Ausangate Trail Tours and Activities

star-5
186 Reviews

The Inca Trail might be the most popular trek in the Peruvian Andes near Cusco, but anarguably equally impressive (and certainly less crowded) trail leads visitors to Mt. Ausangate.Nevado Ausangate, the highest mountain in southern Peru, peaks at 20,945 feet (6,384 meters)above sea level. On a clear day, the snow-topped peak can be seen from Cusco.

The Ausangate Trail, named after the peak, takes five to six days, plus travel time to and from Cusco from the trail head. The trail begins in the brown grasslands of the Andean plateau and crosses four high-altitude passes, covering some of the most stunning terrain in the Cusco region. The trail, much of it at altitudes of more than 13,100 feet (4,000 meters) passes high alpine lakes, glacial valleys and small villages where alpacas graze freely and residents still dress in their traditional attire.
