With arguably the most iconic trek in the world, The Inca Trail and superb alternatives on offer, trekking in Peru is high up the wishlist of most travellers. World Heritage site, Machu Picchu, is situated within fantastic hiking country and whilst most trekkers attempt the iconic Inca Trail, a growing band are rejecting the crowds and opting for the equally stunning Lares Valley trek or Salkantay trek.
The Lares Valley Trek passes through many small Andean villages offering a fascinating cultural insight, whilst The Salkantay Trail takes in the majestic Salkantay peak over the Salkantay Pass at 4600m. If you've seen Machu Picchu, then its sister site Choquiquirao offers a more hidden alternative - inaccessible by bus or train, the site is quieter and lacks the crowds of Machu Picchu.
Away from the Inca Ruins, The Cordillera Blanka features stuiing glacial landscapes with abundant beautiful lagoons and glacial valleys. The scenery rivals the Himalayas and encompasses many of the highest peaks of the Andes.
All our Peru treks are operated by the best responsible local Peruvian guides meaning that more of your money reaches the local economy.
Nothing beats the elation I felt when I reached Machu Picchu after trekking one of the most iconic routes in the world. Believe the hype, the Inca Trail is well worth it. Don't leave it too late to plan your trek, permits sell out fast.

My sister, her boyfriend and I had a fantastic time.
Both guides were excellent, spoke good English and were very knowledgable.
The food was also excellent - some of the best I had during my 4 months in South America!
The taxi arrangements were good and on time to get us started on the first day and overall we had a really great time and would definitely recommend the trip to anyone!
flange reviewing Trek the Inca Trail in Peru
Trekking to Machu Pichu has long been a dream of mine and this was a wonderful way to do it. The guides and porters on our trek took great care of us… reassuring us about the effects of altitude and encouraging us all to walk at our own pace. We were in a group of 12, a good size…large enough to have some interesting chat at dinner but it we never felt crowded when we were walking. The food was fantastic and could easily stand alone as a selling point for the trek. The weather in June was clear although chilly at night…gloves should be high on the kit list.
The trip up the Tambopata river into the jungle is in complete contrast to the heights of the Andes and quite magical. Before we had even got to the lodge the guides had pointed out caiman, capybaras and vultures along the riverbank. The accommodation itself was very comfortable, with a large bar, dining area and very clean comfortable bedrooms. I had been a little nervous about the prospect of sleeping in a room open to the jungle but am now a complete convert, the noises and views into the vegetation were fascinating and best enjoyed from the comfort of a hammock!

We really thought our trip was great. I would rate your service and the whole experience as a 5. The only piece that would make your service more convenient would be if the prices were conveyed in dollars instead of pounds. We would definitely recommend the trip and company to other travelers. We had our own trip for 3 people and were given lots of special attention. The transportation was very easy and all of our needs were met. Thanks so much for arranging everything for us!
Rochelle Loughry reviewing Lares Valley Trek to Machu Picchu
From beginning to end the service from both Tourdust and the local operator was fantastic. Despite being the rainy season we had a fair bit of good weather, and even when we didn't it couldn't take away from the great experience and amazing sites. Our guide Odon really made it for us. There was a smallish group of 8 of us. He understood everyones needs and tailored our days to make sure everyone got the most out of it. Whenever he could he made sure that we were ahead of other groups and got time at the most interesting sites on our own. He also hads fantastic knowledge and always had really interesting things to tell us which made the trip even better. Our team of porters were also fantastic. The food was amazing and you wouldn't believe they were cooking it in a camp tent. Thank you to the whole team for making this such a great trip. I would highly recommend Pachamama if you are thinking of doing the trail. Becks and Will - Jan 2011

I cannot imagine a better guide than Odon. From the very first time we met, he has been funny, kind, supportive, very knowledgeable and a real pleasure to be with. The fact is I was not fit enough to do this like some of the other young fit people, but he made me feel welcome and cared for - a wonderful man and a wonderful experience. Apart from my shame at taking the horse, I have loved almost every minute of this trek and Odon has been the second best part of it - countryside came first :)
