LAMAY TO PISAQ HIKE
This is one of the most beautiful routes in the heights of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. We will ride to Sapacto, a community in the heights of Lamay, where we will begin our hike.
We will start walking a kind uphill trail before we reach the puna and wetlands. In this unique and important environment, we might find herds of Alpacas, Llamas and sheep, local people doing their farming labors and grazing their cattle. Also, as part of the environment, we will see traditional corals and houses made of stones and straw.
We will cross the lloque pass, and leave Lamay behind, to enter the community of Paru Paru in the district of Pisac, where we start our downhill hike, through picturesque lakes and wetlands, only filled in the rainy season. We will stop for a healthy and delicious lunch made with local and healthy ingredients, and take our time to enjoy the beautiful landscape and outdoors atmosphere.
We retake our hike with amazing views of the Apus, sacred and astonishing mountains, to finally reach the first of the three mythical lakes of Kinsacocha (3 lakes). Walking in this unique ecosystem we will find different species of birds like Huayatas (andean geese), lake gulls, ducks, hummingbirds and maybe hawks and eagles.
It is important to highlight that the local people from the communities, takes care of the trail. We pay a fee that is a support for the sustainable development and nature conservation, from the adventure travel industry.
