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.”

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.

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 are nearing the end of our 6 Days Ausangate Hike vacation through the Peruvian Andes. WE BEGIN hiking for an average of 01 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.
