  • Join one of the few expeditions to attempt this ascent (less than 8 a year).

  • Discover why many locals consider this mountain a God.

  • This ascent is a great way to acclimatize and get ready for bigger ascents.

The summit of Ausangate is one of the world’s most incredible places. Let me guide you to the top of this colossal peak. And enjoy its breathtaking sceneries with me.

Ausangate (6,384 m) is the fifth highest peak in Peru. Its exclusive membership to the club of the 6,000+ meters mountains in the Cuzco Region, grants it a top place in the most wanted ascents on Earth.

Heinrich Harrer was the first to lead an expedition to the summit of Ausangate in 1953. After his conquest, many have followed his steps to the top. And you can be one of them!

One of the amazing things about this mountain is that its normal route is not too technically difficult. However is not an easy ascent. It requires participants to have a good fitness level, and an excellent amount of stamina for the trail to the top.

This magnificent peak can be seen from many places around Cuzco. But, the views you will get from the summit are simply incomparable. 

The itinerary I suggest begins in Cuzco from where we’ll climb up to Base Camp in Machuraca. Then, from Base camp we will start our ascent to the Advanced camp. The next day, will be the day in which we reach the summit. After taking in the sceneries we’ll head back to the Base Cam. Finally, on the last day of our journey we will descend from Base Camp back to Cuzco.

Would you like to join this expedition to the top of Ausangate? Just send me a request. I would be more than honoured to guide you to this majestic summit.
