The Lares Valley Trek is a fantastic alternative to the Inca Trail. Created and traversed by the Inca People, this trek is far less commercial than the Inca Trail but the scenery is still as spectacular. You still visit Machu Picchu and you are still able to visit the Inca Trail. The Choquequirao Trek is much longer and goes the ruins of Choquequirao, which mean "cradle of gold" in Quechua. It is commonly referred to as the New Machu Picchu.
