AUSANGATE EXPLORER

 

Ausangate Trekking, is the true image of the high Andes in Peru, the  Apu Asugante is located in the Cordillera Vilcanota (6,342m). In our trek we cross spectacular passes, explore a radiant landscape below ice peaks and enormous glaciers.  Ausangate is  a strong hold of traditional Quechua culture/world immersion, the native who live at 14000ft tending their herds of Llamas and Alpacas surrounded by colourful glacial lakes, deep red cliffs and relaxing hot spring with Andean atmosphere. You will also have a good chance of encountering condors, the largest flying bird in the world, and other Andean fauna.

TOUR DESCRIPTION:

 

DAY 1. Cusco - Tinki

We will pass to pick up you at 06.00am from your hotel then traveling for about 100 km. to the southeast from Cusco in the morning. The road passes north of Ausangate Mountain, and we leave the road a bit west of the mountain. Our first camp is n Tinki at 3,800 meters, as we fall asleep the setting sun lights up the glacier face of Ausangate.

DAY 2. Tinki - Upis

After to enjoy our breakfast, we will continue our trek on the top of the Andean mountains crossing and hiking up to the Ausangate glacier.

DAY 4. Pucacocha - Chilcapinaya

We rise to cross the Palomani pass at 4,800 m.a.s.l. This is the highest point on the journey. We don't pass between the massif and the spur, but rather rise to take advantage of a gentler slope high on the mountains side. Here we can see east over the large hand-shaped Lagune Sivinacocha to the jagged, snowcapped Vilcanota Mountains, which cradle this valley. We descend to our camp at Chilcapinaya.

Frequently Asked Questions-(FAQ)

How difficult is the Ausangate Trek?You just need to remember that you are able to go at a speed that is comfortable for you. Take your time, pace yourself, and enjoy. Ausangate Trek is considered a moderate hike, not a technical hike but high altitude may affect some people.Are Trekking poles or Sticks necessary? We recommend the use of Trekking poles, especially for those passengers with known knee problems. There are multiple times during the trek that a Trekking poles is handy, be it ascending a mountain or walking along the rough trails. Is altitude sickness common? And how high is the Ausangate Trek?It's impossible to predict who will be affected by altitude. Your ability to adapt to high altitude is determined by your genetic makeup and has little to do with fitness or health. Most people will have no problems as long as they take the time to acclimatizeProperly. A full 2 days spent in Cusco (3399m), taking it very easy and drinking plenty of water is enough for some people but if you can arrange to have minimum 2-3 days in case of any travel disruptions as well then this is what we recommend as there is also so much to do here!. The highest point you will reach while hiking Ausangate reaches 5280m on the 2nd day. Will I need to bring water?We recommend that you purchase a 1.5 – 2 liter bottle of water to take with you on the first day. Every night during the trek, we will boil water so you can refill the same bottle every morning before setting out. If you are planning to drink from any streams or waterfalls, we strongly suggest you bring water purification tablets or filters.Also, you will be able to buy water along the way on Day 1, for the first few hours of Day 2, then again on the afternoon of Day 3, and of course at Machu Picchu. Is the Ausangate Trek still good during the rainy season?Some people actually like to go during the rainy season because there are fewer tourists but we say please be prepared for wet weather and have suitable clothes and equipment. Possibly snow so be prepared for a possible change of route if a pass is deemed impassable by the guide.We do not recommend this trek in the months of January, February and March. Will I be able to witness the sunrise at Ausangate?You first encounter Machu Picchu as the sun rises over the high mountains encircling it. It is already dawn but this impressive moment of Machu Picchu coming out of the shadows of the looming mountains is awesome. Will I need any extra money?Yes or yes we recommend to take extra money, tips for your trekking staff, souvenirs, snacks, bottled water, drinks, etc. You should take at least 300 soles as emergency money. Do Tour guides speak English?Completely fluent in English. Our guides are also one of the most popular aspects of our tours some of them being historians and archaeologists and all demonstrate a great passion for their culture and heritage.
