      About this trip

      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. “

      5 stars We were very well taken care of. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Besides of course seeing Macchu Pichu, we also visited several amazing archeological sites. The food and accommodations were excellent. I highly recommend APUS Tours for this trip.

      Trotz nasser 1. Nacht und 2. Tag war der 3 tägige Lares Trek ein Eindrückliches Erlebnis. Der Reiseführer war flexibel, hatte grosse Kenntnisse. Der Koch war eine Klasse für sich. Das ganze Team, mit den Pferdeführern, war sehr aufmerksam, hilfsbereit und freundlich. Schade, dass wir nie Sicht auf die hohen Berge hatten. Unglaublich für uns, wie in dieser Gegend noch mit einfachsten Mitteln, auch von jungen Leuten, gearbeitet wird.

      This was an amazing experience! My sister and I did the five day salkantay trek. It was a challenge, physically. We were able to see everything from crystal clear Hunantay lake to glacier mountains to rain forest and of course, Machu Picchu . Our guide, William, got us where we needed to be with informative commentary along the way. He also answered our questions along the way. Leonardo cooked us delicious meals along the way with the food and provisions that fit on the mules. Everyone was friendly and encouraging!

      Arturo knew a lot about Machu Picchu. He was fun to be around and always made sure the pace was comfortable for us. It was a really amazing experience.
