IFMGA certified guide Juventino wants to guide you on a challenging, but amazing 5 day trek around the mythical and beautiful Ausangate peak near Cusco, Peru.
Spend 5 days trekking around the Ausangate mountain.
See the beauty of the Peruvian Andes.
A great adventure just 100 kilometers away from Cusco.
For 5 day thrilling days, I would like to guide you around the great Ausangate peak. You will get to trek through, gaze at and admire the gorgeous landscape fanning out from all sides of this majestic mountain. Meanwhile, every time you look up, you will get to stare at the mountain’s snow capped summit.
Every day of this trek will present you with new sites to behold and new challenges to conquer. And every night, you will get to relax and rest in a new campsite. At the camp sites, you will also get to enjoy some delicious food and converse about what you have just seen and what you still have yet to see in the days to come.
Our journey will begin in Cusco. From there, we will make our way toward the Ausangate mountain. Along the way, you will get to visit several wonderful Andean villages. Some examples of those villages include Tinki, Upis and Pacchanta. You will also get to visit hot springs and traverse several incredible passes including Jampa (4,650m), Arapa (4,850m), Alcatani (4,650m) and the Palomani pass (5,050m), where you can get great views of Ausangate.
The hike will be challenging, as we will be venturing at high altitudes. As a result, it is important that participants are in good physical condition.
Trekking around Ausangate is an unforgettable adventure. And it is one I would be happy to lead you on. If you would like to join me on this 5 day expedition, just send me a request.
I can also lead you on the classic 10 day Huayhuash trek in the Peruvian Andes as well.
