This Moon Temple trek is a good alternative to the Inca Trail, taking in some remote Inca ruins and many stunning mountain views on the way to Machu Picchu.

This trek is truly off the beaten track. For anyone wishing to see remote Inca sites, get away from other trekkers and to experience the beauty and rich culture of the Andes this is a perfect option. This is the best trekking.

After visiting the traditional village of Chincheros with a tour of its impressive Inca terracess and carved boulders we pass through the rich farming plain of Anta and stop to explore the beautiful Inca temple - Quillarumiyoc (Moon Temple). We then set off on our trek. We traverse mountain peaks, crossing high passes with scenic views of glaciers and valleys, dotted with Inca sites. 

Visit Machu Picchu ruins

This superb trek offers a different view of Andean landscapes and Andean life and a journey into an area of outstanding natural beauty.

A one day tour to Machu Picchu is included at the end of this trek allowing you to explore this magical Lost City of the Incas.

We have many other treks in Peru, or extend your trip with a visit to the Amazon.

Please contact the office for more information on tailor made and group tours.
