5 DAYS / 4 NIGHTS FROM $1250


Enquire Now

A five day breathtaking trek in the Cordillera Vilcanota, on a route we call the "Camino del Apu Ausangate" (Road of the Apu Ausangate) located in close proximity to the highest, sacred mountain in the Cusco region. The "APUS" is the bearer of life and the guardian of one of the most pristine mountain ecosystems in the world. Our treks will be accompanied by llamas and horses that carry our gear, which that are owned by the shepherds of the Chillca community whom are proud to share with us their land and the spirit of this inspiring world. On our hikes and in our unique "Tambos" or Andean Lodges, daily meals will be prepared by experienced chefs, introducing you to a great variety of delicious Peruvian cuisine and produce. As for entertainment, authentic, vernacular music from members of the communities will accompany some of our nights in the "Tambos".


Minimum:2 people
Operating Seasons:April - November

DAY 1: CUSCO / CHILLCA - (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included) After an early breakfast, passengers will depart from Cusco along the fertile Vilcanota Valley to the town of Checacupe (1 1⁄2 hours, 100 km). After a visit to the colonial temple of La Inmaculada, we will start ascending the Pitumarca valley, along the spectacular Japura gorge that leads to Chillca, where we will be greeted by the community. (1 1/2 hours, 42 km). From there, it is a short and easy walk to the first “Tambo” (45 minutes). Once at the lodge, there will be time to relax and enjoy the music provided by the locals of Chillca.

DAY 2: CHILLCA / MACHURACAY - (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included) Our hike will begin at 08.30 in the wide valley of Upis where impressive glacier mountains loom above the valley offering majestic views. The trail narrows as we make our way towards the waterfalls descending from the Santa Catalina Mountain. This path is mostly used by the wandering llamas of the area and once reaching the small Paloma lagoon the countryside will be dotted with these animals, and also a large number of alpacas. After hiking along a second lagoon and crossing a long series of moraines, we will reach the Machuracay Tambo, located right at the bottom of the Apu Ausangate.

DAY 3: MACHURACAY / ANANTAPATA - (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included) After a demanding ascent of the Palomani pass at an elevation of 5,200 m. / 17,000 ft., we will descend to Ausangatecocha. Tremendous views of the glaciar south face of the “apu” will inspire us as we continue towards the red sandstone formations of the “Nevado Del Inca”. Overnight stay in the Anantapata Tambo.  

DAY 4: ANANTAPATA / HUAMPOCOCHA - (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included)  A spectacular part of the trail will find us hiking in the middle of mountains with red, ochre, and blue strata. This section offers a glimpse of marvelous geological wonders and natural beauty. Also, we will be on the lookout for groups of gracious vicuñas, as they are frequently spotted in this isolated area. We will sleep that night in the Huampococha Tambo, in the heart of large rock formations near a lagoon where “huallatas” (Andean geese) make their nests. 

DAY 5: HUAMPOCOCHA / CUSCO - (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included) After a last climb over the Anta pass; we will gradually make our descent. In this section the first crops and houses come into view. The landscape changes quickly as the red sandstone formations are followed by the carsten erosion of limestone, forming a one of a kind stone forest, and a perfect habitat for “vizcacha” (members of the chinchilla family). By the time we get down the valley, our bus will be waiting for the return trip to Cusco. Upon arrival to Cusco, passengers will be directed to the hotel. Dinner will be served in the hotel.

NOTE: The average trekking time per day is of 6 top 7 hours, approximately 15 km per day, except for the first day, where we hike for about 45 minutes.
