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!
