Ausangate is one of the highest Inca sacred mountains in Peru with a towering peak of 6372m above the sea level. It’s well-regarded by the Inca as the origin of life due to the melting of the glaciers into the cardinal rivers in the region.
Nowadays, the Ausangate is one of the most beautiful remote treks in Peru, featuring rugged highlands, spectacular mountain views, stone shrubs, glacial lakes as well as herds of alpacas and llamas roving around.
The Ausangate trek usually takes 5 days and you will have the opportunity to discover and explore remote pastoral communities, and learn more about their traditional way of life.
Trekking through the rugged highlands of Ausangate is such an amazing adventure. The region offers an opportunity to see another side of Peru and its dreamlike natural scenery. You can cap off your trek with a visit to the Inca Citadel of Machu Picchu.
