Llamas in Lares

Peru - The Sacred Valley
25 images

The Lares Trek is the most recent alternative to the Inca Trail, taking in the scenic altitudes north of Olantaytambo. It doesn't walk you into Machu Picchu with dawn views of the Sun Gate, but it does get you amongst the rugged ranges of the Andes to meet remote villagers and their farms. Trekkers can expect all the llamas you could ever want and maybe a few you didn't.

Behind The Scenes

These images were taken during a brochure shoot for GAP Adventures. Read the full story on trekking the Lares Ranges and discover why the llamas in the Sacred Valley are so groovy. "Llamas may be hairy beasts that smell funny and have very bad manners, but in Peru this combination makes you pretty popular."

"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
