Trekking the High Andes of Peru

A 5 Day, Fully-supported Trek Near Ausangate Mountain

Experience trekking the high Andes of Peru with a breathtaking 5-day trek near Ausangate Mountain (20,945 ft) in the Cordillera Vilcanota.

Our private, guided trek is fully supported with llamas carrying our gear as we hike from lodge to lodge. Accommodation will be in unique, rustic “tambos” or Andean Lodges, owned by the local community. Daily meals will be prepared by experienced chefs who will introduce you to a great variety of delicious Peruvian dishes, and for your entertainment: authentic vernacular music, played by local inhabitants, will liven up some of your evenings at the "tambos." This trek is non-technical and you only need to carry your day pack.

Each day is about 5-7 hours of hiking at high altitude (the highest pass is nearly 17,000 feet).

 

This privately guided trek is perfect for families or a group of friends.  

We can customize this itinerary for you to create a truly unique Peruvian experience.
