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.

We walked the self-guided Nakasendo Trail in October coordinated through Oku Japan. Everything was perfect, maps were easy to follow, accommodation was amazing and the scenery and walk was beautiful. The customer service from Oku Japan was above and beyond. We are already thinking about our next trip and will definitely be booking through them again. Well done Oku Japan we had a great time and apologies for not doing a review sooner.

absolutely amazing experience using oku japan for a 4 day kumano kodo trail self-guided tour (november 2016), the attention to detail and organization, the quality of materials, the fabulous experience on the trail and my evenings/mornings at local inns, and also visited the kumano kodo local office and spent some time with the lovely oku japan staff; I did underestimate the rigor of the hike, especially the opening, “passing through the womb” section of the trail, but managed to adjust, and it was a deeply moving, meaningfully, spiritual experience, much gratitude, highly recommended

Just returned from the Nakasendo Trail walking tour. It was fabulous! Our guide, Naomi, was outstanding and Oku Japan was an excellent company to deal with. I highly recommend them and would use them again without reservation.

        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.

        Where Do They Operate?

        As their name suggests, Mountain Lodges of Peru is a Peru based operator, specializing in the countries regions. They operate tours to and from Machu Picchu along two major treks. 

        Why Travel With Them?

        For an integrated travel experience where your experience will introduce you to the indigenous cultures of Peru on a deeper level.
