5 DAYS ADVENTURE PERU-

AUSANGATE LODGE-TO-LODGE TREK

(Level Moderate to Challenging)

Named after the highest sacred mountain in the Cusco region, the breathtaking 5-day Ausangate lodge-to-lodge trek takes you through some of the most pristine mountain ecosystems in the world accompanied by a caravan of llamas or horses, carrying your gear, owned by the local shepherds proud to share their ancestral land with you. Stay in mountain lodges offering comfortable accommodation, delicious regional meals using local ingredients and even live entertainment with traditional music.

ITINERARY DAY-TO-DAY

1

DAY

CUZCO / CHILLCA

Head along the Vilcanota River to visit the temple of Checacupe, then the upper valley of Pitumarca. At Japura, trek a short distance to Chillca. Be greeted by locals and musicians playing Andean instruments in your first “Andean Lodge”. Enjoy hot showers and full bathrooms as well as tasty local cuisine.

2

DAY

CHILLCA / MACHURACAY

Trek alongside alpacas and llamas in the glacier valley of Phinaya. After a picnic lunch, walk about 5 hours to Machuracay Tambo, while being surrounded by moraine walls, glaciers and lagoons. Your bags will be transported to the next lodge by a llama caravan.

3

DAY

MACHURACAY / ANANTAPATA

Take in your first mountain pass (5,056m) with spectacular panoramic views. Descend alongside the glaciers and hike to Ausangate Cocha Lake for lunch. Here, the landscape dramatically shifts due to the existence of red sandstone formations where you will see vicuñas and sometimes condors. 

4

DAY

ANANTAPATA / HUAMPOCOCHA

Continue to Cerro Laya Grande via massive glacier del Inca, and marvel at the most striking colours in the sediments of Vinicunca or better known as Rainbow Mountain. On your way to the fourth Andean Lodge you may see hundreds of Andean geese nesting in the cliffs of Anta, and the flatiron formations of Apu Labrayani.

5

DAY

HUAMPOCOCHA / CUZCO

Reach the top of your final pass while enjoying a view of the mountains. On your descent, encounter some of the most capricious shapes of limestone formations from the cretaceous age and hike until the end of the trail in Trapiche.
