Ausangate 6 Days 5 Night

Undoubtedly the Ausangate road offers some of the most wonderful landscapes in the whole area of Cusco, with many birds and wildlife and also glaciers and high alpine lagoons. It is also one of the most difficult in the region, with three open passes over 5,000 meters / 16,000 feet in height. On a clear day, Apu Ausangate dominates the southern horizon of Cusco. As we get closer to this massif (6,380 meters or 20,926 feet) one gets more and more impressed and fully understands why the ancient Incas respected this spectacular mountain so much. Throughout the circuit of the Ausangate trek we pass through local villages where people dress in their typical costumes - women in hats with beautiful ornaments - and llamas graze freely.
