Lovely luxury with a very local twist - it’s not a Hilton. Super friendly staff, good food. We stayed 2 nights in Lamay Lodge & will stay 2 in Huacahuasi Lodge which is significantly more Local in terms of staff. Again not Westin but in a good way. For example it’s at 3800 meters. We are a group of six and they handle groups well.

Returned about one week ago from experiencing the Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu with MLP. The experience was profoundly moving, absolutely beautiful land and people. Enrique was our fearless guide, supported by Gilbert and Jacquline. Not only did they lead us, but they taught us about the environment and people around us. The orchids, the ferns, the hummingbirds, the language and the beautiful Quechuan people of the mountains. Our trekking companions, who were complete strangers to us when we began, became our beloved companions. Each person bloomed in their own way on the trail as we challenged ourselves physically and emotionally. The lodges and food were superb of course. But the land, the people...these are the enduring memories.

I've been on a handful of Safaris in east Africa and my trip with Ian and Kawira was by far the best. The guides were super accommodating and had great stories to tell. Couldn't have chosen a better way to see the gorillas in Rwanda and would recommend Ian and his crew to anyone!

        About Mountain Lodges of Peru

        For more than a decade, Mountain Lodges of Peru have provided in depth cultural experiences for visitors to Peru’s most famous site: Machu Picchu.

        What Makes Them Stand Out?

        They focus solely on bringing travelers to Machu Picchu, on two major treks: Salkantay or the Lares. Truly integrating the local communities of Peru into their missions and activities, they are the perfect choice for supporting local operations and learning about the history and culture of the area from a local perspective.

        Who Travels With Them?

        A trek to Machu Picchu, especially along these two trails, is not for the faint of heart. Treks are between 4 and 7 days, and the altitude can be very challenging for some. But don’t despair! Average builds and physical fitness levels travel to Machu Picchu regularly, and your guides are well trained to help you on your way.
