New Departure Added for Peru’s Spectacular Ausangate Trek

A new departure has been added to the incredible Ausangate Trek in Peru, September 2-10.  This trek near Cusco is truly spectacular — a circuit around the high, snow-capped peak of Ausangate, the tallest mountain in the Cusco region at 6, 327 meters.  Ausangate is still worshiped by the locals, as is its “Apu” god that resides at its summit.

The relaxed six day trek around this awesome massif goes over several 5,000m high passes, through llama grazing plains, ancient Inca villages, past red, blue and green lakes and remote campsites with spectacular views. The trek is mule supported so all the comforts of home can be taken, leaving trekkers unburdened to fully enjoy the hike. Visits to hot-springs, friendly locals and amazing mountain views make this trek one of the great mountain circuit treks available.
