Day 1: Cusco – Pacchanta – 7 Lakes – Cusco
Why you will love this 7 Lakes of Ausangate Full-Day
The snowy Ausangate has incredible panoramic views throughout the mountain range in the Andes of Cusco. We found several lagoons of various colors reflecting mother nature’s minerals. Today we can make an adventure through the trails of the great Ausangate to have one of the best expeditions to the southwest of Cusco, visiting incredible high Andean mountains to take photos and videos to the fullest.
Explore the Ausangate area on a full-day trek through the Andes. We start the land trip leaving Cusco at 05:30 in the direction of Tinki and Pacchanta (4,200 meters/13,779 feet). It is essential to mention that the tourist area is cold, so bring thermal clothing to enjoy the adventure through the Andes of Ausangate.
In Pacchanta, we start the walk of 7 lagoons of Ausangate to cover 05 hours of walking, passing, and seeing the beautiful lagoons of Azulcocha, Otorongo, Pucacocha, Alqacocha, and Q’omercocha; all different sizes and scenic beauties.
During the Ausangate 7 lakes trek, we will also observe the snow-capped peaks of the tourist area, such as Ausangate (6,834 m/22,421 feet), Mariposa (5,842 m/19,166 feet), Jampa (5,500 m/18,044), Pucapunta (5,740 m/ 18,832 feet), Montaña Caracol (5,625 meters above sea level/18,454 feet), Tinki (5,300 meters/17,388 feet) and the entire Andean Mountain chain in the southwest of CUSCO.
The weather changes all the time! And it can snow, hail, rain, be full of clouds, or a sunny day with a blue sky, etc.; It is essential to know that the temperature is freezing, so we recommend thermal clothing “better get ready to enjoy the adventure.”
The flora is typical of remote areas with little fauna, but we will find llamas and alpacas in quantity since it is the ideal area for all South Andean camelids. The views are incredible, having spectacular views of the different lakes as we return along the same hiking trails. The return to the car park is easier and faster than walking back to Pacchanta.
Around Pacchanta, we find several thermal baths to splash around, relaxing after an exhausting but beautiful walk through Ausangate to the end of the circuit of 07 lakes of Ausangate Cusco. In the afternoon, we return to Cusco on a 03-hour vehicle trip; we leave the hikers in their respective hotels.
