Itinerary

Day 1: Cusco - Upis - Yana Qocha

We will pick you up at 5 am from your hotel; we drive for 3.5 hours to the trailhead, a small town of Upis, passing Urcos Pass (4,000 m/13,123 ft) Oncogate town along the way. We will enjoy some breakfast at the trail trailhead and meet our local horseman and horses and get ready for the adventure.

After breakfast, we will start hiking for three-hour toward the northwest face of the impressive Ausangate mountain, enjoying the sceneries with llamas and alpacas. We will have lunch around noon by the skirt of Ausanagte Mountain.

Following lunch, we will climb for another 1.5 hours uphill to the first pass called Arapa Pass (4,800mt./15,748ft.) and then approximately 1:30 hours to your evening campsite at Yana Qocha (4,650 mt / 15,256 ft.), which is a place with amazing views around of the Ausangate mountain. Happy hour is around 5:30 pm, and dinner is at approx 7:00 pm, depending on hiking speed/weather.

Day 2: Yana Qocha - Puka Qocha Pass - Qomer Qocha

After breakfast, we begin our trek with a 2-hour downhill and 1 hour and 30 minutes uphill to the second pass of the trail, called Puka Qocha. Along the way, we will enjoy colorful lakes surrounded by high mountains and unbelievable hanging glaciers, watch and hear for the glacier crashing into the tarns below! At the top of the pass, we will have a beautiful view of Ausangante Mountain. We will enter into the Red Mountain valley, an intact landscape with vivid colors all around, and llamas eating grass right close to you; as you approach the lunch place, we still have a fantastic view of the Rocky Mountains and have delicious lunch.

Following lunch, we continue trekking uphill for 2 hours to reach the Warmisaya Pass (16,404ft.); from this pass, we will spot the Rainbow Mountain in a further distance, and the views are still awe-inspiring. After witnessing the sights and taking some pictures, we will walk the last 30-45 minutes downhill to reach the second camp located in Qomer Qocha (15,354ff.). Happy hour is around 5:30 pm, and dinner at approx. 7:00 pm depending on hiking speed/weather.

Day 3: Qomer Qocha - Rainbow Mountain - Ausangate Qocha

Today is a great day that awaits us because we will explore the Rainbow Mountain, also called the 7-Color Mountain, one of the most beautiful trails in the Cusco region! We will wake early with the coca tea delivered to your tent, and then we will enjoy breakfast. After breakfast, we will hike up for about 1 and 30 minutes before reaching the famous Rainbow Mountain to beat the large crowds, explore in solitude, and take pictures.

At Rainbow Mountain, we will spend approximately 45 minutes (depending on your trekking speed and weather conditions). After exploring the epic Rainbow Mountain, we will go back to our camp by the same path that we took; along the way, we will have a chance to see some peasants still using the llamas as in the Incas time.

Once we get to the camp, we have time to rest and enjoy the delicious lunch. In the afternoon, we hike for 3 hours along the skirt of colorful mountains to reach our campsite, called Ausangate Qocha (4,300mt. /14,107ft.), which is at the bottom of one of the Ausangate glaciers. Happy hour is around 5:30 pm, with dinner at 7:00 pm.

Day 4: Ausangate Qocha - Palomani Pass - Jhampapampa

After breakfast, we leave camp about 7:00 am and climb steeply for 3 hours to the highest point of our whole trail called Palomani pass (5,100mt. / 15,010ft.).

From the pass, there are extensive views of all the peaks in the Cordillera Vilcanota and some other colored hills which are still close by; we will then walk downhill to get the valley part, where we will eat our lunch, in the late afternoon we will walk up for 2 more hours to the next camp spot located at an elevation of 4,700 m / 15,420 feet. We will have happy hour around 5:30 pm, subsequently dinner.

Day 5: Jhampapampa - Jhampa Pass - Ninaparayoq

After breakfast, we will hike gradually up to the Jhampa pass (5,400mt. /17,716ft.) for 2 hours. We have incredible views of The Three Peaks and enjoy amazing views of the glacier peaks right in front of us at this pass.

As well as will hopefully get a glimpse of some wild vicuña and deer, and if we are fortunate, a condor, subsequently, we will arrive at the last campsite called Ninaparayoq 4,700mt. / 15,420ft. We will enjoy lunch and after that, the whole afternoon is for relaxing at this last camp with happy hour and dinner following.

Day 6: Ninaparayoq - Pacchanta Town - Cusco

Today is the last day of our trek through the Peruvian Andes, so we get up early for another great day; after having breakfast, we’ll hike downhill the Pacchanta valley for about 2-3 hours to Pacchanta town, the final point of the Ausangate trail.

Pacchanta is a rural community that boasts some well-known thermal baths where we can enjoy a nice dip with fantastic views of the faces of Ausangate. We’ll eat our last lunch prepared by our private chef at this place. After having lunch, we’ll have a farewell ceremony for our muleteers, cooks, and guides.
