A five-day breathtaking trek in the Cordillera Vilcanota, on a route we call the “The trail of the Apu” located in close proximity to the highest sacred mountain in the Cusco region, Mt. Ausangate. The Apu Ausangate is the bearer of life and the guardian of one of the most pristine mountain ecosystems in the world.

The trek is accompanied by llamas and horses that will carry our gear. These are owned by shepherds of the native community of Chillca who are proud to share their land with us, as well as the Spirit of their inspiring world. On our hikes and in our unique Andean lodges, daily meals will be prepared by experienced chefs who will introduce you to a great variety of delicious Peruvian dishes and produce, and for your entertainment: authentic vernacular music, played by local inhabitants, will liven up some of our evenings at the "tambos."

Other Practical InformationTo go on this Trail of the Apu Ausangate Trek, one must be in good physical condition, and we recommend a preliminary 3 to 4-day acclimatization stage, for your body to react better during the trek, as we will be hiking up to mountain passes at altitudes of about 5,000 meters, and it also is important to drink plenty of water. The dry season in Cusco is between March and November, however, it is difficult to predict the weather in the mountains, and you always have to be prepared for rain.
