Lamay Lodge and Huacahuasi Lodge are owned and run by Mountain Lodges of Peru who operate the Lares Cultural Trek. They are similar in terms of facilities and share certain design features, too. They provide comfortable accommodation, nourishing food and attentive service, all very welcome after a day spent trekking in the mountains.
The lodges are located at strategic and scenic locations along the Lares Trail and have been designed and built to fit into the environment. They are largely constructed of natural materials such as stone, wood and straw.
Bedrooms are spacious and light, and the en-suite bathrooms have hot and cold running water plus a selection of toiletries. Thereâ€™s a handy drying line in each bathroom, too. A limited number of hairdryers is available. Each lodge has a lounge complete with a roaring open fire, a bar and dining room where nutritious, freshly prepared meals are eaten communally. Picture windows serve dual functions, ensuring rooms and light and letting you enjoy the mountain panoramas. There is either an outdoor terrace or barbecue area at each lodge for al fresco refreshments. Massage services are offered and each lodge has an outdoor Jacuzzi, for that special indulgent, and well-earned, treat.
NB A third lodge is scheduled to open in the autumn of 2015, at Patacancha, and will also be used in the Lares Cultural Trek.
Trek across mountain passes, see life in rural villages, stay in lovely lodges and experience the thrill of that first sight of Machu Picchu.
