Ausangate Trek 5 days:

The pick up of the explorers in Cusco is at 4.30 am to go to the community of Pacchanta. After an approximate 3-hour trip, we arrive at Ausangate Lodge, where we meet our Pachamama Peru Trek team (guide, cook, muleteers) who will serve us breakfast to start the Ausangate Trek trek. We begin our walk starting a slight climb that crosses the puna (dry, high area with little vegetation) and then arrive at our lunch place after a three-hour walk. From here we already have beautiful views of the sacred peak of Ausangate 6 384 m. After lunch, we continue walking for another hour and a half to reach our camp in Upis at 4 400 m. From this point, we can appreciate fabulous views of all the snow peaks in the area. We camp and have dinner directly in front of Ausangate

After breakfast, we continue our walk ascending for two hours to reach Arapa Pass 4 7340 m. We descend to our lunch spot, crossing an area of hawks and”vizcachas” or Andean rodents. This area also has three beautiful lakes with shades of red, green and turquoise colors (Huchuy Pucacocha, Hatun Pucacocha and Yanacocha) and spectacular views of the surrounding snow peaks.
