Enjoy and explore the sacred peak of Ausangate Trek to Rainbow Mountain 4 Days (Ausangate Peak 6372 mt) which is still one of the wild peaks of the Peruvian Andes and also as main lord of the locals from Cusco and ending in the natural multi colors of the Rainbow Mountain in peru (5,020 m / 16,466 ft). even recently ranked by national geographic as one of the best option in Cusco, that way we are lunching our hiking through some isolated communities, in which you may interact with local who are still keeping the culture and traditions alive! Where we have chance to see snow capped peaks around, herds of llamas and alpacas and vicunas, glaciers and turquoise lakes, all set within an incredibly colorful mountain range. The Ausangate Trek Peru is one of the best option on the region and you’ll likely not see another trekker.

Excellent trip, highly recommended for the entire family. The guide was great, full of interesting local facts. The camping experience, including waking upright in the middle of these impressive mountains, was very interesting. The entire experience is very recommended and the price tag seemed very competitive. Thanks to all the staff that care of us during this amazing experience.

David was an artful guide in sharing his love for his country and its rich history. He was able to share a wealth of knowledge with the adults as well as engage our inquisitive and challenging teens. He had an infectious positive energy and made the trip immensely better! We will never forget our amazing by experience and would be happy to host him if he ever visits the Hill Country in Texas!
By Ashley E for 4D Cusco, Sacred Valley & Machu Picchu Experience on Mar 19, 2024
The trip to Machu Picchu was one of the VERY BEST travel/hiking expeditions that I have ever experienced. Period! From START to FINISH, we were treated with expert gentle guidance by our leader (David) that had spent FIVE YEARS in "college" studying the environment; so, yes, expert knowledge and gentle delivery were superb! Every accommodation was spot-on brilliant and a perfect fit for excited travelers to R&R AND just get out and visit. The hike to Machu Picchu proper was nicely challenging. It was a bit challenging in that some of the upsides (hills) are a bit steep, and all are entertainingly narrow with a great view down sans guardrails. In summary, an adventure brilliantly unique hosted by a team in a great location that certainly adds to the brilliance!!
By Jo ann P for Machu Picchu 2 day Hike + Huayna Picchu Mountain on Sep 20, 2023
It has been a tremendous experience: the hike during lush countryside up to the sun gate and down to Machu Picchu is both enjoyable and dramatic. Andean Path's tour arrangement was impeccable with train and bus times such that we were able to enjoy Machu Picchu when the huge crowds were either already gone or not there yet. The pick of accommodation in both Ollantaytambo and Aguas Calientes were good choices. Central to our experience being so positive was our tour guide Ronald. His incredible wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm for the tour made a huge difference. We enjoyed three glorious days.

Let me start by explaining how David went above and beyond to get permits for our trip in the last minute. We called Andean path travel via WhatsApp, one day before of our trip to check if he can accommodate us. He did some magic and got permits for next day. It’s just unbelievable. We did the 2 day short Inca Trail and David was beyond exceptional. His English was excellent, his local knowledge from being from a near by town meant we got a very personal history tour, not only about the Incas, but the local fauna and Flora. His passion was admirable. David made the experience perfect for someone who wants to hike and learn about the history! It was definitely a trip of a lifetime. I highly recommend!
