The trip lasts 3 hours where you can observe a part of the Vilcanota Mountain Range (Ausangate and the Callangate), the explorers will arrive in Pacchanta accompanied by the first rays of the sun reaching the Ausangate. The Huillca Expedition team will be waiting for you with breakfast, and the usual smiles. After enjoying breakfast you will get ready to go to our first camp in Pucacocha 4 592, you will start with the post-plain ascent until you arrive at Upis 4 444 m camp, which is usually the first 5-day Ausangate Circuit expedition camp, in our case it is 4 days for this reason we will continue moving forward until we reach the first step called “Arapa Pass 4 734 m” from there you can see our first panorama of the hill. Now we will begin with our descent until we reach the first lagoon called Yanacocha, this lagoon is important because it marks a milestone in the milestone of the Vilcanota communities, it is the place where the “Peasant Rounds” was founded, a communal organization for the safety of settlers, are responsible for solving criminal matters in the Ausangate Valley… So do not even think about stealing! You may be surprised… more information can consult the guide. Well returning to our expedition continues to reach the Huchuy Pucacocha Lagoon and then our Hatun Pucacocha camp. Upon arrival our stores are ready to rest easy.
Day 2: Pucacocha – Inkawasi
Ah! The sun begins gaining territory through the Apacheta Pass, where the expeditions that go to Mountain of Colors go through that pass, our breakfast will be at 7:00 am. (Approximately). The walk will be starting at 8:30 am to the second camp, our first journey goes for two hours to the Ausangate Lagoon. This day will be beautiful and a little difficult at the ascent of the Palomani pass 5 133 m our highest step of the hike, and at what I was referring to. We will descend until we reach our Inkawasi camp 4 643 m. This place is charming for its views of the snowy Ausangate and the extensive alpacas that graze in the area.

In Addition we will cross the Jampa 5 072 m pass that is in the middle of beautiful and mysterious mountains, it will also be our last step, what a sad truth? Hurry up! That the explorers are descending through the lovely turquoise lagoons. When we pass the Otorongo Lagoon or the famous Otorongos for their mysticities we will be almost at the camp, one lap and we will see our camp and our team waiting for us very happy.
