Cusco Ausangate Trek 6 Days
Ausangate trek is a long hike around the biggest mountain in southern Peru in Cusco (Cuzco), the broad and majestic Ausangate (6384m), and offers glimpses of high altitude wildlife and pastoral people living with their animals, quietly apart from the turmoil of the modern world. We pass ice walls, a glacier, the cascades of a frozen river, and numerous springs of hot and medicinal underground water.
The mountaineer will also find lovely views over the surrounding countryside, looking down into fertile valleys and across to the Vilcanota Mountains. These snow covered ranges arc away to the east, the southeast, then the south, protecting the valley of Canchis. From these high mountains, cold waters whisper through totora swamps south to Titicaca Lake.
Eager rapids plunge north into the tropical Inambari. And from the glacier-fed lakes of the Canchis valley, rich green waters feed the Vilcanota River and Sacred Valley in Cusco (Cuzco). We may observe rare Andean wildlife in the high wilderness, such as vicuña, vizcacha, condors, flamingos, Andean geese, and ibises..
