Ausangate Trek 5D/4N

Itinerary

**While this trek is available year-round, we recommend avoiding the rainy season (November - March) when there will be less visibility on the trek, potentially obscuring the amazing views. The climate will also be colder, often with snow. 

 

Overview:

You will be picked up from your accommodation in Cuzco on Day 1 to take a bus to the town of Tinqui, where the trek begins. Trek to Upis and then to Ausangate Lake on Day 2. Trek to Jampa on Day 3 on the most beautiful and most difficult day of the trip. Ascend to the spectacular Campa Pass and then hike down to Pacchanta on Day 4, where you can enjoy the local hot springs. Trek back to Tinqui on Day 5 and take a bus back to Cuzco, where your trip ends.



Day by Day Itinerary:

Day 1: Bus Cuzco to Tinqui – Trek to Upis (L/D)

Early this morning you will be picked up from your accommodation in Cuzco and we will travel to Tinqui by bus (3900m/12795ft) past beautiful landscapes and small family farms. After a picnic in Tinqui, we will start on foot towards the community of Upis (4400m/14436ft). Along the way, we will meet local families who will show us some examples of their textile work, created to honor nature with traditional Andean symbols. We will spend the night in camping Upis with the possibility to enjoy the local hot springs.

Transport time: 4 hours
Hiking time: 5 hours

 

Day 2: Upis – Arapa pass – Yana cocha – Ausangate Pass –  Ausangate Lake (B/L/D)

After breakfast, we will ascend towards the Arapa pass (4800m/15748ft) before descending towards Yana cocha, where we will have a picnic lunch. Our route continues ascending towards the Extreme Ausangate Pass (4850m/15912ft) and ends at the shore of the beautiful Ausangate Lake (4650m/15256ft) where we will camp for the night. Be sure to pack warm clothes for the cold climate in this part of the trek.

Hiking time: 7 hours

 

Day 3: Ausangate Lake – Palomani Pass – Jampa (B/L/D)

The 3rd day is both the most beautiful and the most arduous of the trek. We will first ascend towards the highest pass of this route, called the Palomani Pass (5200m/17060ft). From here, we will have an exceptional view of the mountains and glaciers of Ausangate before descending into the valley of Finaya Pampa.  After a long, challenging day we will finally arrive at our camping site in Jampa (4700m/15420ft).

Hiking time: 8 hours

 

Day 4: Jampa – Campa pass – Pacchanta (B/L/D)

The highlight of this day is definitely the spectacular ascent to the Campa Pass (5100m/16732ft). We will also pass several lovely lagoons on the way to our camping site in Pacchanta (4350m/14270ft). Here, we will visit the hot springs for some well-earned relaxation before a typical Peruvian dinner.

Hiking time: 8 hours

 

Day 5: Pacchanta - Tinqui – Bus to Cuzco (B/L)

After breakfast, our trek continues back towards the village Tinqui (3900m/12795ft), from where we will take a bus back to Cuzco. On the way we will visit either Tipon or Saylla and have a typical dish of the region, such as guinea-pig or chicharrón (grilled pork). Your adventure ends upon arrival in Cuzco.

Hiking time: 3 hours
Transport time: 4 hours
