Welcome to the third and final day of hiking the Lares Trek to Machu Picchu. Catch up on the first two posts here:
Welcome to Day Two of the Lares Trek, the journey to Machu Picchu. Day Two of the Lares Trek is notoriously difficult. You reach an altitude of 4,800 metres, hiking up steep, steep hills, to the peak of a mountain, which can be covered in layers of snow and ice depending on the weather! We had knee-deep snow to battle at some points. It’s a true journey.
Catch up on Day One and a bit of Lares background here.
More than anything, this poa is a long, long gallery of pictures taken very high up in the Andes.
