breathtaking views of snow-capped Andean peaks rising to just under 6,000 meters. Our route takes us through many small village communities that offer a rare & fascinating insight into traditional Andean life..Arrival to Lares , located over 3,250 meter about sea level with 11,231 of population.
We had a nice breakfast with rice and fried eggs and the delicious coffee after 4 hours of journey. Continuing with our fascinating trip to the small village of Cachin .On the way , we will pass a couple of villages and bridges made of wood. Before our arrival, we will have a rocky road and muddy.
Arrival to Cachin located over 3,500 meter about sea level so basically this colorful community is covered by huge mountains with beautiful landscape, recently this village is famous due that the company of beer Cusqueña from Cusco made a great promotion with their traditional textile so the people can enjoy in any local TV.
