Lares is one of the districts of Calca Province. It is only an hour from the town of Calca by car. Many people prefer to walk to Lares, especially along the Inca road, in order to submerge themselves in nature’s enchantment and breathe the fresh and pure air of the mountains. It is amazing to arrive at the pass, from which you can see the snow-covered peaks of the high Andes. They hold you and enchant you.

Besides being medicinal, the warm waters in modern pools by the side of the river is just a delight. There are four pools with different temperatures from which you can choose where to immerse your self and just enjoy the water.
