Ausangate – 5 days


travel date

This trekking is for people willing to do the classical Ausangate trekking. During this trekking, we’ll go over 5000 two times. We’ll see so many different lagoons on the route, dozens of 6000m peaks and the Quechua culture which is still very present in this area of Cuzco. You don’t want to miss this adventure on a trip to Peru!

Ausangate Trekking – 5 Days

Day 1 : Cuzco – Tinqui – Upis Alto (4400m)

Early in the morning, we leave Cuzco on a local bus for a 3 hours drive. After the meeting with our muleteer and cook, we’ll start hiking until the Upis community. We’ll arrive there after 4 hours and a height elevation of 500m. The view on the Ausangate mountain is spectacular. Depending on your shape and on the time, either we relax in the hot springs or we keep going further up to a laguna, very close to the glaciers of Ausangate mountain.

Day 2 : Upis Alto – Laguna Ausangate (4700m)

This morning, we start with the Arapa pass (4730m) that we’ll reach in 1 hour and a half approximately. Then we go down to a spectacular valley, full of lagoons, glaciers… before going up again to 4850m to reach the second pass of the day. Finally we arrive at our basecamp after 6 hours hiking for a delicious lunch. This afternoon will be free.
