Without a doubt, the 5 days Ausangate Trek is one of the best experiences you can have on your trip to Peru. Set high up in the Andes, this less trodden path offers a fantastic view of the sacred peak “Apu”. It is the highest peak in the region at 6,372 metres. It dominates the southern skyline of Cusco. Infact, it can be seen on a clear day pretty much from most part of the city.
A true hidden gem. This trek offers entrancing views right from the start till the end. You will be walking through turquoise lagoons and glaciers. It takes you to some untouched wilderness. You will also be visiting multiple hot springs. Moreover, a part of the trek takes you through highland Andean farms. You will have the opportunity to witness the life of Andean people. The local people have preserved their age old traditions and customs.
Ausangate 5 days Trek is truly a lifetime experience. It makes you feel so close to the nature than you have ever felt before.
It is not the easiest trek though. With most of the mountain passes ranging from 4700 metres to 5200 metres. Although, every effort that you put will be rewarded. This is one of the prettiest 5 day hikes in Cusco
As the trek involves many high passes. We highly recommend you to spend at-least 3 days in Cusco, acclimatising to avoid altitude sickness. While you are acclimatising you may choose to learn about Cusco on our Cusco City Tour or Visit the Sacred Valley of Incas.
As Ausangate Mountain is a part of Andes, it is prone to two seasons, Rainy season and Dry Season. It normally rains in Peruvian highlands from December to March. During monsoon, it gets slippery and the chances of landslide exists. It is best to hike from April to November, which is the dry season.
At Treks in Cusco, we are passionate about high altitude treks and mountaineering. We work with an experienced team of local guides and crew who love what they do. On all high altitude treks, we carry oxygen cans to help our trekkers recover quickly if they have altitude sickness.
