Description

Ausangate (6398m/20991f) is considered to be one of the most beautiful snow-capped mountains of the Andes. The region around the mountain offers impressive scenery of mountains, glaciers, lagoons and streams.
This is one of the most beautiful choices to visit the rainbow land in Ausangate. Besides, it is a different experience because we are going to walking over 4500 msnm. During the trip, we will see the most famous mountain of Cusco and Peru (Ausangate, and beautiful landscapes). This tour combines a bit of culture, tradition, and amazing flora and fauna offered by the Andes of Peru and it is a perfect place to find peace and a sense of Andean life.

Ausangate is the ultimate trekking destination in the Cusco area. This beautiful snow-capped peak is one of the main features of the Cusco skyline but very few people actually ever see it up close. The area around Ausangate is full of natural beauty; with azure lakes and the majestic snow-capped peak ever present, trekking here is truly amazing. The 5 day Ausangate trek really allows you to see a part of Peru few ever visit, this unforgettable trail is perfect for people who love to get away from it all.
