Few places are so striking for the extreme beauty of its surroundings. Guided by the true heirs of the Incan Empire (Tahuantinsuyu), explore a magical, wild world like few others, a kingdom of ice and snow massifs, enchanted forests, and lakes hidden in the depths of the mountains.

From Urcos, we will start going uphill until reaching the highland savannah. Later, the Cordillera Vilcanota will appear in the distance, with mount Ausangate and mount Jampa clearly visible until we will pass throw Tinki town. Beginning the trek we will cross the Ocongate river and start traversing the puna (highland meadows), until we reach the foot of the Ausangate where the panorama of snowcapped peaks becomes breathtaking. We will camp at Upis, where the hot springs will make it a great place to relax after the rigors of the day.
Day 2: Upis / Pucacocha - (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included) Today, first we will ascend the screen slopes to cross a 4,500 m pass, carrying on to Lake Pucacocha with the western ice-fall of Mount Ausangate looming over our lake side camp.

Then, descending to Chilcapinaya we will make a campsite on Huchuy Finaya.
Day 4: Huchuy Finaya / Jampa Pass / Pacchanta (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included) Hiking up the Jampa valley we will quite likely be able to meet highland shepherds tending their sheep and alpaca, spinning and weaving their wool into cloth with the peaks of Jampa and Colquecruz acting as a backdrop. Circling northwest around the Ticllacocha lagoon and over the last pass (4,650 m) we will reach the small meadow of Pachaspata for lunch, continuing our trek to Pacchanta community.
