Under the shadow of Apu Ausangate, Cusco’s most sacred mountain, walk among villagers and their alpaca herds past glaciers and high alpine lakes, with rarely another trekker in sight.
Ausangate is one of the most breathtaking Andean hikes, with stunning crystalline lakes, soaring peaks and an abundance of wildlife, from llamas and alpacas, to the rare and endangered vicuña.
Trekkers Wanted! Join Ole and his wife in this amazing 5 Days Ausangate trek.
We invite you to meet Ole and his wife to hear about them in their own words:
"Hi, We are a married couple from Norway age 57 and 59. We will travel to Peru for 3-4 weeks. We are fairly experienced trekkers, but not at all in this altitude ! We want to experience a part of the Andes combined with getting the feeling for the traditional culture in the region. We are a bit concerned about the altitude but hope for the best. “

Our Ausangate trek tour begins with an early departure from Cusco. We will drive for three hours in our private transport to the small village of Tinki (3800m / 12,467 ft). Along the way, we pass through beautiful countryside and several traditional villages including Urcos, Ccatcca, and Ocongate.
After lunch in Tinki, the first 3 hours on the Ausangate trail are a wonderful prelude to the magnificent scenery of the Cordillera Vilcanota, with great views of Ausangate Mountain.
From here, we will trek for two hours more until we reach the hot springs at Upis (4400m / 14,432 ft). The hot springs offer fantastic views of Ausangate Mountain at the end of the valley. We will camp here for the night.
