Ausangate Trek

Ausangate Mountain Trek

Ausangate Treks offer some of the most beautiful landscapes in the whole ​​Cusco area. With its many birds and wildlife but also its glaciers and high andean lakes, it is also one of the most difficult treks in the region: three open passes over 5,000 meters / 16,000 feet. Throughout the Ausangate trek, you will be able to enjoy the local people's traditional clothings, hats and ornaments as well as hundreds of free-grazing lamas as we pass through villages. On a clear day, the Ausangate Mountain dominates the horizon south of Cusco. As we approach this massif (6,380 meters or 20,926 feet) it gets more and more impressive, and we get to completely grasp why the ancient Incas respected this spectacular mountain.

In the Andean cosmovision, the Ausangate is the most important sacred mountain around Cusco and the Altiplano, hence its name: Apu Ausangate (APU is the name given to the sacred in the Andean mountains).

Discover THE RAINBOW MOUNTAIN (Vinicunca) and Ausangate Mount Trek,  Vinicunca is better known by the locals as CERRO COLORADO in this 4-day trek! From high above, its geological formations reveal all their splendour, in contrast with the blue skies. The cordillera Vilcanota forms a formidable barrier between the coastal desert and the Amazonian jungle, and counts almost as many glaciers as the White Cordillera, Located at the south of Cusco and dominated by the AUSANGATE Mountain (6384 m), this far removed area has remained isolated from external influences of the Chilca, and kept intact much of its pre-colonial customs and habits. Qeros Tours Peru is very excited to be able to offer APPs travellers a hiking alternative that is second to none.

The Ausangate (6,398 m./20,991 ft.) is considered to be one of the most beautiful snowcapped mountains of the Andes. The region around the mountain offers impressive scenery of mountains, glaciers, lagoons and icy streams. Furthermore, the Andean people are very hospitable and strongly believe in the respect and preservation of nature. The farmers have excellent knowledge in the raising of cattle such as the vicuña, alpaca & llama, which are all appreciated for their fine quality wool and meat. The 4-hour drive from Cusco to Tinqui is an excellent preparation for the difference in altitude and temperature.

The mountain chain of the Ausangate is situated in the Cordillera Vilcanota in the department of Cusco. It is one of the most remote high Andean zones of Peru and offers a spectacular trekking circuit along snowcapped peaks, lagoons, ice caverns and thermal waters. Furthermore, it houses a thousand-year-old culture. Hiking completely around this mystical mountain, we camp near hot springs and turquoise lakes inhabited by numerous bird species, including Andean geese and the almighty Andean Condor, and walk amongst herds of llamas and alpacas in remote native Quechua villages.
