At CuscoPeru.com, we have a team of experienced tourism professionals, ready to offer their expertise and the best service to the traveler, to make their visit an unforgettable memory. Our 7 LAKES AUSANGATE FULL DAY Tour has the ultimate goal of exploring rural paths and the stunning lakes of different colors and shades that result from the thaw of the AUSANGATE MOUNTAIN.
We will also have time to enjoy the thermal waters of Pacchanta, where we can relax and admire the surrounding mountains before indulging in an Andean lunch prepared by local families who will warmly welcome us into their homes.
On this tour, we will pick you up at 4:00 a.m. to visit one of the new tourist circuits in Cusco, the trek of "7 LAKES," a journey that will take us 3 hours and 30 minutes southeast of the city of Cusco to the town of Pacchanta, located at 4,200 meters above sea level. Formerly, only those who ventured on the trek to the Ausangate mountain visited this place. Nowadays, it has become one of the most visited places by travelers, attracted by its rural paths and the stunning lakes of different colors and shades that result from the thaw of the majestic mountain of APU AUSANGATE. Completing this trek of the 7 Lakes will take approximately 5 hours, passing through various scenic landscapes with moderate difficulty. Along the way, we'll observe alpacas, llamas, vizcachas (chinchillas), huallatas (Andean geese), foxes, caranchos (Andean hawk), yanarico (Andean marsh raven), and other varieties.
We will return to our base in the town of Pacchanta at approximately 1:00 p.m., where we can enjoy the thermal medicinal pools of Pacchanta, and then savor our lunch made with Andean products.
If you have already acclimatized in Cusco, the reward for this effort in this natural setting, untouched by human hands, will be your best experience!
