AUSANGATE TREK

Feel the spirituality high in the mountains and understand the importance of the Ausangate Mountain to the local communities.

Explore AUSANGATE TREK

Observe incredible wildlife and various species along with local fauna.

Ausangate is one of the highest mountains in the Cusco region and is also an important cultural centre for the Andean communities. Every year huge pilgrimages are made to the mountain. This has been going on for centuries.

The peak of the mountain is 6,385 masl, but we won’t go quite that high. On this hike you’ll come close to nature and feel the connection while you observe the impressive views that surround you. You’ll get to observe some fascinating bird species and other wildlife along the way as well as spectacular landscapes.

Unlike other hikes, this is more about nature and its beauty rather than Inca ruins. This is a quieter trek in the Cusco region and you can enjoy peace and tranquility. It’s perfect for those who love outdoor trekking adventures.

Free cancellation

Change of plans? No problem. Cancel up to 24 hours before your activity starts for a full refund.

Our Horsemen & Horses In Ausangate Trek

All of our horsemen are from Upis, which is the starting point of our trek. We make sure to employ responsible people that are serious about what they do. This way, they do an excellent job at transporting everyone’s items along the trail with mules and are in charge of getting your gear safely to each campsite where it will be waiting for you.
Our horsemen are very content with us receiving a good salary and benefits at the end of each season. Peru Hike provides all the mountain gear and uniforms to the horsemen. These guys can be of great help in an emergency because they know the area and trail like the back of their hand.

Knowledgeable Tour Guides

In all of our trekking trips, the chef ensures high-quality meals on time, an adequate diet both in its quality and quantity. The secret lies in the careful selection of our team of chefs, whose top-quality restaurant background,
creativity and passion for their jobs provide an unequalled touch to all of our meals. We do not have set menus since we wish to give our chefs the chance to create, innovate and surprise our clients through delicious dishes in every
trip.

The Best Camping Equipment

Enjoy a good night’s sleep in our spacious Eureka tent. All our tents are built to be four man tents, but you will only have to share with one other trekker. This leaves a lot of room to spread out comfortably and store your duffels.
They are an A-frame design, with entrances on both sides of the tent. They also include a vestibule in front, giving you some extra outdoor space to leave your boots and walking sticks. We are proud to be the only company to use these
tents.

Ausangate Trek Travel Guide

Before You Go, What You Should Know

Ausangate Trek Highlights

Here are the top highlights that you’ll enjoy on the excursion:

  • Feel the spirituality high in the mountains and understand the importance of the Ausangate Mountain to the local communities.
  • Observe incredible wildlife and various species along with local fauna.
  • Take in some of the best views you’ll ever see.
  • Take part in a real mountain adventure and overcome the challenge.
  • Form your own connection with the Andean mountains and recharge your energy.

Very High Altitude

One of the things that makes this trek more challenging is the altitude. You’ll reach Condor Pass at 5,400 masl, so you need to make sure you’ve prepared for the high elevation in advance. You can do this by arriving in Cusco a few days before to acclimate. Failing to take this into consideration could leave you feeling sick on the trek or even unable to go.

Wonderful Views

There’s no doubt that on this trek through the Andean mountains you’ll see some incredible sights. Expect to see lakes, snowy mountain peaks, and rolling hills. Don’t forget your camera to capture it all.

Changing Weather

The weather in the mountains can change a lot. In the days you’ll feel the sun beating on your face. Make sure you use a lot of protection from it as you’re much closer to it up here. In the nights it will get chilly, so make sure you have the right clothing. It may also rain, so a lightweight poncho is a must in your backpack.

Basic Amenities

Being away from the city means you’ll be going back to basics. You’ll be camping along the route, so won’t have proper bathrooms or showers. In some spots you’ll find places to buy water and maybe some simple snacks, but it’s best to take enough with you from the start.

To Feel Tired

Even though this trek isn’t the most difficult in the region, you’ll be walking long distances at high altitude. The days can feel long, so know that you’ll feel tired along the way.

Ausangate Facts

Now for a few facts about this adventurous trek.

  • The average altitude along the trek is 4,000 masl.
  • This route doesn’t attract many tourists, so it’s very quiet.
  • The temperature at night can go as low as -15°C.
  • You won’t see many vehicles as most of the route is far away from any roads.
  • You don’t need a specific permit to go on this trek, so there’s always availability.
  • The mountain, Apu Ausangate, is seen as the owner of all the Cusco region.

Ausangate Tips

  • Read on for some useful tips to help you get ready for your trek.

    • Spend time in Cusco before the trek. Going on small hikes around the city and the Sacred Valley will help you prepare for the high altitude.
    • If you’re worried about the altitude, talk to a doctor back home about the possibility of a prescription for some pills to help you cope. You can also consume coca tea once in Cusco to help.
    • Starting an exercise and stretching regime weeks before you come will help greatly. Include long hikes over weekends to aid your body in building muscle and stamina.
    • Don’t drink alcohol in Cusco before your trek. This can make the effects of the altitude far worse and make you very ill.
    • To stay hydrated at the altitude and in the strong sunlight you need to drink water frequently along the route.
    • Go at your own pace on the trek. Your guide will always be with you and there’s no need to rush. Again, this can make you feel sick if you overexert yourself.

Recommendations

Finally, when you’ve got your trek booked, take a look at these recommendations to make sure you’ve got all you need.

Use a Packing List

Make use of our packing lists for treks to make sure you have everything you need without going over the weight limit. It can be tough to know exactly what you need when leaving town for a few days.

Get Travel Insurance

This is a must as most tour operators won’t allow you on their tours without one. You’ll also find that if you fall ill or have an accident and aren’t insured, the healthcare in Peru is expensive.

Plan Your Trip Beforehand

The further ahead you plan the better prepared you’ll be. This also gives the tour operator or agency you choose to travel with the chance to make sure they have a guide free for your trip. Hoping to book upon arrival in Cusco could mean you miss out as there isn’t anyone available.

Consider Weather Conditions

Some people like to hike in the warm sun, and others in colder climates. From May to October is the dry season in Cusco. The sun is warm in the day but the nights get very cold. If you decide to come between November and April, you’ll be trekking during the rainy season. This can make the trail a little slippery and the general climate is a little warmer.

Pack Snacks

You’ll be well-fed on the trip, but packing extra snacks means you can get a quick boost of energy whenever you need it on the trail. Think of high calorie energy snacks like chocolate, nutrs, and dried fruits.
