Hardest hike I’ve ever done in my life. It started to snow and hailed at the summit but it was spring. Because of this, we sadly could barely view the mountains colors. The altitude was definitely hard if you are not used to it and was very muddy since it had rained the day before. Overall not my favorite experience of Cusco but probably better for someone more experienced.

Absolutely stunning. Did the trek with my brother last year and we walked from Tinki so the whole thing took us about five days. Overall it was difficult but very rewarding. We encountered few people, but were attacked by dogs twice during the trip. Luckily I’d read about the dogs being aggressive, and we were able to ward them off with our trekking poles when they leaped at us, but it was still an alarming experience. Both times we were on the trail but they were probably just being territorial of the nearby alpaca herds. The trail itself is pretty easy to follow but there are a couple of spots where it vanishes for a short while. The good news is there is an almost constant source of water nearby, so we never had to carry much with us at one time which definitely helped ease some of the weight on our packs. We did the trek in the beginning of July and the weather was great! It didn’t rain at all and only snowed once when we were headed down from the highest peak on the circuit. I highly recommend this trek to anyone looking for a little adventure among a beautiful and varied landscape.

Very fun trail. Hiking down and staying at Llahuar Lodge makes a great jumping off point for other trails

What an experience!!!! I completed the trek in January. Besides our second last day which rained for half the day, it was perfect weather. The trails were pretty well maintained. We had to go off trail as the landslides and avalanches knocked out parts of the trail. I loved walking through all the different types of landscapes. I believe we hiked 90ish kms in 4 days. I would 100% do this again and again if I could

"ln every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks." One of the most amazing experiences in my life, done guided alongside people I had volunteered in a school with prior. Incredible views, amazing high altitude peaks to be in awe of, challenging climbs and a journey that makes you feel like you have truly earned the beauty of Machu Picchu at the end of it. (note: done in Nov 2019)

These beaches are not all that great, the scenery is cool but beaches are rough and some areas are not safe.

Amazing hike. Should be on everyone's bucket list. Went in November, few hours of drizzle each day but otherwise not too bad, cold at night and warm during the day. Loved every second of it.

Did this trail in November. Definitely pack for cold and rainy (hail) weather if you decide to go during this time. The views were amazing. If you're visiting and are not used to the elevation, stay at least 3 days in the city before your trip to give your body time to adjust. Other than that, pack lightly, stay on the trail and enjoy!

Most difficult hike I've completed! Very friendly people, beautiful hike- I got altitude sickness on the way back down. Coca leaves don't help.

Definitely hike the mountain first aka inca stair master. It's paved all the way and exposed to sunlight, but so bring plenty of water, and no bathrooms as well. Enjoy lunch and make you're way back to explore the rest of the site. You can by the time you're done, and all crowds will have left, and but if you take too long some areas may be closed off already.

I hiked this in March. Was a hard hike because of how high the altitude was . The majority of the hike wasn’t as steep until you get to the bottom of the summit and that’s where it becomes challenging. But worth it.

Awesome trail with amazing views. I was not in the best condition during this hike and managed to get to the top without paying the 60 soles for a horse ride. Although the elevation makes it difficult, you will be rewarded with beautiful views and a sense of accomplishment when you reach the top!

Steep Hike with switchbacks, but definitely worth the view at the end. Could be very busy with the day trip crowds, so if you are there during early morning of anytime afternoon to evening you'll have the place practically to yourself. There is a store at the village if you'd like to stock up on snacks and food before making your way to the lake.

Hiking

This was my first trekking trip and the views are amazing! Definitely take time to acclimate to the altitude nearby before starting this journey. I went with the guided tour with friends and was fortunate to have porters and a cook, so my experience is somewhat different than having to carry 10 days worth of gear/food. You can rent everything in Huaraz before starting your trek instead of having to buy them beforehand. I would avoid going during rainy season, I went in June of 2019 and it rained/hailed for 2 days during my trip. Happy Trekking!
