1 Day Trek to the red lake in Ausangate (Vino Cocha)

Trek to this beautiful red lake near the Ausangate Mountain in just 1 day, if you are visiting any of the natural and archaeological attractions that are located on the outskirts of the Imperial City of Cusco, we recommend you take a tour of this hike. Due to its relative novelty, you will not find so much influx of tourists, which will allow you to take the time you want to tour and admire this natural beauty.

The Red Lake is located near the foot of Mount Ausangate, one of the highest mountains in Cusco. This red lake is  over 4780 m.a.s.l. to participate in this trek, we recommend you to take a day off at least in Cusco to acclimatize.

While the trip to Red Lake may sound exhausting, we remind you that on the way you can observe various natural scenarios. Here you can find the local flora and fauna, as well as small towns with very peculiar and friendly characteristics.
