Our Luxury inca trail trek 2d/1n all inclusive package combines luxury service with adventure. This trip includes everything you can imagine along the trail taking care of all your comfort and convenience. The Inca Trail is one of the best new treks of whole world. Lares Trek to Machu Picchu offers a comprehensive guide to enjoy an unforgettable experience hiking the trail This trek is often known as “the two day Inca Trail”, “the Sacred Inca Trail” or the “Camino Real de los Incas”. The trek starts at Km104 (104 kilometres along the railway from Cusco) and involves a four hour walk uphill to Wiñay Wayna and a couple of hours further to Machu Picchu making it ideal for trekkers wanting to experience at least a part of the Inca Trail but haven’t got the time (or energy) to complete the full 4 day trek. This itinerary is rated moderate and should only be undertaken by people who are fairly fit and take regular exercise. The trek starts at 2100m (KM104) and climbs to 2700m (Wiñay Wayna) before descending to 2400m (Machu Picchu). Since the trek is carried out at a much lower altitude than the Classic 4 day Inca Trail trek you do not need to worry about acclimatization as much, although many people still find themselves short of breath when arriving at Wiñay Wayna so this trek should certainly not be considered an easy option.
Guides with Deep Knowledge: Our guides aren’t just trail experts – they’re historians, botanists, and birdwatchers, all rolled into one. They’ll unveil the secrets of the ancient Incas, introduce you to rare plant species, and help you spot elusive birds you might not find anywhere else.
Unique Flora Encounters: The Andes are home to thousands of plant species, many of which are found nowhere else on Earth. Discover the medicinal uses of the native plants, or simply admire their beauty.
Birdwatcher’s Paradise: The region boasts a remarkable variety of avian species. From the vibrant Andean Cock-of-the-Rock to the elusive Giant Hummingbird, there’s no shortage of feathered wonders to capture your imagination.
Luxury at Every Step: Our 5D/4N journey ensures you don’t compromise on comfort. After a day of exploration, retreat to the best accommodations available, dine on gourmet meals prepared by top chefs, and wake up to breathtaking views from your room.

TIPS FOR OUR PORTERS
IMPORTANT: Some of the reasons that our price may be higher than that of other agencies are the following:
We ALWAYS book the maximum number of porters possible (according to Inca Trail regulations) so that our porters
are not overloaded.
Also, We are the only travel operator in Peru that supplies porters with proper tents, sleeping pads and
adequate food for this type of activity.
We always we take care our hosremans and horses during our alternative treks so tiping it will be the seim as
for the porters
Beware of this when booking they might be cheaper because of this!
2 people (minimum group size) should have a maximum of 7 porters and 16 people (max group size) should have 22
** Tips for porters, cooks or guides are optional and are NOT included in our price. However our advice is that
you tip our staff based on their performance, service and knowledge. Our guidelines for tipping our staff is the
Each porter gets 100 Soles, each assistant cook 150 Soles, the Main Chef gets 300 Soles.make sure to tip more if
your trip it is more than 5 days or if it is luxury treks
Assistant Tour guides can be tipped collectively by the members of the group, we suggest a 5% of the total cost
of the tour.
Main guides are tipped on a one on one basis and based on their performance. Tour guides are professional people
who spend a lot of time training in different other fields such archaelogy, history and WFA. We suggest people
to consider tipping our guide a 10% to 15% of the value of your tour.

amount of tour is paid. The earliest train you could take is the 2:55 PM and the 9:20 PM being the last train
