Classic Ausangate Trek and Rainbow Mountain 5 Days

Trip introduction

The next 5 days, we will explore hiking through APU AUSANGATE and the mountains of colors called VINICUNCA. This is an impressive five-day trek in the Vilcabamba mountain range, on a route called "Camino del Apu Ausangate", located in the immediate vicinity of the highest sacred mountains in Cusco. The Apu is the bearer of Life and guardian of one of the most varied ecosystems of untouched mountains in the world. Unlike the Inca Trail, no permission is required for the Ausangate walk. The hike is one of the quietest in the area and you probably will not see another hiker.

The hike offers a variety of wildlife including flying condors, vicuna, bobcats and pumas. The campsites are often next to beautiful blue lakes. You will also have the opportunity to see the Rainbow Mountain! The colorful sandstone mountains in the Vinicunca area is probably the best thing you will see in Peru!
