Situated just 100 kilometers from Cusco, the Ausangate Trek is one of the top hiking routes in all of Peru!
Over the course of four days, we will hike around this beautiful mountain, taking in amazing views as we go and staying in stunning locations each night.
Expect to see snow-capped peaks, glaciers, lagoons, ice caverns, and thermal waters. We’ll even get the chance to soak in these hot springs at the end of one of our days.
We will also see plenty of natural beauty as we go as well; hiking through valleys filled with wildflowers and Andean cacti.
Since we wake up quite early on several of the days, we may also get the chance to some of the rare and native wildlife, including camelids, chinchillins, Andean condors and even a puma!
The two middle days of our trek will take us over various mountain passes that afford stunning views out over the surrounding landscapes. These views are the most spectacular on the trip. Be sure to bring your camera and extra batteries.
So what are you waiting for? Book now for an unforgettable 4-day adventure along the Ausangate Trek in the heart of Peru’s stunningly scenic Cordillera Vilcanota.
If you like the look of this trip then I think you might also enjoy my 5-day version of this trek or my 5-day trek along the Salkantay trail to Machu Picchu!

The hike was canceled. We didn’t go anywhere. Didn’t even get into the country.
The agency gave me a guide Darwin, not Juventino. Climb was good, easy just walking. There is one dangerous section near the moraine area with very loose gravel. So make sure you don't slip there or you are dead. I stayed in refugio at the base camp which was much more comfy than camping. Darwin was good but give clients some breaks once in a while, not rush too much. It's a high altitude climbing after all.
William was such a knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient guide! He brought books and support materials to further explain the history of the sites we were seeing, was always ready with an answer to any questions, and had great suggestions of where to take photos. He chose a truly remarkable cook for our trek, who kept us well fed with a huge variety of foods (and an ample supply of it!) and filled with hot beverages at all hours of the day and night. He allowed us to set the pace each day, and was cheerful and helpful and relaxed throughout-he absolutely enhanced a wonderful experience! Many thanks to you, William!
Eric from Peru Expeditions is a fabulous, safe, and conscientious Tour Operator. He chose an incredible guide for us (Darwin) who was highly esteemed by every guide we met at every point along the journey-the respect of one’s peers speaks for itself! We were very well supported, always had perfect timing with seeing sunrises, beating “the crowd” to our destinations, and had ample food. The Peruvian mountains are stunningly beautiful- I’m ready to go back again already! Book with Eric - he’s going to take good care of you.
Great service and trip!
