What to Expect on Ausangate Treks

Embarking on Ausangate Treks is an adventure that requires good physical condition, a spirit of adventure, and respect for the local culture and environment. The treks usually begin in Tinki, a small village situated about a hundred kilometers northeast of Cusco. From there, trekkers ascend into the mountains, where the paths lead through traditional Andean communities.

One of the highlights of Ausangate Treks is the opportunity to interact with the local Quechua people. Many trekkers choose to visit during one of the local festivals, which can provide a deeper insight into the community’s traditions and religious practices. The trek routes also feature natural hot springs, which are perfect for a soothing soak after a long day of hiking.

Ausangate Treks are best undertaken between May and November, which offers the clearest skies and the most stable weather conditions. It's essential to bring appropriate gear, including waterproof clothing, a good sleeping bag, and layers for cold weather.
