hakuEcotourism Hikes in the Chicón Valley near Urubamba, Peru

Haku Trek offers three different guided tours of the Chicón valley, just northeast of Urubamba in the Sacred Valley. Situated between 3,300 meters and 5,300 meters above sea level, Chicón provides a unique panoramic view of the native forests and the glacier of Chicón.

Hikers can chose to hike to a gorgeous waterfall, through wide Andean meadow, or take an overnight hike to the pristine Chicón glacier. Local guides lead hikers along the trail as they indicate rare indigenous plants and animals and teach about the unique history and culture of Chicón.

An overnight stay in the EcoLodge at the base of the three trails is also available. Here, surrounded by 360 degrees of natural beauty, hikers can spend the night at a comfortable, convenient location before or after their hikes, while enjoying traditional Peruvian food and experiencing the rich culture of the Sacred Valley. For more information about trek and EcoLodge options, visit the Trek Info page.

All employees of Haku Trek, including guides and cooks, are native members of the San Isidro de Chicón community. Haku Trek partners with the NGO ProPeru as part of a larger eco-tourism project whose goal is to promote environmentally sustainable economic development in rural mountain communities in the Sacred Valley. Unfortunately, the native queuñal forests are an obvious source of firewood for the inhabitants of high altitude villages like Chicón, making them some of the most endangered areas in the Andes.

Haku Trek hopes to halt this deforestation by providing an alternate income source for the inhabitants of Chicón. Additionally, all profits generated from Haku Trek go toward the reforestation of the Chicón valley and its queuñal forests as well as other community projects. For more information about the aspirations of Haku Trek, visit our mission page.

Come enjoy all that Chicón has to offer. Book a trek today!
