Camino del Apu Ausangate

Trekking tour in Cusco

Tour Price : U$ 845 Duration : Five days and Four nights from Cusco to Cusco Languages: Spanish, English, German

This private tour in Cusco is considered as one of the best trekking experiences in Peru and the fact that many mountain trekking enthusiasts choose it as the main part of their Peruvian vacation is a good sign. With five days and four nights of endless mountain exploration you will experience the most amazing trekking route there is in this region of the Andes. The tour starts and ends in Cusco, but believe us that you’ll return to the city as a completely different person as compared to the one that has left it.

The untouched natural beauty of Cordillera Vilcanota is a great sight, and you will also have the opportunity to see how the indigenous communities have managed to work out a way to live in such distant and somewhat inhospitable environment.

The main part of the trek is revolving around the mountain Ausangate and it will be our main destination. You will also see other remarkable geological structures and elevated planes, which provide great views and will charge you up with the cleanest air there could be on the planet. Take note that it’s a mountain trekking route that can be very demanding to its participants, so having a basic training in trekking is a must.

But if you are an avid lover of mountain adventures selecting this tour is a must, since it’s simply the most inspiring adventure you will enjoy in Peru.

Last October myself and a small group of hikers had a fantastic 5 days out of the beaten path experience in the mountains of Vilcanota range south of Cusco Peru.
Our trail is locally known as the Camino del Apu Ausangate, every day it was like being in a new film the scenario as it changed so much, from extensive pastures dotted with thousands of Llamas and Alpacas, to incredible colourful mountains, passing by Glaciers and lakes.
The hike itself despite the altitude was moderate, we started at some 13.500 ft, and went through a 16,500 pass, stayed in Tambos, or Andean lodges, these were very comfortable and the food was superb, thanks to Feliciano our chef..
The local community provides all the services, and Llamas carry your personal gear.. Orlando our host was a gracious, president of the community, He greeted us the first day with his harp and accompanied us in our trek.
We had the opportunity to meet with the Andean shepherds, and learned the myths and tradition of their communities, we also participated in a weaving demonstration , by the ladies from Osefina a neighbouring community.
Kimberly a fellow hiker was able to photograph wild Vicuña.. and I was close to tears from emotion as we passed the Yauricunca pass.. We could only say thank You to our main Guide Roger, The trip was a life changing experience..
