The drive south from Cusco is very picturesque as it passes through various colonial and Inca towns with a changing panorama typical of the Peruvian Andes.
We will continue our 6-Day Ausangate Trek to the Andean community of Tinqui; we will meet our team of muleteers and pack donkeys. We load all the mountain equipment of the Ausangate Trek for 6 Days and begin our adventure through the Andes of Peru. Our first hiking trail took approximately 3 hours at a moderate pace to adapt to the elevations of the Andes gradually.
The second segment of the walk takes 2 hours to reach UPIS to have the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the thermal baths of Upis; essential to bring a bathing suit “being inside the hot springs is an incredible feeling for a remote adventure.”
The nights are cold, like every morning; We recommend wearing warm clothing for low temperatures; It helps a lot for the comfort of each hiker.
Today is one of the big days from Ausangate Trek 6 Days because we will climb our first pass of ARAPA (4850 meters or 15,915 feet). We will climb the mountain little by little until we conquer it to have two great panoramic views of contrast between the Andes, glaciers, snow-capped mountains, flora, and fauna of the Andean zone.
From the top and bottom of the trail, we have three areas of lagoons of different shades, such as reddish, green, and turquoise. For souvenir photos, count the headwaters of the great Amazonian rivers.
ARAPA Pass Summary
A few years ago, Rainbow Mountain became famous; we will visit it in an extra walk of 1 hour and a half, taking the additional path until we reach the top of the rainbow mountain 5050 meters / 16 568 feet in Ausangate Trek 6 Days. The best is that we hike the additional circuit towards the rainbow.
After appreciating and taking in enough of the colorful mountains, we return to the ANANTA HIKING TRAIL. From ANANTA, we continue our walk for an average of 03 hours until we reach Ausangate Qocha, 4,700 meters / 15,420 feet., and Palomani hiking pass to our base camp of Huchuy Pinaya. Today’s outdoor activities are varied from appreciating or observing the great snow-capped Ausangate, such as the colorful Vinicunca trail, the Red Valley, or the pass with its descent to the camp; truly remote places ideal to de-stress from the routine to find ourselves on nature walks with picturesque landscapes.
Summary 6-Day Trek Ausangate
We continue our Ausangate Trek through the Andes, ascending to the Jampa Pass (5,150 meters or 16,919 feet). Throughout the hike, we accompany Mother Nature’s silence in this part of the world with the inspiring landscape view of the unique panoramas of Ausangate. We find herds and herds of alpacas in their natural habitat running towards the frozen mountains and inter-Andean valleys; the higher the Andean camelids are, the happier they are, laughing and jumping because it is their natural habitat. We can capture excellent panoramic views of the landscapes with alpacas of different types and styles.
From the Jampa pass, we descend the mountain for approximately 02 hours until we reach Pampacancha (4050 meters) to continue our hiking adventure on the uphill path of the Andes Mountain for 03 hours until we reach the base camp of Jampa (4300 meters.)
We are nearing the end of our 6 Days Ausangate Hike vacation through the Peruvian Andes. WE BEGIN hiking for an average of 1 hour, arriving near the base and at the top of the mountain glacier. The Ausangate glacier is one of the essential mountains in South America because it is part of the source of freshwater to pass its waters through the Andes of Peru and other South American countries. For this reason, reaching this point in Ausangate is satisfactory for the whole group to take a couple of photographs.
During the afternoon, we will descend for approximately 5 hours towards and around the Qomer Qocha lagoon to conquer the last outdoor camp of Pacchanta. Pacchanta is an Andean community with attractive hot springs to take a dip and relax your muscles after several days of trekking through the Andes.
Wow, how incredible it is to be a few hours away from returning to Tinqui via Pacchanta; It is like going around the world, BUT in our case, it is going around the Ausangate glacier.
The last section of hiking is only 03 hours until you reach Tinqui. In Tinqui, we have lunch, say goodbye to our team of horses, and return to the city of Cusco after having enjoyed this incredible walk of Ausangate Trek 6 Days; thank you for exploring the Andes with our team.
The Ausangate Trek 6 days circuit brings us closer to the nature of the real Andes with impressive panoramic views. We camp in the surroundings of the thermal waters of Tinqui, frozen turquoise lakes, mountains, and spectacular geographies in combination with the habitat of the fauna of the Andes of Peru in high mountains.
