A Peru Adventure: The Peaks of Ausangate – An incredible 6 day trek & climb Peru adventure in the Cordillera Vilcanota, on a route known as the “Camino del Apu Ausangate”. The “Apu” is the bearer of life and guardian of one of the most pristine mountain ecosystems in the world.
A stunning and diverse route showing you a part of Peru that is largely untouched by tourism. Communities here continue to live traditionally and without many of the modern utilities that are in use today. Collecting you early from Cusco taking private transport; to meet up with our arrieros and mules at the start point. They will accompany us for the duration of the trek and climb expedition.
Following a short trek for 3 days; through the Vilcanota, you’ll then undertake a climb route of the Nevado Qampa.
Trek & Climb: Nevado Qampa (Jampa, also spelled Campa), is the easiest; and one of the most popular mountains in Cusco and may be climbed without experience in mountaineering. It requires a glacier hike and sometimes a small rock climbing pass depending on the season. Once at the summit it offers an incredible panoramic view; that reaches to Salkantay over 200km in a north western direction.
