• Hike one of the most remote and rewarding treks near Cusco.

  • Walk among Andean villages of llama herders and farmers, where time seems to slow right down.

  • Beautiful views to some of Peru's most beautiful snow-capped peaks, glaciers and lakes.

  • Fantastic guides and support teams lead you on a life-affirming trek among nature.

The Ausangate Trek was truly spectacular – to see no Westerners for 5 whole days, in fact to see barely a soul except for a few llama herders – well, I know that for all three of us, this was just one of the most mind-blowing and humbling experiences we’ve ever had.

It tells you all you need to know that on the last night, we tried to write a top 10 of our favourite moments and within seconds had filled a page with at least 20!

Everything just worked so perfectly, and the holiday was a fantastic combination of....trekking, wilderness, sightseeing, shopping, culture….just brilliant!
