The snowy Ausangate Mountain was and is currently one of the most important mountains since the Inca era, because in the concept of the Andean man this mountain represents one of the main deities according to the Andean cult and also in the contemporary Christian cult. It is also known as Apu Ausangate. The Ausangate Cusco tour of 5 days that we offer below is designed for you to get to know wonderful landscapes of this high mountain on a route that has not yet been highly promoted for tourism; you can appreciate native communities, beautiful mountain landscapes, lagoons of different colors, and Andean camelids in their natural habitat as llamas, alpacas and vicuñas

Important Information

The majority of the people living in the Ausangate Region are very poor and live on animal husbandry and farming. A small group of farmers and our agency want to help these people. A small voluntary donation can help them buy, for example, clothing or school supplies. The families will be very grateful.

DAY 1: CUSCO - TINQUI ? UPIS:

We start from Cusco very early in the morning, we pick you up from your hotel in the city of Cusco and we go to the south-east of the city, approximately three hours of trip in private transport to the small town of Tinqui (3800 meters / 12,464 feet). We pass through beautiful landscapes and several traditional villages such as Urcos, Cattca and Ocangate. After lunch in Tinqui, we will start the trek where the first 3 hours of the road will be an unforgettable experience as we cross the mountains in the Cordillera del Vilcanota and from now on, if the weather allows us, we can see the snow or Apu Ausangate. We will walk two more hours until we reach the thermal springs in Upis (4,400 meters / 14,432 feet). We will camp here at night (4-5 hours of trekking).

DAY 2: FROM UPIS TO AUSANGATE Q'OCHA LAGOON:

In the morning we will cross the Abra de Arapa (4,850 meters / 15,908 feet), this being one of the highest points in the trek. From here, we continue for 3 hours and a half descending through the valley, passing through the green lagoon of Puqa Q'ocha until we reach the turquoise waters of the Jatun Puqa Q'ocha Lagoon. Next, we will climb the second pass of Apuchata (4,900 meters / 16,072 feet), overlooking the impressive Ausangate Q'ocha Lagoon and its turquoise blue waters. This lagoon feeds on the melting snow of the snow-capped Ausangate. We will camp here the second night.

DAY 3: FOR AUSANGATE Q'OCHA LAGOON TO QAMPA:

From the lagoon we ascend again towards the Palomani Pass (5,200 meters / 17,056 feet) - the highest point of the trek. From the fissure we follow the path to the valley where we can rest and have lunch. In the afternoon we will be able to appreciate the snow-capped Tres Picos and Punta Puca. We will continue through the wide green valley of Pampa Jutunpata and up the valley of the Q'ampa River. We will spend the third night in this area.

DAY 4: FROM Q'AMPA TO PACCHANTA:

Very early in the morning we start with the walk where we will pass through the small community of Q'ampa; then we will head northwest until the last pass of this hike - abra Q'ampa (5,000 meters / 16,400 feet). Once again we will have the opportunity to observe lagoons of different colors and we will have lunch near the Q'oma Q'ocha Lagoon. We will walk for several hours before arriving at the small town of Pacchanta. We can enjoy the hot springs for a couple of hours and even have a well-deserved beer! We will establish a camp near Pacchanta and will have the afternoon free to explore this interesting Andean town. (You have the option of staying in a basic hostel tonight).

DAY 5: FROM PACCHANTA TO CUSCO:

It is a 3 hours walk back to Tinqui, where we will have time to explore this traditional Andean town before taking private bus back to Cusco, arriving at approximately 6:00 p.m., to culminate this tour in Cusco to Ausangate.

Notes: We are going to go up to 5200m / 17060f. In combination with the extreme weather this trip can be hard work.
