About this trip

We look for the most photogenic places so our visitors always have a unique view each day. This experience will show us lagoons with different colors, green valleys, mountain sides with different hues, and meandering rivers. Our adventure begins in La Laguna Roja, on the slopes of Ausangate, which, depending on the season, becomes more stained. The tour of lakes and red hills continues the next day. Sunrise in the mountains of Vinicunca is priceless, especially with a cup of hot Coca Leaves tea or coffee and no people in the background of your picture.
