It’s no exaggeration: Cuzco and the outlying areas are home to some of the most magnificent, breathtaking sites on the planet. Whether you seek a unique twist on a traditional trek or a private back-country journey, get the most out of your time spent on foot. We offer full and multi-day culture treks through Andean pueblos, private alternative treks to Machu Picchu, and an perspective-changing immersion trek over a local mountain higher than any in the continental USA.
Haku Expeditions offers a few different options for trekking. Feel free to ask for a custom trek according to your needs, group, or trek style. We enjoy offering all inclusive treks but also offer backpacker style for the more independent trekker. We won’t send you on the Inca Trail with 500 other people but will send you on remote Inca Trails where tourist rarely go. travel differently.
The most demanding yet rewarding trek of the Cuzco area, this 7 day/6 night epic journey is the crème-de-la-crème of Inca Trails. The trail offers an admittedly taxing hike—steep descents followed by equally severe inclines—but with an outrageous payout: sublime views and visits to the Incan cities of Choquequirao and Machu Picchu. After seven days of magnificent yet demanding trekking, you’ll have explored the haunting ruins of Choquequirao (3000 m), visited the Wonder of the World Machu Picchu, crossed three stunning Andean Valleys and four passes
reaching 4300 m, relaxed in natural thermal baths, and garnered up enough stories for a lifetime. Choquequeriao’s relative inaccessibility makes it a welcome alternative to the swollen tourism of Machu Picchu—there were no (read: ZERO) other trekkers during our visit on July 2. A cable-car is planned for 2018, which will open the gates to an estimated 200,000 visitors per year. Now is the time to visit an undisturbed Choquequirao!

Bathe in the crystal clear waters of Colcolmayo, experience the ruta del cafe by harvesting, roasting, grinding and making you own coffee on a local organic coffee farm, hike on ancient old Inca Trail, visit the ruins of Llactapata and see Machu Picchu from one valley over….alone. Less touristy than your typical marketed Inca Trail.
This Inca Trail will fill you with wonder and awe as you hike alone to the forgotten ruins of Llactapata. See itinerary here. For those with 10 days we highly suggest the Inca Trails to Machu Picchu with both Huchuy Qosqo Trek and Llactapata combined, plus rainbow mountain and more! See itinerary here.
