HIDDEN LAKES OF THE ANDES

Here is another from our Sacred Valley Tour in Peru.

It's a fine balance on photography tours between maximising time shooting and getting to the really off the beaten track places. These lakes are in the High Andes around 20km from Machu Pichu. It's not a route that tourists take and getting here is a hard trek. At over 4,500mts (14,800') it's not for the faint hearted but with good preparation and the right guides it's achievable.

For anyone keen to look in to doing a trek here we can arrange this on the back of our Sacred Valley Tour. I have been up here 3 times and know the best guides and the most professional local companies. The one we use for our Machu Pichu visit is particuarly good.

It's a magical place and there is something surreal about reaching somewhere that so few others have seen.
