From traditional Andean dishes to modern Peruvian delights, the combination of the Lares Trek and the Short Inca Trail for 5 days with a hotel stay promises a gastronomic journey that will leave taste buds and hearts equally delighted.

  • Exploring Andean Gastronomy on the Lares Trek

The Lares Trek takes hikers through remote Andean villages, where trekkers have the chance to immerse themselves in the local culture and enjoy the authentic flavors of traditional Andean cuisine. As you journey through the picturesque Lares Valley, you’ll be treated to hearty and nourishing meals prepared by skilled cooks using fresh and locally sourced ingredients. Meals often include comforting soups like “chairo” and “quinoa,” savory stews infused with herbs and spices, and delectable roasted meats.

One of the highlights of the Lares Trek is the opportunity to participate in a traditional “Pachamanca” feast. This ancient Andean cooking technique involves burying food, such as potatoes, meats, and vegetables, beneath hot stones, resulting in a flavorful and aromatic meal that pays homage to the earth’s bounty. Sharing in this communal dining experience with fellow trekkers and locals fosters a sense of camaraderie and connection to the Andean culture.

  • Delights of the Short Inca Trail with Hotel Stay

The Short Inca Trail, complemented by the comfort of a hotel stay, allows trekkers to enjoy the best of both worlds – adventure and relaxation. Upon reaching Machu Picchu’s Sun Gate and witnessing the sunrise over the ancient citadel, trekkers descend to the town of Aguas Calientes, where they can unwind and savor the delightful culinary offerings in cozy restaurants and cafes.

  • Culinary Fusion: The Intersection of Tradition and Innovation

Throughout the Lares Trek and the Short Inca Trail for 2 days, trekkers will experience a culinary fusion that blends traditional Andean recipes with contemporary techniques and flavors. The skilled chefs accompanying the trek ensure that every meal is a delightful surprise, presenting dishes that celebrate Peru’s culinary heritage while incorporating modern touches that appeal to the adventurous palate.
