Some of the most popular treks in Peru go to Machu Picchu. But did you know there are some other treks in and around Cusco that also take you to incredible off the beaten path locations?
If you are looking for day treks out of Cusco we recommend the Laguna Humantay Trek. You also have Huchuy Qosqo Trek which takes you to the ruins of an important Inca settlement which remains as one of the best preserved.
For those who love nature then the Ausangate Trek is for you. This hike takes you to the glaciers of Ausangate to experience the full wonder of the Andes. Finally there is Choquequirao which is a sister site to Machu Picchu and can only be reached via a challenging hike. It’s well worth the effort, asid from visiting the impressive ruins you can also see Machu Picchu in the distance!
For any Cusco Trek don’t forget to buy yourselves a great pair of all terrain waterproof hiking boots so you protect your feet and have the overall best experience hiking.
